Sungai Buloh was once a leper colony, shut out from the outside world. Through this tour, we will reveal the stories of the residents- how their lives and fate of the settlement are interwoven and sealed in that era.

About eighty years ago, a self-sufficient community existed to accommodate leprosy patients, who were forcibly separated from the love of their families, the society at large and even their self-identity.

We are going to walk you through this journey towards understanding the preservation of this peculiar, nostalgic neighborhood. If it's not already a highlight in your itinerary of your visit to Selangor, this trip will guarantee to touch you through a series of eye-opening endeavor, all in a day's walk along the alleys of the Valley of Hope. Join us in this heritage tour as we embark on a journey to hear unspoken stories of this place and its people.

Our mission is to unite former leprosy patients and their Generation through all possible means. In the end, we hope to empower them with knowledge and courage to preserve their family history, to be passed down to myriad generations.

Very good. It would be more awesome if tour guide could narrate stories or incidents happened in the past so that we could appreciate this asymlum even better. But all in all, it's pretty good now.

Love the story sharing session by yen nee. It was so heartwarming to see the reunion of the long lost daughter and mother, emotions just welled up within me ! Witnessed the power of TED as well. Hopefully as time goes I can accumulate the strength to share a story too! Keep it up!

The trip was remarkably good. We were offered touring by the descendants of the residents here and social volunteer, lastly story telling by the senator.

Eye and mind-opening. A great tour down the meaningful, educational and historical memory lane that most people have forgotten, both on the history of leprosy infection, as well as the contributions/sacrifices that the leprosy patients have made in the past. It was even better when the stories were told by the generations who have lived through that era and giving us a taste of what it was like back then.
