Overview

Gaharu Tea Valley Gopeng (務邊沉香山茶園). HOGA had a quiet and unofficial inception in 1992. At present, the plantation located within the quaint little town of Gopeng, has 200,000 trees of a special Aquilaria spp (Gaharu Gopeng, Geographical Patent GI2013:00005) and other natural attractions that will leave you mesmerized. The Gaharu tree is listed as an endangered species by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna known as CITES. It is not only organically cultivated here to further prevent its extinction but Gaharu Tea Valley Gopeng is the only plantation with 300 acres of the special hybrid Aquilaria spp trees. Due to its uniqueness, Gaharu Gopeng has been aptly coined as HOGA (Holistic Gaharu). It is indeed holistic in its quality as its benefits can be extracted from every part of the tree. Gaharu, commonly known as Agarwood and also called Eaglewood, Aloeswood, ChenXiang, (沉香), Jin-koh (沈香), or Oud (عود) in different countries, has many beneficial and healing properties. Possessing such an array of valuable qualities, Gaharu has played a vast and significant role in Middle Eastern, Chinese and Ayurvedic cultures and the earliest documented use of Agarwood was in 600 CE but its existence in the medicinal

It's a huge Gaharu plantation farm. Take a tour with only RM10. Beside the tour, there is a few F&B outlets which are selling Gaharu related food, drink & related products. Try their gaharu ice-cream 👍
