Gunung Datuk for the second time

Yesterday (November 12, 2012) I revisited Gunung Datuk with a few of my old high school (SMK Taman SEA) friends.

I’ve updated my first post on Gunung Datuk with new photographs and information, so you should head there if you’re interested in photos and information.

Bukit Kutu (2nd time)

My 2nd visit to Bukit Kutu. This post is more of an addition to my first post on Bukit Kutu, to provide more thorough information on the Bukit Kutu climbing experience.

Gunung Angsi (Bukit Putus & Ulu Bendul)

A short 5 hour excursion to Gunung Angsi, up via Ulu Bendul, down via Bukit Putus.

Gunung Rajah (Failed)

A failed attempt on the majestic 1683m Gunung Rajah near Chamang, Bentong, Pahang.

Gunung Ledang (Mt. Ophir)

Gunung Ledang, the highest peak in the state of Johor, is said to be one of the most popular mountains in the Peninsular Malaysia. After my trip there, it’s easy to see why – the climb is very interesting, and the views (on a clear day) are great. Gunung Ledang is not part of any mountain range, and thus standing at 1273m provides unobstructed views of its surroundings.

Gunung Nuang (via Pangsun/Hulu Langat)

After my 1st attempt at climbing Gunung Nuang and failing, I have been itching to go back and try again. Many non-outdoorsy people who have climbed Nuang before may think I’m crazy – after all, what does Nuang have to offer besides a long, boring road and leeches? Surely I could just jog around the field outside my house for the exercise, right? Well, read on to find out what Nuang had in store for the 2 of us who finally made it up to the summit this round!

Saga Hill

Saga Hill (Bukit Saga) is actually just one peak of many on a hill with a large, flat top, near Cheras. After the many mountains that I have been climbing, Saga Hill is definitely a very easy climb, with well maintained trails and a reachable summit of ~430m. There are many routes to choose from, which start from various sides of the hill. Saga Hill refers to the hilltop nearest the small town of Taman Saga, where the starting point is.

Bukit Tabur East

A short excursion to Bukit Tabur East, the less known trail of Bukit Tabur, but just as risky.
