Lepok Waterfall


Difficulty Rating : 2.6 / 10.0 (Class 3 - Straightforward)


*Cick here to learn more about the difficulty rating.


Lepok Waterfall


Lepok Waterfall is a relatively small waterfall, but the cascades and the rock formation that it runs over make it a fairly attractive one. The waterfall is located in the jungles of Ulu Langat, and lies just 3 kilometres to the west-southwest of the summit of Nuang. Read more

Jerangkang Waterfall


Difficulty Rating : 2.4 / 10.0 (Class 2 - Very Straightforward)


*Cick here to learn more about the difficulty rating.


Jerangkang Waterfall


Jerangkang Waterfall makes up a gorgeous series of cascades and turquoise pools that, in my opinion, is far more worthwhile than its nearby sibling, Berkelah Waterfall. Although you will find huge crowds at the lower levels of both waterfalls, the upper levels of Jerangkang seem to be relatively devoid of people and as such, are far cleaner. Read more

Mount Nuang (Janda Baik)

Via Kuala Pangsoon - Via Janda Baik

Difficulty Rating : 4.2 / 10.0 (Class 5 - Moderate)

Mount Nuang


The Janda Baik trail is an alternative trail that leads up to Mt. Nuang from the other side of the mountain, and was one that I had been contemplating ever since I hiked Nuang via Kuala Pangsoon. The plans for this hike were made last minute after a few of our plans for that public holiday had fallen through. So with the car packed full of daypacks and people, and the GPS route preloaded on my Suunto Ambit, we set off for the ride up to Janda Baik early, well before daybreak. Read more

Berkelah Waterfall


Difficulty Rating : 3.0 / 10.0 (Class 3 - Straightforward)


*Cick here to learn more about the difficulty rating.


Berkelah Waterfall


Berkelah Waterfall is one of the most popular waterfalls in Malaysia. The impressive series of multiple cascades that you can find there and its accessibility make it easy to see why that is so. Unfortunately, one is reminded very quickly that with throngs of people comes mounds of rubbish. Read more

Chemerong Waterfall


Difficulty Rating : 2.4 / 10.0 (Class 2 - Very Straightforward)

Chemerong Waterfall


Reputed to tower upwards of 300 metres is the mighty Chemerong Waterfall, located in the Pasir Raja Forest Reserve in Dungun, Terengganu. The waterfall lies at the trailhead for the Chemerong-Berembun-Langsir (CBL) hike, which is located fairly close to the main entrance of the park. A short, hour-long hike from there will bring you to the base of the waterfall. Read more

Getting to Banyuwangi


It was still very early in the morning when I clambered into the sweltering bus that was heading to Banyuwangi from the Ubung bus terminal in Bali. Still bleary-eyed from the lack of sleep, I paid the IDR850k for the bus ticket - a rate that seems to have been standardised amongst all the bus services, and included the cost of the ferry from Gilimanuk to Ketapang - and squeezed my way through the narrow rows trying to find an unoccupied seat next to the window. I knew we would be travelling west on the coastal road, so in order to get the views of the coast, I made sure that the seat was on the left side of the bus. Read more

Western Arthurs Day 10 & 11 : Lake Rosanne - Wullyawa Creek - Scott's Peak Dam

Western Arthur Range Index

Crepuscular Rays


Today was going to be a long day. We had 20 kilometres to cover, a distance that was definitely manageable, but was considered long compared to the average daily distances that we had covered over the previous week. I was already a little weary by then but the fact that the walk was mainly downhill made me feel a lot better about the task up ahead. Read more

Western Arthurs Day 9 : Promontory Lake - West Portal - Lake Rosanne

Western Arthur Range Index

A Change of Plans


I awoke with a start and realised very quickly that the drumming of the rain had stopped and that a heavy silence had blanketed us. It was still dark outside as it was well before dawn, but since the storm had passed, I decided to crawl out of my sleeping bag to stretch my legs and to get some much needed fresh air. As I emerged from my tent, I was greeted by a sky that was blazing with stars. The storm had moved away and its cloud-cover could still be seen, low on the distant horizon, intermittently lit from within by flashes of lightning. Read more

Western Arthurs Day 7 : Haven Lake - Mt. Scorpio - Promontory Lake

Western Arthur Range Index

Lakes Galore


It was dawn of the seventh day and breaking camp had become an established routine - a change clothes, coffee, a visit the privy, and some breakfast, before replenishing my water supply and packing my bag. Once I was ready to set off, I made my way along the trail and continued up the hill for approximately 100 metres Eastwards towards the viewpoint that was located on the saddle. I turned left here to continue along the main track instead of turning right, which would have taken me on the 2-3 hours return trip to the summit of Mt. Aldebaran (elevation : 1107m) and continued on past the magnificent views. Read more

Western Arthurs Day 6 : High Moor - Beggary Bumps - Haven Lake

Western Arthur Range Index

The Beggary Bumps


We set off from High Moor at 10:00 that day, very glad that the storm had finally subsided. After clearing camp, we walked South-Eastwards along the wooden walkway, past the toilet, and began the short climb onto the ridge above us. When we reached the top, we were greeted by spectacular views of the lakes as the ridge ran above and between the two lakes of Lake Saturn and Lake Ganymede, with the former on the left and the latter on the right (travelling Eastwards).
