Pine Tree Hill


Pine Tree Hill


The early gathering of the Kuala Lumpur Hiking & Trail Running group at the Fraser's Hill clocktower at 07:15 was very welcome after the long ride in the early hours of the morning. I found the night before to be completely devoid of sleep and as seems to always be the case, weariness began to creep in just as we were setting out. Read more

Kubang Gajah Waterfall

Tabur West - Tabur East - Tabur Far East - Tabur Extreme
Waterfalls of Malaysia

Kubang Gajah Waterfall


The trek to the Kubang Gajah Waterfall ("Elephant Waterhole"), that is also known as 'Sungai Ampang Waterfall', 'Kemensah Waterfall', as well as 'Sofea Jane Waterfall', was preceded by a trek up to Tabur West that had been organized for several couchsurfers. I won't go into the details of the Tabur trek as Tabur (West) has already been covered in one of my earlier posts. The Movescount details for this trek can be found here though if you are interested.

Saga Hill & Waterfall

Waterfalls of Malaysia

Saga Hill


Saga Hill was a pretty straightforward trek compared to almost everything else that I had done before. Despite the pace being very slow as the fairly large group had a lot of beginners, the peak was reached with roughly a half hour of steady trekking. The trail up to the peak lacked a view however but due to the low level of difficulty and it's proximity to the city center, it is optimal for those who are either new to trekking and don't want something too strenuous or for those who are looking for a quick trek close by. We followed trail C which had an ascent that was fairly constant up to the summit, with a trail that seemed to be fairly well maintained, even with steps built in at certain points. Read more

Mount Bromo


Bus from Bangurasih


I had read up a bit on Surabaya prior to the Bromo trip and because it was reputed to be mainly a commercial metropolitan area without many attractions, I had decided to instead head straight for Probolinggo which lies about 45 kilometres from the Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park on the North coast of East Java. To get to Probolinggo from Juanda International Airport, I had to board a Damri bus that was heading to Surabaya's Bungurasih bus terminal (also called Purabaya) and board another bus to Probolinggo from there. The Damri bus (pronounced 'bis' in Bahasa Indonesia) just lay outside the airport arrival terminal and the fee only amounted to IDR15k. Read more

Mount Nuang (Kuala Pangsoon)

Via Kuala Pangsoon - Via Janda Baik

Mount Nuang


The group rose bright and early for the long drive to Kuala Pangsoon in Hulu Langat which lay on the East side of the state of Selangor. The trail for the trek up to the summit of Mount Nuang, which is one of the highest mountains in Selangor, began just before the Sungai Langat Dam at GPS coordinates '3.217420, 101.883090'.

Tok Nenek, Bubu, Yong Yap (TNBYY) – Day 4

TNBYY Index

Kem Agas


The camp woke up slowly and lazily as we were all aware that we had a lot of time to spare and that there was no rush. Since the camp was not shrouded in darkness any longer, I finally got to appreciate the size and space of Kem Agas, which was by far the best campsite of the entire trip. The camp was also in very close proximity to a large river that gave us access to clean water for drinking, cooking and washing; clean water that I was immensely grateful for as I had previously taken it for granted.
