Trail 9A (Cameron Highlands)

Pauh Campsite - Mount Jasar - Mount Brinchang - Mount Irau

The Plan


The initial plan was to head for the Robinson Waterfall for some rest and relaxation after the morning's trek to Mount Brinchang. The beginning of trail 9 that lead to the waterfall began at the side of a road that lay nearby the MARDI center (conducts research in agriculture, food and agro-based industries), just after turning right at a T-junction before one reaches the hospital.

Mount Jasar (Cameron Highlands)

Cameron Highlands Index

Pauh Campsite - Mount Jasar - Mount Berembun Mount Brinchang - Mount Irau

Mount Jasar


Mount Jasar can be reached with a short trek via trail 6 from the Cameron Bharat Tea Plantation as well as from trail 10 which begins just behind the Oly Appartments and at the end of Tan's Cammellia Garden. Tan's Camellia Garden is private property however so if you find the gates to be closed, you can just head up the slope to the right of the compound before you reach the gates which will also end up leading to trail 10.

Lost in the Jungle

The plan was to start from Ulu Kinta and head to the start of the trail before making our way to Camp Seroja and then on to Camp Kijang. From there we would have gone on to the waterfall & LWP (Last Water Point) before reaching Mount Botak (1817m) which lay just before the summit of Mount Korbu (2183m) and Mount Gayong (2173m) - which were both members of the exclusive G7 group of mountains.

Mount Ulu Semangkok & Mount Gap


Mount Ulu Semangkok


Mount Ulu Semangkok is located in the Ulu Tranum Forest Reserve that lies in-between the states of Selangor and Pahang. A lot of people seem to mistake Mount Ulu Semangkok for Mount Semangkok which is a completely different mountain with a summit that lies at a much higher altitude and a trail that makes for a much tougher trek. The trail that we took leads to the summit of another mountain called Mount Gap, which lies at an altitude of 1183m, before continuing on to the summit of Mount Ulu Semangkok (elevation : 1394m).

Mount Datuk Sunrise


Mount Datuk


Mount Datuk (also known as Mount Rembau or Mount Datuk Rembau) was apparently named after Dato' Perpatih Nan Sebatang who in 1372 was said to have organized a gathering of leaders in order to elect a clan chief (Dato' Lembaga). The town of Rembau itself lies about 25km South of Seremban in the state of Negeri Sembilan which meant that we had to leave Kuala Lumpur extremely early in order to be able to reach the summit of Mount Datuk (elevation : 884m) in time for sunrise.

Mount Bunga Buah


Bunga Buah


We set off early in the morning to the small town of Goh Tong Jaya, which is a satellite town of Genting named after the former chairman of the Genting Group. We gathered at the 'Nasi Kandar Genting' mamak shop just next to the Seri Malaysia Hotel at 08:00, where we stocked up on some Nasi Lemak for breakfast as well as bottles of water to sustain us throughout the trek.

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 (MYR5). Read more
