Pauh Campsite - Mount Jasar - Mount Brinchang - Mount Irau

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


*Cick here to learn more about the difficulty rating.


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


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


Difficulty Rating : 3.4 / 10.0 (Class 4 - Fairly Straightforward)

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.

Mount Datuk Sunrise


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


*Cick here to learn more about the difficulty rating.


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.

Thaiwand Wall Cave


We made our way back to the Thaiwand Wall Cave with the specific intent to climb up to the mouth of the cave, haul everything up, and then descend through the cave to the other side. This was something that we had planned to do on the previous trip to Thaiwand Wall but had unfortunately run out of daylight. Read more

Monkey Madness!


I woke up pretty early that day so after purchasing two cans of Birdee robusta coffee (THB20 each), I made my way over to West Railay to pass the time. There are several ways to get across with most of them passing through alleys and paths until they merge with Walking Street. They are used quite frequently by both tourists and the locals alike and almost everyone can direct you if you have any uncertainties. Read more

Kayaking Railay West


I made my way to Railay West after having purchased my two cans of daily Birdie robusta coffee (THB20 each) with Cass and Jamie who were both eager to kayak having missed out the chance the year before. The weather was overcast with barely any sun visible which in my opinion is perfect for a day of kayaking since being in a kayak leaves one so exposed. The rates for kayak rental were THB200 for the first hour with an additional THB100 for every hour after that (same for both double and triple-seaters). Read more
