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

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

Tabur East Sunrise

Tabur East


This trek was another of a series of sunrise treks that were undertaken in the wee hours of the morning. By the time we parked the car and located the huge twin pipes that we needed to follow, it was already 05:10. The pipes can either be located from the end of the Jalan Kolam Air road or from the road that leads to the Klang Gates Dam where trekkers park there car for the Tabur West trek (marked 'A' in the map). If one goes from this road however, you will need to walk along the green fence from the dam entrance until you come upon a short flight of steps. Head through this entrance and pass a small creek (where you can wash up after either the Tabur East or Tabur West trek) until you come upon the pipes. Read more

Trail 9A (Cameron Highlands)

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 (Cameron Highlands)

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.

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.

Saga Hill & Waterfall


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


*Cick here to learn more about the difficulty rating.


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

Tabur West


We finally set off for the Tabur (West) hike after the trip having been postponed from the weekend before. Bukit Tabur is a quartz ridge, that is also known as 'The Dragon Backbone', located at Taman Melawati in Kuala Lumpur. It is apparently the longest quartz outcrop in the world that boasts a wide range of flora and fauna, including Dusky Langurs (Trachypithecus obscurus). I didn't actually see any langurs during the hike itself but definitely heard all the commotion that they were making! Tabur has several peaks that can be traversed but the trail for the more popular West route starts on the left side of the road (coming from KL) near the Klang Gates entrance. Read more
