Mount Nuang (Janda Baik)

Via Kuala Pangsoon - Via Janda Baik

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


*Cick here to learn more about the difficulty rating.


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

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

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


The early gathering of the Kuala Lumpur Hiking & Trail Running group at the Frasier'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

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
