Cameron Highlands


Cameron Highlands (Chinese: 金马崙高原, Tamil: கேமரன் மலை) is Malaysia's largest hill-station area, and with an elevation that ranges from 1300m to 1800m and a mean annual temperature of about 18 °C, is famous for its cool weather and huge tea plantations that decorate its rolling hills. The area was named after William Cameron, an explorer who mapped the area back in 1885. Read more

Mount Tok Nenek (Single)


The TNBYY Loop


Mount Tok Nenek (elevation: 1904m) is well-known for the spectacular 360-degree views that its jagged summit has to offer. The hike to the summit follows a fairly well-established route that heads north-westwards towards the peak. Once you reach the peak, you either turn around to follow the same route back down (called 'Tok Nenek Single'), or continue northwards on to the peaks of Bubu (elevation: 1974m) and Yong Yap (elevation: 2168m), before arcing back around towards the start (called the TNBYY loop or YYBTN if hiked counter-clockwise). The long, Titwangsa v2 hike also shares the western sections of the TNBYY Loop. Read more

Lepok Waterfall


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

Jerangkang Waterfall


Jerangkang Waterfall


Jerangkang Waterfall makes up a gorgeous series of cascades and turquoise pools that, in my opinion, is far more worthwhile than its nearby sibling, Berkelah Waterfall. Although you will find huge crowds at the lower levels of both waterfalls, the upper levels of Jerangkang seem to be relatively devoid of people and as such, are far cleaner. Read more

The Arrival of Friends

The sun was out in all its glory that morning, prompting us to quickly grab our climbing gear and to head out to the Crazy Horse Buttress as soon as we could! We decided to head straight to the Furnace this time around, mainly because of the number of times that we had passed by the wall. The two routes that we decided to warm up on were located on the far left of the wall and had their anchors veering off to the right so we made it a point to watch our rope management with the tree as we lowered off.

Songthaews

We made our way, bright and early, out of Chiang Mai's Tha Phae Gate (East Gate) and eastwards to Warorot Market (ตลาดวโรรส), the point where the yellow songthaews that made their way to Mae On District for the buttress of Crazy Horse supposedly waited. We hadn't had much time at all to see the city since we had arrived in Chiang Mai late the day before, but that hadn't left me discouraged in the slightest as we had travelled all this way predominantly for the excellent rock climbing that Chiang Mai was reputed to have on offer.

Mount Nuang (Janda Baik)

Via Kuala Pangsoon - Via Janda Baik

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

Berkelah Waterfall


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

Chemerong Waterfall


Chemerong Waterfall


Reputed to tower upwards of 300 metres is the mighty Chemerong Waterfall, located in the Pasir Raja Forest Reserve in Dungun, Terengganu. The waterfall lies at the trailhead for the Chemerong-Berembun-Langsir (CBL) hike, which is located fairly close to the main entrance of the park. A short, hour-long hike from there will bring you to the base of the waterfall. Read more

Cape to Cape Day 05 – Conto's Campsite to Deepdene

Cape to Cape Index

The Boranup Karri Forest


Cape to Cape Track I was very eager to get away from the crowds of Canto's Campsite that morning, so I packed up my hammock quickly and skirted the hoards of campervans and oversized (and excessive) tents in order to make my way out of the campgrounds. I arrived at the sign outside the entrance and turned left down the trail, circumventing the boundaries of the massive campsite. The trail was refreshingly thin here and undulated around the bushland for approximately 900 metres or so with views opening up of the beautiful green carpets of the canopies of trees off in the distance to my right. I reached a junction that branched off left back to Canto's (that is how big the campgrounds were!) and right descending into the woods along a firebreak that carved through the foliage as far as my eye could see.
