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

Samoeng Loop

The day began with incessant drizzle so we were forced to hunker down in the room and to wait it out. By the time the sun eventually came back out, too much time had passed for a trip to Doi Inthanon to be feasible, so we opted to ride around a 100km circuit, called the 'Samoeng Loop', instead in order to visit some of the attractions that the loop had to offer. I also figured that it was quite apt to loop around the mountain range that we had climbed just the day before. Read more

Doi Suthep

We began the day with plenty of food, ordering yellow curry THB89/4 and red curry that we shared THB89/4, and three plates of rice for myself THB30). After settling the tab, we all grabbed our bags and jumped on the new van (get someone from Jira's homestay to call for the times beforehand) that went straight into the city of Chiang Mai for a mere THB35, that ended up dropping us off at Tapae gate.

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

Mount Stong, Mount Ayam, and Mount Baha

Baha's Camp - Mount Stong, Mount Ayam, and Mount Baha - Stong Waterfall

Hiking to the Peaks


The group had split with Taner, Jenna and I eager to hike to the three peaks whilst the others decided to stay behind and explore the waterfalls. By the time the three of us set off from Baha Camp it was already 10:26. We made our way to the crossroads that lay just outside the campsite quickly to avoid any guides that may still be lingering around the camp just in case they tried to prevent us from heading up to the summits 'unguided'. Once we arrived at the crossroads, we turned left following the signpost that said 'Gunung Stong. Gunung Ayam'. Read more

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 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.
