Tok Nenek, Bubu, Yong Yap (TNBYY)


I was pretty disappointed at first when I found out that the original plan to Gunung Tahan had changed although the feeling quickly dissipated once I found out that we were to be going to Yong Yap, one of the G12 mountains, instead. I ended up paying RM30 for DATS membership which made me legible for the membership price of RM180 which included the following :

  • Arrangement of activities
  • Certified Outward Bound Trekkers Guide
  • Trekking Permit
  • Camping Equipment 
  • Kitchen Equipment
  • Foods & Beverages
  • Moisture Wicking T-Shirt

I had also recently obtained the awesome Hennessy Hammock Explorer and just could not wait to test it out!

Before we go on, please jot down the numbers that are listed below. If you do see any suspicious behaviour when out hiking, encounter things like traps and snares, or even see protected animals or their parts that are sold as either collectibles, pets, or for (so-called) medicine, then please do not hesitate to contact the wildlife crime hotline. Be sure to try and document it as best you can with photos or video without putting yourself in danger, and take note of the details: descriptions of those who are involved, as well as when and where it took place.
