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

Jerangkang Waterfall


Difficulty Rating : 2.4 / 10.0 (Class 2 - Very Straightforward)


*Cick here to learn more about the difficulty rating.


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

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

Berkelah Waterfall


Difficulty Rating : 3.0 / 10.0 (Class 3 - Straightforward)


*Cick here to learn more about the difficulty rating.


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

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

It is located in the 21,950 hectare 'Gunung Stong State Park' that was formerly known as Jelawang Jungle.

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

Difficulty Rating : 4.6 / 10.0 (Class 6 - Fairly Challenging)

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

The camp serves as a launching point for trips up to the higher levels of the waterfall as well as for treks to the multitude of peaks that one can find in the area, the most renowned being Mount Stong and Mount Ayam.

Tabur East Sunrise

Tabur West - Tabur East - Tabur Far East - Tabur Extreme

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


*Cick here to learn more about the difficulty rating.


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
