Good idea about target shooting. I've done target shooting as well although .22 pistol is not as much fun as 9mm and bullets aren't cheap. Unfortunately you'll need a club membership to go for larger caliber bullets or rifles/shotguns.

Selangor Shooting Club near the old Subang Airport for outdoor .22 pistol and City Square Shooting Gallery for indoor 9mm handguns. Both accept walk ins.

Oh. Yup Datuk was extremely challenging. That time we started climbing at 3+pm. Halfway up, due the rain clouds, it became really dark and we started to panic. No torchlight. If sky dark 100% GG spend the night on the mountain. We rushed so much it only took us 1hour 30 minutes to climb up... Felt like I was gonna get a heart attack though... the view was amazing though... Can see the sun setting on the Straits of Malacca... Complete review with some great shots below.

Well I gotta enjoy myself while I still can. The clock is ticking... In July/August I'll probably get my posting and then god knows if I'll be able to run around doing such things. Must live life to the fullest, especially since this is my last ever school holiday. It's the working life after this...

@ Keong : Very nice photos you have there. Another thing I'll try to pick up during my break will be some photography books. XD Though with only my Lumix LX3, results probably wont be as stunning as yours...

This is a tricky question. To be honest, it all depends on your comfort zone. Some people I have met can't go without their favorite pillow and will even go to extra length to bring that along. Some people I have seen can manage with just a tarp over their head.

If I may suggest:

A minimum kit (you MUST have with you at all times, even on a short day hike)
A lighter (waterproofed) with some strips of inner tyre rubber (tube) to help start a fire
A Fox40 whistle (used to attract attention)
A tarp or flysheet ( for shelter)
A knife (preferably NOT a foldable knife)
Some food bars (chocolate is fine)
Some strings or rope
Medications (if you require ay)
Basic first aid
Headtorch (make sure batteries are good)
A small billy (for boiling water)
A compass (you must know how to use one)

For an over nite
Choose either a tent (with a flysheet) or a hammock
Your MINIMUM kit above
A change of clothes for night sleep
Your hygiene kit (soap, toothbrush etc)
Extra batteries for your head torch
Your cooking kit and food
Extra garbage bags to keep clothes dry and also to take out rubbish


The above list I would say is your minimum. Other things you can add in.

Most importantly is that you need to know what you are doing. Having a first aid kit and not knowing how to use it is close to suicide.
Go with friends who have experience and never underestimate what the jungle is capable of.
Notify someone of your plans (where, when, who) for the trip so that they know where to look for you in case of emergencies.

Hi...there are but the more known ones like Subang Lake (fishing) are all fished out.
Titiwangsa is having problems with its water quality.
Batu Dam allows no fishing, let alone camping.

There are popular rivers as well but they are normally overcrowded with morons who leave the place filled with rubbish after their 'nature trip'.

I suggest you join some of the local groups to discover some of the hidden places .

Good luck!

Not really. Some are natural or half natural. I did go one which manage by a malay family. This place for picnic, fishing but not sure can camp or not. Well manage and those pond water is from beside river. Another place is ulu yam dam and along the road. And dusun dam, ulu langat or beside river. Did camp there before, but don't think got fish.

Does anyone know of an adventure club in Malaysia where its members frequently go for kayaking, hiking, camping, etc..?

Thanks!

Also which countries/places are good adventure sites? I'm thinking of going to Southern New Zealand for that, I heard there's great scenery..Anyone been there done that?

I'm planning a leisure camp on a beach this December. Need some recommendations about whr to go.

It'll be a small group. Maybe 4-5 people only. A night or two, depending on the situation. In the daytime I was thinking to visit some local tourism spots (if any), then at night enjoy the seaside. Plan to do a BBQ also with own equipment if necessary.

Rather worried about safety... human and nature.
It'll be monsoon season, so the East Coast might not be safe.

Any beach which are safe to camp and are not too crowded? Preferably not on an island.

Morning06...tents are good overall shelters but probably not the best when you want to walk long hours and camp in the jungle.
I am NOT saying it is not good. But consider trying hammocks. They are more practical in our jungle. Tents more suitable for top of the mountains, beach (no trees) and established parks (Hutan Lipur etc).

Nichi...for as long as you go to beaches accessible easily to people, you are at risk of being robbed etc. The bigger your group, the safer you may be.
I would suggest you consider either two options. 1...go to beaches with plenty of people. Even places like PD because there are many people, help is easier to get.
Option 2...go to really remote beaches where no other humans are around. But do this only if you and your group are competent campers. You MUST know what you are doing and you MUST let the authorities know where you are.

Happy camping!

There are many places to camp and to be honest, with the current season, rivers are not the best place for the time being. Flash floods have claimed a few lives and the dangers are real.

You mentioned you do not have camping knowledge/ experience. I strongly suggest that you consider finding a few experienced friends to go with. Start with something easy and safe and gradually make your way to trips that are more adventurous.

One of the best place I can suggest is for Chilling Waterfall. You are NOT allowed to camp at the waterfall but a good campground with good and clean facility has been build at the park entrance. The park rangers are there too. Go there and try your first camping there. During the day, you guys can go to the waterfall (but check for safety with the park rangers first). Chilling has in the past claim some lives!

Hi...there are several groups on Facebook. Try waterfall survivors. They are crazy about waterfalls and do organize camping trips from time to time.
For jungle hikes, you can consider putting together your own group of friends. Just make sure that your do the necessary preps befor going out (equipment, knowledge etc).

Hope this helps.

Good idea about target shooting. I've done target shooting as well although .22 pistol is not as much fun as 9mm and bullets aren't cheap. Unfortunately you'll need a club membership to go for larger caliber bullets or rifles/shotguns.

Selangor Shooting Club near the old Subang Airport for outdoor .22 pistol and City Square Shooting Gallery for indoor 9mm handguns. Both accept walk ins.

Can someone tell me how to go to this Shooting Club , address or any contact no? How much their charge per person? need license to play? smile.gif

Hi ZintanthraX...there are many places to camp in Selangor. Some places however like Chilling waterfall at KKB requires advance permission from the fisheries dept. They have good facilities there.

Camping near waterfalls and rivers are great experiences. But they are also very dangerous because of flash floods. Unless it is a established campsite AND your group is experienced, I would recommend that you start camping somewhere far from a river.

As for fishing, I doubt if you will get much luck at rivers unless you are willing to hike many many hours in to camp. Your best bet is to find an area with fish ponds or the beach.

Hope you have a good & safe trip!

The journey sounds far but it doesn't at all. Just need to careful when you are river crossing as you will be crossing 5-6 times to reach to the main waterfall event. When the weather show sign of raining, do pack and head back to the base camp.

Hi Shin...
You can get them at most hard ware shops. Some shops even sells them in pre-stitched, eyelets sizes. Sizes range from 6fX3f to as big as 9fX6f.
The bigger they are, the heavier they are to carry though.
Lightweight tarps don come cheap though.

i am planning to go for a hike to a hill near my town. all of my friends are eager to go. let me lay down the circumstances.

1) there's no map for the place
2) though, many people have went there and got back safely. nobody died or got seriously injured before
3) there's 3 of us who have been there before.
4) one of us knows how to read the compass
5) the hill is very near the town center. (there's network coverage)

the thing is that, people around me are not encouraging me to go. they say that we will end up getting lost. but i am up for a little adventure. i really don't know as to whether or not i should lead them. anyone here from Bentong, Pahang? went up there recently?

PS - there was once when my dad got lost, he still manage to call back home to inform us.

Hi AlexLee...there are so many places to go camping. It all boils down to what level if your group at. Do not underestimate our Malaysian Jungle. It is not the easiest place to be in and can be rather daunting.

For school groups, best that you find established places that provide security and safety.

Dear All,

Appreciate your kind input on (actual)camping site available which is not too extreme in Selangor preferably nearby or in Klang Valley, a few friends of mine is planing on a 3d2n camping activity with few girls involved thus some of them have their worries on security and convenience on the camp site (trust convenience wise wont be much of an issue as most of them expect what is to come about when they mean camping).

To those who are lazy to read:-

- I need campsite name/location and procedures (if any to camp there)
- Any useful advice or better past experience

P.S: any1 camped on brogahill before? will it be safe and convenient?

hmm.gif Camping is roughing it out and maybe adventurous to some. If you want a camping site, it must be near a water source. I don't think Broga has a water source eg. by the river banks that are clean and clear. I can think of Ulu Pangsoon which is at the 18th mile Ulu Langat. Entrance is via Cheras near the 11th mile. Safety wise, it is better to have at least one or better, more that are used to camping. The river there is a quite clear and clean and you need to register with the Forestry wardens there so safety wise is OK. I was late once coming out and they sent villagers to look for us.

It is also the starting trail for Gunung Nuang which is the highest peak in Selangor. The entrance is at the Forestry Department in Ulu Pangsoon.
PS. You have to hike 5 kms. to reach the river banks though.

Anyone can recommend any nice camping locations that has a hike to the camp spot and a location good to camp? not experts but not really new too.

Any location in surrounding states of Melaka would be nice.
Minimal cost would be appreciated.

If you want to go for a camping trip, preferable to go somewhere which is safe. Lata Hammers aint save with lots of people died there before. Do not judge the waterfall by the picture as the waterfall can be as deep as 30 ft.

I have to agree with Aidono on this.
With the current weather, Hammers can be quite dangerous. Not to mention if you camp over the other side and if the water risers, you may not be able to cross back.
Perhaps wait for the weather to be back to normal before going camping there.

And yes, Hammers has claimed lives before. Be very careful.

Keong, you still able to camp there even the water rises during this season (of course not recommended). Once you get down from the slope, move back downwards where all the rocks are and you are able to cross the stream easily. If not, you are asking for trouble as the sand make things unpredictable making you wonder stepping 3ft on the water to a sudden 10ft and so on. Water current are quite strong at Lata Hammer so always beware of that. Do not attempt to go to the rock where a Malaysian flag stuck there unless you think you are a good swimmer.

P/s: Lata Hammer or more known as Lata Perting to some others have an upper fall smile.gif

Hi Aidono...thank you for your comments.

However, I would say that if water rises up stream, the speed and strength of water currents downstream grows exponentially as well.

And when it comes to water based activities, even the greatest swimmer can drown. There are many other factors that can cause a person to drown than just swimming capability. At rivers, waterfalls etc, there are foot entrapment, undercurrent etc. Knowing how to swim helps but taking the extra precautions (rescue aids) may make all the difference.

I would say for Lata Hammers/ Perting, if you wish to go, contact the local people there. There is a camp operator there. They are currently on FB at the below link.

http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=341898465652

They do training, camps etc there and I reckon they would probably be your best bet in getting good, reliable advise. They also do employ local Orang Asli to guide people into the jungle and rivers in that area.
Their prices are reasonable.

Have a good trip!

Greeting human,
Im a working person seeking for an activity during weekend especially related to the nature.
I lived in Shah Alam, aged 26, friendly & Single.
I was wondering if people in lowyat.net are interested in jungle trekking.
If there's a group of kaki trekking or any sort of nature activity kaki please let me know.
I would love to join any group that welcome me.

If missed something here, please do contact me at ahmad at localhost.my or 01Seven 2931521 tq =)

Please refer yourself at Climbers Club. There might be people who are still active in jungle trekking.

Trying to find a campsite that can fill in around 35 person. Anyone without the crowd? Found only templer's park and Kanching Falls. Will it be crowded in Kanching Falls?

I think the base of Gunung Nuang in Ulu Pangsoon, Hulu Langat is suitable. It is quite near the city near Kajang and the river is cooling and drinkable after boiling and the campsites realtively safe within the forestry station. Sore point is you got to hike 5 kilometers to the camp site but parking facilities is good. For those fitter campers can hike up Gunung Nuang. I had an experience when I didn't turn up after the planned time that I was supposed to leave, the Penghulu came with a few guys on motorcycles to look for you. You have to register yourself at the Forestry Ranger station. icon_rolleyes.gif

It is a good place to camp for sure but the thing is they will be pitching their tent all around within a 500m radius and that place is pack with people during the weekend these days.

If you need any advice on hiking related, feel free to post your inquires at:-

http://forum.lowyat.net/topic/264114

I, myself start from a beginner but the rating for each area really depends on individual. For example, Gunung Nuang some rate as 5/5, but myself rate it as 1.5-2/5. Regardless what, just enjoy the hike and make sure no littering around smile.gif

Just wandering if they are any kids like me, going 17 in the year 2012 who wants to have some serious fun but whenever they call their friends to come with them, they friend's can only say " lazy and too expensive" even if its once a year. So yea, anybody wanna try some extreme sports?? Maybe, rock climbing? mounting climbing? Anything.. Camping, Hiking, Kayaking. Everything. So yea, i just wanna get to know you and hopefully we can be friends. And whenever there's an extreme sports event to go, maybe once a month we can go mountain climbing, we can always stick to each other smile.gif So.. YEAP! My name is Ray smile.gif

Meetup.com is just a site for hikers to meet and and to plan to hike in a group. They are not profit orientated and do not receive any fees for assisting interested hikers to hike. They are actually helping out groups to hike for safety purposes and also to let hikers alike to meetup and create their own groups and for newcomers to join the hikes done by the others. You can actually suggest or organise your own hikes and post your plans there so others can join you. They are not a paid guided tour or something. I think co-organizers in the group deserved to be praised for doing it for free.

Can you explain more on your horrible experience? hmm.gif

I am interested to do this climbathon,

it starts from Hutan Lipur Gunung Datuk, to Puncak Gunung Datuk, Gunung Rembau, Gunung Gagak and back. Anyone know the difficulties in doing these hills?

Cut off time is 5 hours, it's problematic to find lodging place in pedas either

I am not really into climbathon but if not mistaken there are a number of series (4 if not mistaken - Gunung Angsi and Gunung Tampin are part it).

Gunung Rembau and Gunung Gagak are for certain chosen categories.

I am interested to know the distance apart of them, and difficulties for them. 5 hours return is not an easy time if it's a very technical climb (I did Mulu Pinnacles and it's not very easy at all)

They already separate by categories.

Category:
Men Open (22-39 years)
Women Open (22 years and above)
Men Veteran (40 years and above)
Men Junior (18-21 years)
Women Junior (18-21 years)
School Boys (13-17 years)
School Girls (13-17 years)

Distance:
Men open - 16km
Women open and Men Veteran - 11km
Junior and School - 8km

16km - 5 hours relatively moderate. It ain't going to be like Pinnacles/ Kinabalu. Best of luck ya. wink.gif

It should be in the same forest reserve area but the common one would be Gunung Datuk. Two ways would be around 8km and average time would be around 3.5 hours.

Looks like it's 16k, and the furthest and lowest peak among all category


Added on January 17, 2012, 9:28 am Any regular kaki here?

Where is the popular hiking trail around klang valley?
1) Bukit Saga (my training spot)
2) Broga (too crowded IMO)
3) Gasing - never been before
4) Bukit Tabur - would want to go again, only done once
5) Gunung Nuang / Camp Pacat - Never did but interested to do at least once
6) Templer park - if you consider that as hike it's quite nice actually
7) any other?

aiyo, orang bandar attitude. what u expect? 5 star service meh. the fun about this is unexpected event that call for everyone to find a solution , not just pointing finger to the leader. u could do something but u did not speak up and a experience hiker wouldnt want someone like this who have higher expectation . if he can't lead why not take up to him and once finish the hike, stay where it is rather than ranting your experience here.

If you love cycling and have a GPS, you might want to venture into the oil palm plantation nearby.

I saw in Google Earth that on the right bottom corner there might be a place to hike called Bukit Subang. From the pictures, it doesn't looked that high (215 ft) and that guy more likely took the pictures from Bukit Subang residental area whereby they have two water tower at Jalan Metafasa U16/1.

I define hill/ mountains as hiking and waterfall as trekking.

Lata Hammer aka Lata Perting is quite a dangerous place. Underwater current + 20 ft pool.

There are too many mountains to be list down. If you are interested of any place you came across, feel free to ask smile.gif

If you are looking for a camp site without require any hiking - the best to look for would be the forest reserve area. You can try out those picnic area such as Sungai Gabai, Sungai Tekala, Sungai Congkak etc.

There are campsite at FRIM but you need to get their approval. Call their number and enquire 03 - 6279 7000

Camp on private land? Along the way to Gunung Nuang at Batu 18. You will pass by lots of private property where they provide space to camp.

Another famous place to look forward for would be at Kampung Kemensah, Ampang. Just a 10-15 minutes drive from Zoo Negara.

If you are looking for camping sites without hiking you can actually do that in Chamang waterfalls in Bentong. You can just camp beside the carpark which is just beside the river. laugh.gif There are also toilet and bathing facilities there. Just after Bentong town on the road to Raub, lookout on the left for Chamang and drive till the end.

Talking about Pahang, you can actually hire a 4WD to this wonderful waterfall called Lata Berembun at Raub, Pahang. The agency will provide for you the camping shelter and food arrangement if requested.

Might as well buy a durable tent from Coleman first unless you have good money to fork to an ultralight tent. Damage RM200++. You can head to Jusco Mid Valley or UFL at Bangsar (the same row as McDonald)

RM200+ is for coleman.
Ultralight costed much more than that. EG: a 2 man ultralight MSR hubba costs almost around RM1k. Whereas for Coleman, RM200+ can get you a 4 people tent.

If you're not pressed for time, you may try PM Keong and ask his opinion. He is one outdoor guru... smile.gif

Just noticed he no longer log in to LYN.
Anyway, this is facebook link where he help source for outdoor stuffs: https://www.facebook.com/ogmadmin
And this is blog: http://www.my-rainforest-adventures.com/


Anyway, if you're going somewhere with trees; may I suggest hammock camping instead if you're not bringing partners/families. Additional flysheet for a dry area.


Added on February 1, 2012, 9:18 pmHere is another outdoor store in SS2: http://mycorezone.com/ (price is steep because mostly expensive and branded)

There's 2 in Telawi Bangsar.
One is beside Mcdonald (can't recall the shop name), and hosted Dueter and Coleman Jusco and World Of Sport is selling consignment for them.
The other one is Yellowstone or better known as Lafuma. It's at the back facing the residential area.

This in Cheras has affordable stuffs:

Tearproof also housed some tents and sleeping bags besides backpacks.

Ultra light normally would be around RM1.2k. Coleman got few type of tents - personal preferance Sundome type 3 men tent. Weight not more than 2.5kg if not mistaken. Nowadays I am using fly, and ground. Paiseh paiseh.

Like what Boon stated in the earlier post - those are the place where you can get good hiking stuff. If you love Karrimor brand, head to Jusco 1 Utama. Forget their shop name but remember it is located at Subang Jaya.

Lata Perting got a campsite right beside the waterfall, but as I warned earlier please be careful when playing at that waterfall due to strong underwater current. You will need to cross the first river before jungle trek about 30-45 minutes before reaching a slope which head down. Once you reach the slope bottom, you will be able to see the waterfall on the left and you will need to cross for the second time to reach the campsite. Camp at the higher ground and not the lower. Can pitch quite a number of tents and hammocks.

Janda Baik - You can do Lata Chemperoh when you are on your way up to Gunung Nuang - if you intended to do. If to the waterfall, it will took you only 1.5-2 hours. Trek are quite muddy and infested with leeches. Carpark space are quite limited near to the first river bank crossing.

Just to let you know, the only campsite in Chilling is at the grounds of the Fisheries Department. It is only there they allow open fire and anything beyond the bridge(where the waterfall is), they do not allow open fire.

If you prefer waterfall campsites, Lata Naning in Bentong  thumbup.gif  Almost unreachable to those normal waterfall visitors. I will be going Lubuk Mecu and Lata Medang this weekend. Will post pictures of it for you.

Lata Naning can be reachable expecially for normal waterfall visitors. It is just the matter you can get used to long distance trekking. Lata Naning got two falls (I am referring to 50 - 100m height only).

Lata Medang also the same. Located at Kampung Pertak, KKB and got two falls. One you can enjoy the pool and the other you can't. One thing for sure, Lata Medang would be a great place to take photography if you are into one. Be aware that the route heading to Medang might have lots of snake sad.gif and durian smile.gif

As said previously, I did a trip with KL Hiking Group to Lata Medang and Lubuk Mecu. Too bad the weather was not really favourable and water a bit muddy due to the rain. It was a great hike anyway and we reached the first falls (Lata Medang) within 2 hours from the Kg.Pertak carpark. Another member cleared another path to the upper falls (Lubuk Mecu) and it was another few hundred meters climb and the gushing waterfalls was incredible! thumbup.gif

I doubt there are any establishments or individuals who rents camping equipments. There are afterall not expensive items. Maybe you can try booking trips with outdoor travel agents to try it out and if you are not gamed on trying pre-planned camping trips, a 2 man tent can be bought for just less than RM60 and a 4-man tent can be bought for a mere RM70. They are available in Mudah.my. Other than that stoves are personal choices. Like me I prefer the lighter self made alcohol stoves which is fuel by methylated spirits (easier to carry). Just youtube "alcohol stove" for instructions on how to make them. Then a pair of mess tins is available from Jusco for RM20. Sleeping bags or sleeping mat is a personal choice and some use both together for more comfort. Some use hammock. For a group of 4, they actually cost less than RM100 per person and I think it is easier to just buy them, don't you think so?

For a more practical trip just a ground sheet and a fly sheet, you can actually build yourself a tent. This can even house more people. Check it out in youtube, it can be rewarding and cheap. icon_rolleyes.gif

Ha,ha,ha. Chilling would be the safest place to camp because you will be setting up tent on the same compound as where the Fisheries Department chalets are. That's the only place you can set up camps. It's a heavily regulated place as it is a fish santuary (Kelah's). You can only go beyond that with permission (where the waterfall is). The chalets and the camping grounds is beside the river and guess what? It is ladies friendly too. There's bathing and toilet facilities too. Camping there is not really roughing it out. It's sometimes busy during weekends but mostly day trippers to the waterfall. Not many camp there though as you have to cross the river 6 times to reach the waterfall and you are not allowed to start an open fire or camp at the waterfall.


Added on February 28, 2012, 9:39 amHai, mountain trekkers! smile.gif

I have just got a quote from the guide for Mount Tahan. I am a slow trekker but dreamt of summitting G.Tahan but most of the times the schedule was more for the fitter climbers. So, I decided to organize a slower ascent from Merapoh which usually takes 5 days but I prolonged it to 7 days. To make the ascent more successful, the meals and tents are also provided by the guides and also we are also not required to carry them to the peak. This expedition will be easier although mentally we still need to be strong and we also have to be regular hikers and must be fit.

For those who are interested, please PM me for details. The minimum number required is 10, so places are limited. The cost for each person is RM1350.00 inclusive of guides, park fees, 2 days hostel accomodation (on arrival and also upon descending), all meals and camp. These 2 days accomodation are not included in the real climb so it is actually a 9 day holiday. PM me with your email add and I will firward the guides itinerary and also quote to you. icon_rolleyes.gif

I have always wanted to reached this magnificient peak but at the same time did not want to hamper others' effort as my fitness is in question. My main aim in this trip is to reach the peak and also to enjoy the multiple days camping. The forest reserve in that area and also the camping sites there are well known and used. This trip will accommodate those who are into nature photography too as the speed of the trek will be at a leisurely pace so you can take your time taking photos and will not slow down the whole group as we have all the time to summit. We will used the faster Taman Negara Sungai Relau, Merapoh route but spend a longer time ascending. The whole trip will take 7 days actual hike with another 2 days for rest at the hostel upon arrival and also after hike before departing. All the camps and meals ( I mean all 4 meals per day) are catered for and also carried by the guide's team. We only have to bring our personal snack and also our mat and sleeping bag. This way we only have to carry a smaller backpack making the trip much easier for us. The proposed itinerary are a follows as suggested by the registered guide. The guide has proposed an average 4 hours trekking per day but this timetable is for the seasoned and fitter hikers so for hikers like me, it would be an average of 6 to 7 hours daily with lots of time to rest in between. Most importantly, the aim is to reach the summit.

Day 00 - Arrival at Taman Negara Sungai Relau. Check into hostel and briefing by the guides and also last minute equipment check. Meals are on our own here.

Day 01 - 0830 hours. Registration and documentation process by Perhilitan (forestry dept). Depart by 4WD to Kuala Juram. Start hike and will push to Kem Kor (13.5 kms. + 750m asl) This is actually the longest hike per day for the whole duration but the gradient is easier.

Day 02 - Kem Kor to Kem Kubang (6 kms. + 1406m asl) Day 03 - Kem Kubang to Kem Botak (10 kms. + 1943m asl) Although the distance is 10 kms but there only less than 500 metrs ascent.

Day 04 - Kem Botak to Summit and descend back to Kem Bonsai. (2.4 kms. ascend to peak 2187m asl and 5.4 kms. descend back to Kem Bonsai 1705m asl))

Day 05 - Kem Bonsai back to Kem Kubang (7 kms.)

Day 06 - Kem Kubang back to Kem Kor (6 kms.)

Day 07 - Kem Kor back to Kuala Juram (13.5 kms.) Then ferried back by 4WD to Sungai Relau and check into hostel for a real bath and rest. Documentation and issuance of certificate. You can either depart or rest for another day before departing the next day.

The price quoted by the guide was RM1350 per pax for a minimum of 10 pax and max 12 pax. So, I will also limit the hikers to that number. The guide requires a 50% deposit and the balance 14 days before departure. If we have less RVSPs, we might scuttle the plan or we can re-negotiate with the guide, so this is a tentative suggestion. Please bear in mind, Perhilitan only allows 48 hikers at any one time in the forest reserve. If we can confirm earlier, we can confirm the date.

If you are interested, pls. RVSP in the following site.

I thought just better for non professional climber group to share light information on hiking trails or jungle trekking. I find climber groups are very professionals and talk of altitude and oxygen about their mountain trail. This is not but just a medium hike Bukit not gunung. If more hikers agree to open this new thread than we proceed or else let it sink at the bottom of the page. Tq

I have been joining groups from KL Hiking and Meeting since September last year. So far, have been to Saga Hill, Angsi, Datuk, Kutu, Nuang, Ulu Semangkok, Rajah, Broga and Tok Wan and for waterfalls to Lata Medang and Chilling. They are not hardcores and they also have simple hikes to Gasing Hill and Saga hills. There are also Gunung Tahan and Ulu Sepat trips. Join them and you will find a new group of friends and at all levels.

that's great ettige. i will find out bout the group . i had search for info about hiking group in lowyat and google search but very few talk about hiking activity. when we talk about hiking, the term means hiking the bukit right ? my objective is not to climb hill or go water rafting , canoe etc. it's not my ambition on camping trip as well because im too afraid of any encounter with wild animals like wild boar or tiger . so im not that adventurous person anymore unlike the younger generation. i just want to hike and sweat as a form of exercise. my first hike in selangor is bukit puchong yesterday and i find it good enough to make my shirts sweat. i will try again to go deeper because someone already mentioned about fine and tresspassing. i think i haven't reach that zone yet yesterday.

what are the tips when beginners joining any elite group for hiking? im sure the elite won't like newcomer to slow them down. when joining groups like that, it's best to train a little bit am i right?

2.busy your self helping others at camp site
3.manage your backpack as light as possible
4.completing your equipment (sleeping bag,dry sack,carry mat,clothes etc)

Yes, there's a camping spot in Medang but it's not big. It can fit maybe a group of 10 and off course you can improvise if the group is larger.
