There are two different routes to climb up Gunung Nuang (1493m/4898ft) - one is via Pangsun, Hulu Langat and another one is via Janda Baik, Pahang. I have never tried Janda Baik... read more

There are two different routes to climb up Gunung Nuang (1493m/4898ft) - one is via Pangsun, Hulu Langat and another one is via Janda Baik, Pahang. I have never tried Janda Baik route before, so not much to tell about that route. If you're coming from Pangsun, do not worry about where to park your cars as there are sufficient... More

If you plan for a day hike, starting the journey as early as 8am is recommended. Register and pay a min fee (RM1-3?) at the Ranger.The trail is tough for beginner and moderate for experienced hikers if you are planning for a day hike. Hence, it is suggested to camp for beginners unless you have the will and determination. Ascending... More

Gunung Nuang is not in Petaling Jaya. There are two entrance to go to Gunung Nuang, the most popular and quite far is from Sungai Congkak, Ulu Langat, Selangor and the other entrance, shorter distance is from Janda Baik, Pahang. To go to Janda Baik from KL Sentral about 50-60km and 30-40km to Sg Congkak, Ulu Langat. Recently, for the... More

I am not a regular mountain climber to begin with. We started our journey as early as 0630am and reach back at the parking lot at 730pm. So it might be useful to bring a torch light. We were not rushing to climb up, even though there were alot of people were literally running. but take your time, but don't... More

A grp of us chartered a mini-bus to Gunung Nuang. We left singapore after midnight and reach the base camp around 7 plus. At 1490m, Nuang is the highest mountain in Selangor. The first part of the trail which ends at Camp is 5-6 km long and we took about 1hr 45 min to complete. This section is an easy... More

Selangor's highest peak, 1492m, ranking 5th toughest hiking in Malaysia. It's a good training ground for beginner, you have to really try it and feel it, but just don't under-estimated. It would be very easy if you are good in fitness for both strength and endurance, otherwise it would be a hell to you. From kem lolo to kem pacat,... More

A popular location for hikers, with minimum steeps. Paths are wide so it's almost impossible to get lost. After registering at the rangers' office, it's a 3-4 hours hike up the top. After passing a damn, there's a popular camp site. Could be packed with campers during school holidays, public holidays and weekend, but you get your distance. Pack with... More

Cool and fresh. It's a challenging mountain to hike. Good for practices before climbing Gunung Tahan.
