A great site for hiking and trail running. It is the highest peak in Selangor and offers great view on a clear day.

Nuang is in my view a challenging track. The track takes 3 hours for superly fit, 4.5 hours with regular breaks and 6 hours for most people. There will be no shops at the beginning of the track. I advise those coming from Cheras, stop at batu 12 Hulu langat where there is a PETRONAS station to buy refreshments and... 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

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
