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.

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.

Like : Its quite challenging tracks & journey up to the peak. Its raining heavily when coming down from the peak. Wet condition is expected. Disliked : Heavy rain & no water at the top. Need to save some. Need to rethink twice if want to go up again next time. :)

It is actually located in the district of Hulu Langat,Selangor and not in Petaling Jaya bypassing a small town called Pangsun,spacious car park.Actual coordinates N 03.21717 E 101.88330,then you may have to trek for an approximately 6 hours realistically,along the way you may enjoy the lush greeneries of the equatorial forest,its very humid during daytime.Then you'll experience the small dam...
