We set off from Spore around 6am via private transport and reached the park HQ around 930pm. Journey time (including custom clearance) from Spore to park HQ was about 3.5 hrs. To save time, we ate sandwich in the mini-bus and didn't stop along the way for breakfast. Climb registration including safety briefing took about 30 min. We started the... More

Firstly, we went here a few years ago. It is about a 5-hour drive from KL to this place as the highways do not pass anywhere close to it. Local folklore has it that a a princess with magical powers who resided on the mountain. Try going to this park and I believe you will not regret it. Good exercise... More

Tangkak. The waterfalls are sparklingly majestic, ever animated, always there. Its beautly, what is sadly left of it, is forever marred with debris, plastic trash, discarded bottles - also always there! The lower reaches of the waterfall, where shallow pools draw bathers are the worst polluted. Upstream, is no better. As the water cascades down several breaks, the strangling trash... More

Let's begin with the fact thare are two entrances to the waterfall area. "Gate A" and "Gate B". Gate B is for the climbers who want to "summit" and I didn't take that route because, as mentioned by someone below you WILL need a guide. Gate A is for your ordinary Joe (or Jill) who wants to see a cool... More

I really like this view. It's been my favorite so far... But you need to hike half of the mountain in order to reach there (It took like half day) maybe a few hrs for pro... Another thing is that even u feel so tired hiking, once you reach the top and drink the water from the river, u feel... More

Admittedly this is very dangerous mountain and have a high level of difficulty if the hikers is unfit person. So need to have a... More

A big disappointment. There was none there to assist us so we just started walking. There was rubbish everywhere on the trail and no evidence of any upkeep. Considering we had to pay to get in the park we expected more
