This 20 km climb called Gunung Nuang hike can be a stepping stone or training ground if one wants to hike/climb any other higher mountains in Malaysia. It may be unforgiving terrain for most first time average experience hikers. With a height of approximately 1498m high (above sea level), this mountain is good for training purpose if one aim to...

Had my 1st taste of the Hulu Langat area jungle only recently eventhough I live nearby. One doesn't really to be fit to do the hiking to Kem Lolo. The equivalent of Laban Rata to Mount Kinabalu. The hike is not too bad for a beginner. Proper clothing/shoes is a must. Hiking stick/pole is optional but can be really helpful.... More

It was all in a 20km hike up and down the mountain. It was good exercise and I had an amazing experience. This hike is for people who can walk uphill about 10kms and down another 10kms. Challenging hike.

The trail start with cement road which is easy, and it getting harder once reach the Camp Solo (6km). Camp Solo is a location that where people camping and spending night here, the waterfall is chill and refreshing. The hike continue to get harder once passing the Camp Solo, it take us 2 hours and 30 minutes to reach Pacat,... More

It has two routes. One from Janda Baik and another one from Ulu Langat. Ulu langat trek is more challenging. Some part requires you to climb like rock climbing. I used Ulu Langat trail. The temperature at the top is around 15-20 Degree. There are 3 check points before the peak. Kem Lolo Kem Pacat Kem Pengasih (Fake Peak) Puncak... More

Its the highest mount in Selangor. 1,439m and my first mount hike. Though we pick Janda Baik route which is easier than the ulu langat route, its still a painstaking journey to reach the peak! 60-70% of the route is not flat and probably more than 60 degrees. Lucky for us, it didn't rain that day because the track was... More

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
