Best for hiking it tough and good for hikers to train their self. At peak the temperature is under 20 degree it's so freezing me. We can drink a water from the water falls. It's so freshing and many hikers get the water for drinks over there

The trail is long but rewarding, you will be satisfied if you reach the peak. My team made it from starting point(4.40am) to Lolo Camp(7.00am), then proceed to summit crossing Dataran Pacat(8.40am) and reach summit by 11.00am.Coming down was a big challenge too...especially when pain starting kicking in your knees. Be prepared to practiced hiking other hils or mountains 1000mtrs... More

Okay, be prepared for this hike. Gunung Nuang is tough and not for the beginners. Bring enough water with you to last the full day or some way to filter stream water along the way. We took 11.5 hours in total and started 7.30am for the hike. If it is a rainy day, the trail becomes a horrible mudslide and... More

It is almost 5,000 feet above sea-level and takes on average 2-3 hours to reach the summit. So come prepared. The recommendation is to always turn back and descend no matter where you are by 1 pm so that you'll be back when there's still daylight. The bonus is the waterfall you will pass through. Good place for a dip... More

1. Total climb distant is 12km (one way). 2. So it is another 12km to get back to base. 3. In total you will walk/climb 24KM. 4. 5 stages of climb. Stage 3 and 4 are the most difficult. 5. The climbing route is more difficult than mount kinabalu in Sabah.

Our first trekking to a 'mountain' category, after a few 'hill' climbs. Together with my 2 teenagers, we did not set specific target of how far we could go from the Hulu Langat start point. Reaching the Lolo Camp was an experience for us beginners, with total round trip of 4 hrs. We were properly geared, but a little short... More

Some say its the highest peak in Selangor. Gunung Nuang is accessible from 2 different states. One via Hulu Langat, Selangor and another access from Janda Baik, Pahang. Both route serves different harshness. I have to agree Hulu Langat trail is more challenging, a total hike of 21km (to and from summit) with about 10hours of hiking duration (doesn't apply... More

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
