Group of 5 from Australia visiting Malaysia for leisure completed the Dragonback Trekk. Booking with Amos/Kevin was easy and fuss free. Amos out guide for the trek picked us all up in a nice MPV and drove us to the site.
After a quick debriefing we embarked on what would be a challenging but stimulating climb. Some fitness would be recommended but the guides are very helpful and work at individual participants pace. Amos brought along his camera and took many wonderful shots of the group in action. A extra special touch was the fruit and 100plus (like gatorade) which he brought along for the group.
We reached the peak of the 1st ridge 50minutes in. The view is SPECTACULAR. who would have thought it possible so close to the hussle and bussle of KL. Some would say it was enlightening! Because we were quite quick, Amos did a little bit extra of the trek for free.
Once we descended the Trek Amos took us to a local eatery (Mamak) which was delicious - what a way to finish the first half of the day.
Just want to say, Amos you definitely deserve all the credit tripit gives. An absolutely wonderful experience and you played a major part in it. Can not wait to come back to KL to embark on other adventures with you and your team.

My wife and I wanted to try something new in KL and we found about Open Sky Unlimited from tripadvisor. We called them and scheduled our trekking trip on the 24th Jan 2013. We chose the easiest package "DragonBack Discovery Trek" since we're beginners. We were picked up on time by our professional, helpful and cheerful guide Kevin. We especially enjoyed the trip with him because he would give us breaks in between to enjoy the nature surrounding us and the amazing scenery up top! He was so helpful when it came to trekking and climbing as he kept giving us all kinds of advice and information on how to deal with the terrain.
This was definitely the best activity we done in KL and it's definitely not going to be the last time we try it. Next time we're going for a longer trek, can't wait!!

My husband and I did the Dragon Back Scenic Hike with Kevin as our guide and it was an unforgettable experience. Kevin was very accommodating through emails and gave us clear instructions on what to bring with us. He picked us up on time from our hotel and we had a quick bathroom stop and then headed out. He gave us a good background about the area and the city which we enjoyed very much. Kevin was very knowledgeable about the area and how to perserve the nature.

When we started the hike, he gave us gloves and was very helpful throughout. You will definitely need his help and guidance while climbing up some parts. Throughout the hike, he took great pictures of us with the view behind us. When we got to the top he provided us with snacks and some energy drink as a boost.
After the hike he took us to a great little Indian/Malay Restaurant in town and ordered a great brunch with delicious fresh juice. He then drove us back to our hotel.

We very much appreciated that everything was provided to us throughout the trip in the price listed on his website. He didn't try to add more to the price or rip us off throughout the trip. He was very accommodating and helpful. It was very enjoyable and the best thing we did on our honeymoon. When we arrived home we found his pictures in our inbox.

It was a great experience. I recommend this for everyone and anyone. He has different trails that suit families as well. If given the chance we would do this again and again.

The Dragon Mountain trek was my favorite part of KL! Our guide Amos was very professional and was such a pleasure to have along for the hike. He picked us up on time at our hotel and made sure we were comfortable the whole day. The hike itself was not too strenuous but you get pretty dirty and sweaty by the end of the morning.This was a great way to get out of KL, see some fantastic city and nature views, spend time with down to earth KL locals, while not having to commit to a full day activity. We were back at the hotel by 1 PM with a full belly from a tasty lunch and some tropical fruit tastings. I would highly recommend this activity to anyone visiting KL who wants a sense of nature and adventure!

We did the camping trek. I can't say the camping was my favorite thing in the world - we all got leeches, it was a little boring and uncomfortable, there was trash from other people all over - BUT the staff were quick to answer emails and calls, they were flexible, they were punctual, they were generous, they were very kind and informative, and were great to hike with. Very cool guys running their own business after leaving boring desk jobs. They speak perfect English. They take you to great restaurants before and after the camping. Do the camping if you really like roughing it, but next time I think I would just do the trekking.
