Gng Irau revisit




Last 2 weeks end was at Gunung Irau the highest moutain at Cameron Highlands next to Gunung Brinchang standing at 2,110 meters.. 

It's one of my favorite gunung to hike, with the cool and the beauty of the mossy forest and don't mind to be 'dirty' in view of the muddy trail.

Met Leng and group at the car park and started the hike at 8.30am . The trail to the summit start with the boardwalk about 400 meters before the Mossy Forest trail begin and will talk about 3km to reach the summit as 1 wak will take between 2.5 to 3.5 hours to complete.

If you are more adventure, from the peak, there's a trail lead to other mountains on the Yellow pass and exit at Simpang Pulai.

The next trip to Cameron Highlands date yet to be fixed will be at Gng Cantik , where I am planning to stay at the MNS Chalet in the middle of Boh Tea Plantation.

Lovely place to spend a night where the chalet are surrounded by tea plants.

Stay tune for this trip

Gng Rajah Bentong / Naning Waterfall (Chamang)



This Saturday Gng Rajah Bentong.

If you are free on that day and want to enjoy the cool water at Chamang – Naning Waterfall and evening have dinner at Bentong and also durians

Please see below details of hiking :

Those who keen to go to the peak, please be at the Chamang Waterfall Carpark latest by 6am, Kelly and Gang will start at 6am as they will be leaving from BU at 4.45am. 

I will start at 7.00 am and target Kem Hijau and back to Naning Waterfall for Lunch , at 2.00pm will start down to carpark. Those can go faster , you may be able to catch up Kelly’s group

How to go to Chamang Waterfall - Bentong

 After paying toll at Bentong exit along Karak Highway, exit at the second Bentong sign. Go straight for about 10km; passing by Bentong Town

Follow signboard Raub , you will pass the Bentong hospital on your left and you will see Chamang Waterfall sign (500m)  turn left and drive straight till the end along the way you will pass houses, Chamang

The Journey of Gng Rajah :-.

From car park to Hijau Campsite, the ascent is gradual and not too difficult; the toughness starts beyond Hijau Campsite.  This is logger  trails and no shed therefore it will be very hot on the way down.

The waterfall and pool near Naning Campsite is pleasant for enjoying a cool dip in the water amid the pristine water and white-washed huge rocks. An interesting observation:

Henceforth to Camp Hujau and the challenging begins  to the peak

Here is the timing (moderate pace from car park; 244 meters of elevation) for attempting the peak of Gunung Rajah / Kem Hijau / Naning Waterfall:

1.    Arriving at the end of earth-based road (start of jungle trail) from Car park  – 45 minutes to 1 hour
2.    Arriving at big stream crossing (the big rock – Sungai Y) – 1 hour to 1hr 30mins from end earth based road . Crossing the Sungai Y,  please see the water level , if fast flowing , PLEASE DO NOT CROSS and turn back ya  
3.    Arriving at Naning Campsite – 30 – 45 minutes
4.    Arriving at Hijau Campsite – 1 hour to 1 hour 30mins (1,039m)
5.    Arriving at Big Rocks area (require rope for ascent) – 1 hour to 1 hour 30 mins
6.    Final ascent to the peak – 30 minutes (1,685m)
