Training @ Gunung Nuang Trail
Gunung Nuang was always a good training base for any event of personal achievement and measurement. Compare to other tougher mountain, this mountain always be the baseline. With the completion of Nuang hike, other hike was a just a boost of motivation and strength to carry on.
Training @ Gunung Nuang Trails
It was none of my preparation or little workout for my upcoming Gunung Rajah hike. It’s deeming to be tougher and a lot tougher than many would think. With one way of 16km distance, two way of 32km (day trip), what a great point to test my ability.
Hence, let’s the training get started in Gunung Nuang.
We started late because we know we came here for training. No way could we touch the peak from our 8am starting time. It must at least 2 hours earlier.
Limited parking near the toilet facilities … free to use
Not many hikers around and we hike all the way “Never Ending Road” ourselves. By a merely walk without looking into time versus distance, I took a look at every hut along this road, make a count as well.
Getting ready for training … her first timer
Walking distance kill a lot … mentally tough is required
Hut 1 … start counting hut by hut (newly renovated hut)
Hut 2 … a mere successful in pursue further
Hut 3 … just halfway only to Lolo Camp (KM 2.9)
A remarkable sign indicated we’ve to trek about 5.8km for this bumpy journey to reach Lolo Camp. This is called W3 (Buluh Akar).
Who wanted to find out what the rest of the name? Perhaps my next visit. LOLz.
W3 Check Point … 3rd hut out of 7 hut found along the way
Hut 4 … a short distance only to reach here
Hut 5 … complained how long to go, must be nearby
Terrible fallen bamboos … someone chopped it off to make a way
Else without chopping … ducking may be required
Hut 6 & 7 … the end of never ending trek, big relief
By the time we hit Lolo Camp, it was 10am. Our journey wasn’t tough but relaxes.
A peek into the water stream flowing down … the controller
River crossing … bamboo as a bridge (newly added)
Sun ray beautifies our training mode … as a reward
Camping area … nearby river as water source
Landscaping of the river … river crossing is required
Check-point of end of Lolo Camp trek … getting ready for tough ascend
Here it is … trek and gear up to Pacat Camp
Personal achievement … up to Pacat Camp
By the time we hit Pacat Camp, it was 12pm (lunch hour time).
We’d our lunch and YES, we called our hiking completed at this point.
We hiked down back to the base.
Sounds happy to end the training at Pacat Camp … enough for today’s training
By 4.15pm, our training at Nuang trail has been completed.
