A year after my success in conquered legendary Gunung Datuk, I’m UP to the top mountain again! It’s different expectation after I’ve successfully completed few major tough mountains since a year.
Expedition to Gunung Datuk @ Rembau
17 November 2010
Many people around me talking about this mountain whereas it was well known as good training ground for Mt Kinabalu. Many hikers (beginner) would like to give a try here.
Facilities for car park was well built compare to last year. However, toilet & shower was still a big disappointment because water tap is not working for most and dirty. But it was FREE … what to do?
Tough is moderate, most likely can be reach the top within 2 hours plus.
After completed few mountains in a row, I found that Gunung Angsi is one of the easiest mountain to trek. The reason why I say so is because the well-developed trail and good direction given along the route, made easy for everyone to hike, even for beginner.

Unlike many mountain which was crowded with human long queue in the jungle, this mountain offered much better nature disposition and peacefulness.
Located at Kuala Pilah, Negeri Sembilan, the real entrance of Mount Angsi trekking is actually started from Ulu Bendol Recreational Park. However, I was brought via another entrance called Bukit Putus.
With height of 825 meter (2,702 feet), it took me about 3 hours to reach the peak. The peak offered a good view surrounding and can view few popular mountains from far.
Gunung Angsi, an easy mountain by information source, in fact a challenging place for trekkers who underestimate its toughness side.
A new expedition for mountain hiking came with a misty, windy and coolie at Gunung GAP & Ulu Semangkok at start of the year 2011. Two mountains conquered in one trail made my checklist go faster.

These mountains are located at Fraser Hill and required no longer than a day to complete it. This trip was organized by the famous hiker cum recce master for us to have chance to explore the serenity of the mountains at the same time testing our passion for hiking.
As a dedicated hiker of myself this year, I put a line of mountains list to be completed by year 2011. And gratefully, it was started with awesome highlands weather. Never in my hiking life, was the weather so cooling, misty and windy. Tiredness or exhausting was out of my sight for 6 hours hiking in total.
Saga Hill is not a stranger to many hikers. In fact, this place was used as training base for Mount KK. The slope, terrain and steepness are what they’re looking for.
Bukit Saga (Saga Hill) Weekend Hiking
Located merely lesser than 2km from my house, this round was my third hike in here. A revisited trip has striker my interest further towards Bukit Saga. Indeed, a hill with many different routes leading to the peak and many stations to stop by for a complete journey.
I’ve yet to explore via Cheras Awana, mainly from Taman Saga entrance. There is limited parking space in playground field. Many advise to park at shop lot parking at Jalan Saga 20 and walk about 5 min to the starting point.
For most of the casual hikers, this hill is seems to be less known to them. An exception for those who like to recce to any kind of jungle. The actual trail leads to the summit was kinda short but not as easy as expected.

The terrain are consists of loose soils, a bit of rock climb and jungle trekking. The starting point is all about rock ascends. A beirut is marked as the summit of the hill. Supposedly, the hill offers a 270 degrees panoramic view, but those overgrown trees have blocked the surrounding from being seen.
If the skies are clear, we will able see Genting Highlands from the beirut. To make it interesting, few of us actually climbed up to the beirut for better view.
