Gunung Nuang (Mount Nuang – 1493 m | 4898 ft) is the highest mountain in Selangor. The mount draws through 3 states of Selangor, Negeri Sembilan and Pahang. There are three ways to the top, in which I took the route from Hulu Langat, Lembah Pangsoon.

Gunung Nuang @ Hulu Langat

A second attempt to Gunung Nuang has proven to be successful. Can you believe it? Yes. My first attempt 3 years ago was stuck at Kem Lolo. I developed a phobia and refused to climb this mountain after that. Only after I successfully completed Mount KK and Mulu Pinnacles, I was confident enough to accept the challenge and I vowed to overcome this phobia.

Gunung Nuang is touted as very difficult mountain by many hikers. No doubt is a good to train for Gunung Kinabalu and Gunung Tahan. Our expedition took about 13 hours in total with 4 hours reach to the top from base.

I followed my hiking guru, Alvin (which he had completed many mountains locally) to conquer Gunung Nuang. He guided a group of people and we exchanged hill-hiking information and experiences.
