gunung ledang hiker's trail (from Gate B)

Postby snail-works » Tue Mar 17, 2009 3:13 pm

Hikers had rated Gunung Ledang (Mount. Ophir) as the 6th difficult summit trails among Malaysia mountains. There's 4 trails can go up to the summit. Here's the hiker's trail from Gate B, Pusat Operasi Taman Negara Gunung Ledang. Total 8 checkpoints (CP) along the trail. The terrain before CP5 is quite gentle uphill. The KFC session is after CP6 up to CP 8 (summit) :mrgreen: ... Along the way there's ropes and ladders to assist. This is not a leisure jungle walk.

We have not much time to enjoy the scenery due to we were late to the trailhead. There's rule that if anybody cannot reach summit before 3.00pm, he/she must turn back from the point where he/she is. Hikers are not allowed to camp overnight in the park.

I hope next time i can have more time to explore the waterfalls and flora here.

(note : KFC = Killing Fitness Centre :mrgreen: )

Nice photos you captured there. The last time I climbed was like more than 20 years ago. Seems there is a operation point now which is a good thing, I think due to some lost trekkers. So is getting a guide a must now?
