After many year of postponement, finally in September 2016 managed to hike this mountain in the southern Johor. For me this was climb was a mental due to this hikes involves rock climbing many ladders before one can reach the peak. The hike started with a bit easy climb up the cemented stairs till CP1 and then CP2 was literally... More

I've been here twice and I have to say it's a great place to go to deal with the Malaysian heat. There are shaded waterfalls and streams. Can be a bit of a hike but you can go as far as you want. Some places do have more trash then others but overall not too dirty. Water was clean and... More

Being an occasional hiker, this was no easy feat. Moreover, i brought a friend whom was a total newbie, to hike up this mountain with me. It wasn't a very good decision. Nontheless, lots of fun and memories.

Gunung Ledang is well managed, one of the few in Malaysia with proper ranger station and guides. As a results the trek are quite clean. For nature and outdoor lovers, Ledang summit offers an amazing view, again not many Malaysia mt does (e.g. most G7 summit has terrible summit view XD) Have been climbing Ledang three times and it is...

Not much of a view throughout except at the summit. A good workout hiking up to the summit and coming down. Can be done in 1 day (8 hours)

Not as safe and not as picturesque as many other mountains in Malaysia. I would much prefer to climb those in East Malaysia, which have more challenge and a more breathtaking view at the summit.

Mount Ophir is known for its cool water fall. There are 3 levels where one can rest and take a dip comfortably - the obvious is the higher you go, the less people it is. But the climb, though easier due to pathway been build, it is quite taxing. But the journey self is well worth it and the destination,... More
