Gunung Belumut is located in the Hutan Lipur Gunung Lumut (Mount Belumut Recreational Forest) and is a dayhike, requiring about 4 hours up and 3 hours back down. There are 3 checkpoints on the way to the peak and several water sources. It is popular with hikers from Singapore.
||It is located near Kluang and could even be hiked as a day-trip from Singapore.
||A real hassle. You need a permit from Johor Forestry (RM150 per group) and to get a nominal roll stamped at Kampung Gajah Police Station. Guide obligatory – over RM100 total for group.
||Available at several pints on the trail but it is recommended you take your own bottled water.
||We recommend World Nomads insurance, which is designed for adventurous travellers with cover for overseas medical, evacuation, baggage and a range of adventure sports and activities including mountain hiking.
