  1. The trek to gunung Mugajah (aka gunung Kurik) starts in desa Uring (kecamatan Pining), approx. 2 hour drive from Blangkejeren.The trek takes approx. 14 days in total. Its a challenging but yet rewarding trek. If you can not make the ascent to gunung Mugajah, you can hike to gunung Lembu instead. Gunung Lembu is about 3000 m high too.
