Bagging It!

The extinct volcano of Gunung Kajang is the only significant mountain on the islands off Peninsular Malaysia’s east coast and is home to some endemic species. The most commonly-used trail starts in Kampung Paya and it takes around 5 hours to reach the peak. Most hikers start early and do this as a long day-hike, but camping at the summit is apparently also possible. There is another trail up from Kampung Juara.

There is apparently a metal pyramid at the summit but only very limited views due to the vegetation. Watch out for leeches on this trail.

Tioman island also has a couple of very interesting near-vertical cliffs known as Nenek Si-Mukut which look to be of real interest to rock climbers.


Getting there Most people take the ferry from Mersing to Tioman (which takes just under 2 hours), but there is also an airport on the island with occasional flights from KL.
Accommodation Plenty available to suit various budgets.
Permits There is a Tioman island fee and a Marine fee that all visitors must pay.
Water sources Unknown
Travel insurance 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.
