Bagging It!

It takes most fit hikers about 5 hours to reach the peak, and a little less to descend. The trail length is around 9km one way. The starting elevation is very low, so you need to ascend around 1,730m and back down again, making this a very strenuous undertaking, especially if you plan to do it in one long day.

The trail leads via Lubuk Hantu campsite and river (after 1 hour), Camp 7-E / 7-Eleven (after 3.5 hours total). Liang Barat (Liang West) is just a couple of feet less high than Liang Timur (East) and is only 5 minutes further beyond the summit of Liang Timur.
