Bagging It!

Gunung Rembau is the highest part of the range of which the popular Gunung Datuk ( approximately 700m) is a part. Gunung Datuk can be hiked in about 2 hours from the carpark and the summit is crowned with some large boulders meaning there is a great view in clear weather. To continue to the true highpoint of the range takes about another two hours or so through forest. There is no view at the top of Rembau, but a sign to assure you that you have reached the summit!

You can make a full traverse of a total of four peaks – a trek known by local hikers as Trans Naning – by continuing to Gunung Gagak (807m) and Gunung Tampin north and south (726m and 728m respectively) before dropping down via Bukit Tampin (560m) where there is a telecommunications tower and Tampin Recreational Forest into the town of Tampin where there is a railway station. This is about 21km in total and can obviously be done in the opposite direction too.

Practicalities

Getting there Rembau or Tampin / Pulau Sebang is the closest train station but at present the Rembau station does not appear to be active.  For those heading south from KLIA, Nilai is the closest station to the Airport but is seemingly not used for intercity. Consider using Kajang or Seremban stations rather than heading into KL city first. There is a night train which leaves Kajang at around 0040 and arrives in Tampin / Pulau Sebang around 0200 (in 2018).
Accommodation Several hotels available in Tampin.
Permits coming soon.
