Bagging It!

This mountain is rather remote and is located in Hutan Belum. Orang Asli villages are common here. Most people take a 4WD from the town of Lasah to Kampung Lerlar (480m). This usually takes around 2.5 hours. From here it is a 4 hour hike to Kampung Lengweng (1,050m) which is, for most hikers, the basecamp. This is a very small hamlet with just a handful of Orang Asli remaining rather than moving down to Kampung Lerlar.

It takes most groups 3 days and 2 nights to complete this trek, and some combine it with the slightly higher Gunung Chamah (requiring around 5 days and 4 nights in total).
