Bagging It!

Gunung Yong Yap is considered to be one of the tougher treks in Peninsular Malaysia, with leeches, sandflies and even the vague possibility of Malayan tigers! There are also several river crossings.

Most hikers require a minimum of 2 full days and 1 night and given that you need a 4WD to reach the trailhead it makes sense to go with a fairly large group. One route starts at an Orang Asli village at Kuala Mu. The other route is from Pos Brooke, 25m from Kampung Raja, Cameron Highlands. Both trails take about the same amount of time but the latter starts at a higher elevation so it considered slightly easier.

The mountain can also be combined with Tok Nenek and Gunung Bubu (not the separate mountain range) but this requires several days.
