Bagging It!

Gunung Gerah (the lowest of the ten main peaks in Peninsular Malaysia over 2,100 metres) is a remote and challenging mountain requiring serious planning and preparation. The usual trail starts from the same trailhead as the route to Gunung Ulu Sepat, and Gerah is usually bagged along with two lesser neighbouring tops, namely Gunung Bilah (2,077m) and Gunung Bieh (2,073m).

The trail leads via Camp Sungai Y, Permatang Camp, Mount Bongok, Camp Sungai Agek, Perodua Camp, Sarsi Camp and on to the ridge where the three peaks lie.

Most trekking groups will spread this over 3 or 4 days but the very enthusiastic and super-fit could complete it in 2 days with an early start and a late finish.
