Bagging It!

Mount Peninjau is an overlooked peak, especially given that it is the highest in the Meru Range. It can be hiked in around 6 hours total and makes a great half-day out in the Ipoh area – especially as there are views from the top. The main west coast toll road / expressway actually cuts through this mountain range between Ipoh and Kuala Kangsar, so it is certainly very accessible.

Practicalities

  • Getting there: On the edge of Ipoh.
  • Permits: coming soon.
  • Water sources: Unknown at present
  • Travel insurance: We recommend World Nomads insurance, which is designed for adventurous travellers with cover for overseas medical, evacuation, baggage and a range of adventure sports and activities including mountain hiking.
