Another Jelebu gem, Bukit Batu Beras is a short and not too difficult hike near the Pahang border, with a panoramic viewpoint that you don’t need to summit to enjoy.
It’s only 2 weeks into 2019, but this could be my favourite hike of the year. Short and easy, it’s Negeri Sembilan’s answer to Bukit Tabur, with none of the dangerous climbing and all of the views.
Just as I’m reading that Scottish doctors are prescribing nature walks to a treat chronic illness, a doctor’s desire to help his patients here in Malaysia has resulted in a series of short trails in Nilai that have been embraced by all, young, old, healthy and recovering.
You have to be nuts to drive 2 hours, then hike another 2 just to see a rock, right?
If you’re passing Seremban at the weekend, make a detour for some home-cooked Nogori food and luscious cakes whipped up by Malaysia’s first local Masterchef winner, at this friendly family-run kitchen. Sodap!
Tanjung Tuan. You’ve probably heard of it. And if you’ve travelled from the South by plane you’ve probably flown over it. But a lighthouse on a hill hardly sounds reason enough to get in your car, right? Then what about deserted beaches, forest trails and an annual spectacle that attracts nature lovers from across the region. Yes, that’s more like it. Here are 6 reasons why you should hit up Tanjung Tuan.
For me, hiking is about the journey rather than the destination, and the reward is in summiting or completing the journey. But that’s not true of every hiker. I’ve plenty of hiking buddies who won’t sweat it out for anything less than a peak with a view from the top. If that sounds like you, then set your Waze for PD and make towards Bukit Batu Putih.
