Ever since I had taken the funicular train up Penang Hill, I had harboured the ambition to hike my way to the top. On a recent visit, that’s what I did.
I can’t remember the last time I went for a CAT Walk as a volunteer – I had signed up to be a CAT Walk leader almost immediately after my first in 2013. But with me about to pick up my volunteering game and start leading after a 10 month hiatus, I needed to get back in the field.
The sun is shining, the wind is blowing…. So what are you doing indoors? Get outdoors and get on top of the world. Here are 8 great Malaysian mountain hikes from easy to tough that you can complete in a day.
Since my Gunung Kinabalu climb was off, and the week was wide open, Matt decided to whisk me off to the wonderful wilds of The Dusun for a night.
I felt like a lapsed mountain bagger. It was mid-February and my first mountain hike seemed late in the new year. Better late than never I guess. Located in Rembau in Negeri Sembilan, Gunung Datuk is 870 metres tall, which makes it a hill rather than a mountain. But after more than a two months away, it felt every inch the mountain.
