Gunung Nuang via Janda Baik

The team went for a trekking trip this morning, Sunday 23 May 2010. Lead by Chiew Hong and Weng -- both seasoned trekkers -- the team consists of 31 members trekking up Gunung Nuang via Janda Baik (Kampung Bukit Tinggi, Karak Highways).

Crossing the first stream. In this trek, the team has to cross two streams

Passing by an orchard ... in July, during the durian season, trekking here would be much more exciting

Certain stretch is full of over-grown lalang

Clear blue sky -- superb day for trekking; however, it was raining and gloomy almost the whole of yesterday. Yours truly (KC) is in the photo.

The peak with a view - Right in the middle is Genting Highlands

Refreshment break at the peak of Gunung Nuang. One way up is three hours, which is much easier as compared to starting from Pangsoon of Ulu Langat (that requires 5.5 hours)

Anti-leeches socks

Messy situation -- the full-blown leech is salt-laden for ease in removal. Many leeches in this trail !! When the shoes were removed, the socks of this trekker was full of blood.
