Pine Tree Trail Trekking

The Rinjani Trekking Team and friends went for a group training at Pine Tree Trail, and put up a night in the cosy setting of RHB Bank Bungalow, Fraser's Hill on 18 April 2015. 

Started at the trailhead at 10:15 a.m., the team trekked to the peak steadily in a group while waiting for the slower team members. The team arrived at the peak at 1:00 p.m. After taking a breather, we proceeded to Twin Peak - the second peak. By 2:30p.m., the team descended the mountain. The faster team members returned to trailhead by 5:00 p.m. while the slowest ones emerged at 6:00p.m.

The weather was perfect for the trekking trip with overcast sky amidst a sunny day. A few days preceding the trekking trip, the weather was sunny and hot; but on the eve, it was raining quite heavily thereby provided a little cooling effect.

The next day, the team went to Chiling Waterfall en route back to Kuala Lumpur. It was a total different outings compared to the day before. We walked for more than an hour, crossing the same river in knee-deep water six times in order to arrive at the waterfall. It was really nice to be able to relax in the cold water. By the time we arrived at Hulu Yam Lama for meal, it was almost 5:00 p.m. – for lunch. 

The Team shall be trekking at Mount Rinjani, Lombok in mid-May 2015.
