Gunung Nuang

Trail running and trekking at Gunung Nuang on Saturday, 9 Jan 2016 ... we were surprised that the trails were dry despite the daily evening rain in Kuala Lumpur. It was a sunny morning with the blue and cloudless sky. After Kem Lolo heading towards Kem Pacat, it was windy and dry, a sign that Chinese New Year is around the corner. With the sweat and breeze, it was very cooling; and Dphany and Lana even have to put on the windbreakers at Kem Pacat. The next best thing was that there was not a single leech!

Eric Wong, Khoo Ban Yu and a few aspired to go the peak, while LimHY would target to do Kem Pacat twice (from car park); the rest would just arrived at Kem Pact and spent much time relaxing in the stream at Kem Lolo.

After a few trail running events having been staged at Gunung Nuang, the trails were wide and clear - good for all difficult levels of training. I saw not less than 10 trail runners having their training there in solo.
