Day 1: Declaration and inspection of personal items at Park Office; hike to Pasir Panjang campsite at 11am , journey took 2 hr 15 min; visit Twin Waterfall at 4pm. 

Day 2: Hike to Gunung Ledang Peak at 8:30am, lunch is Kembara meal package (just need 200cc of water to heat up the food); return to campsite at 3:30pm;

Taking a breather at Check-Point #1

Day 3: Leave campsite at 10am; return to trailhead Park Office at 12 noon; inspection and tallying of personal items; have sumptuous lunch in Tangkak town.

The campsite is superb: flat and bright, complete with clean toilet and tap water from the adjacent stream; the Kolam Gajah rapid, just 50 meters away from campsite, is enjoyable for bathing at end of day.

This kolam (pond) is huge, and maybe elephants were sighted here last time; hence, the name, Kolam Gajah

Team Lead = Chan How Nean.

Chee Eng Hooi (organizer) = 18.5kg;

The famous rope climb area ... the correct method is to climb with the rope is in between the legs.
