Gunung Liang Hike 2022

Hiking Gunung Liang on 17 Sept 2022  ... We started the hike at 6am and only return to trail head after 12 hours. This is a tough mountain to tackle, tougher than hiking Gunung Nuang peak. It was a gloomy day but only started to drizzle at around 5pm after we have crossed the river at Lubuk Hantu campsite while returning to the trail head. Surprisingly, there was not a single leech on the trails, especially the first part (from trail head to Lubuk Hantu campsite). The first part of the trails is clear and wide.

I have a packet of Kembara outdoor meal - Chicken Masak Merah with Tomato Rice - balance from the Gunung Ledang hike. For a change, instead of eating buns at the peak, this time, I have a delicious meal.

My previous hike at G. Liang was on 10 Oct 2017, a lapse of 5 years. During that time, it was raining almost the whole day. When returning to the river crossing at Lubuk Hantu, the water level rose and we were stuck for almost 2 hours. Do click here for the posting (with timing, trailhead GPS, survival tips for crossing river).

Crossing this river is risky especially when the water level rises

From 7/E campsite to the peak, a lot of muddy trail just like the condition above
