Gunung Korbu

The second highest peak in West Malaysia, standing at 2183 meters, it is only 4 meters fall short of Gunung Tahan. This mountain can be reached from the town of Tanjong Rambutan, near Ipoh. There are two routes to the summit, one by the logging road and the other by the jungle trail, both need two days to ascent. Going by the logging road is much easier but can be slippery when coming down. First day of the trek will be on deserted logging road and on the second day of the ascent will be montane forest all the way to the top. During clear day one will be able to see the Kinta valley, where Ipoh is. Bingtang and Kledang range towards the west can also be clearly seen. Adequate fitness is required but with training will be better.

Gunung Ledang

The classical climb. One of the most challenging among the smaller mountains. Besides Sagil trail, the popular ascent route, there is another ascent route by the Asahan, which is on the northwest of the mountain. At 1276 m, the highest point in Johor, one can see the town and Straits of Malacca. Along the way up to the base camp are series of impressive waterfalls and cascades that you will not missed plus the change from tropical rainforest to montane forest, often shrouded by clouds in the afternoon, where you experience the air of coolness and tranquillity.
