    Gunung Angsi (825m): Trans Hike via Ulu Bendul – Bukit Putus

    Gunung Angsi (825m), is located in Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia. Many people compare it to the other hike in Negeri Sembilan, Gunung Datuk (885m), as it is similar in height and in the same area. The good thing about Gunung Angsi is that it has 2 different trails to the summit. One can choose to ascend from either Ulu Bendul, or from Bukit Putus. This means that you can do a “trans hike”, or a loop, ascending from one trail and descending from the other. However, there is a 4 km distance between both trail-heads, so if you do a trans hike you would have to cross that distance! The trail…

    Broga Hill (400m): A Detailed Guide to Hiking Broga by Yourself

    Broga Hill (400m), also known as “Bukit Lalang” by the locals is located in Semenyih, Selangor, Malaysia, and just about 45 minutes away from Kuala Lumpur. It is an extremely popular weekend hike because of its panoramic view and various viewpoints (3 hilltops). This is especially so for most Malaysians, or for the urbanites who live in KL. For Singaporeans, it is a popular beginner sunrise hike, one that gives you a chance to see the “sea of clouds”. I honestly think the idea of seeing the “sea of clouds” is overrated. It is a beautiful sight for sure, but you see it in almost every hike in Asia. In…

    Gunung Lambak (510m): A Detailed Guide to Hiking Kluang’s Mountain

    Gunung Lambak (510m) is located in Kluang District, Johor, Malaysia, 2 hours from Singapore. It is another extremely popular hike in Malaysia for both locals and Singaporeans. It is free to hike with no logistical hassle, short in duration (~2h of hiking), has a variety of routes and also only a short distance from Singapore. Additionally, one can easily combine it with some famous Kluang coffee for a day trip from Singapore! Don’t be confused with Klang (which is much further away) However, the hike itself isn’t particularly spectacular. There isn’t much of a view at the top of the summit. It can also be quite confusing as there are…

    High Junk Peak: Short and Fun Day-Hike in Hong Kong!

    High Junk Peak (344m) has a weird but distinct English name and is one of the lesser known hikes in Hong Kong to foreigners (as compared to Dragon’s Back etc). It is also known as one of the 3 “treacherous peaks” or the easiest of the three sharpest peak in Hong Kong. The summit of High Junk Peak stands at 344m, which is actually just a hill if you think about it. The hike itself is reasonably short dayhike, achievable within 2 hours, and isn’t all that challenging. However, it is the highest accessible point on the Clear Water Bay Peninsula, overlooking the magnificent Clear Water Bay. The peak itself…
