I had two days off from flying and decided to go for a hiking trip in the mountains of Ulu Dungun. These two hills, Gunong Cemerong and Gunong Berembun are located in Pasir Raja area, a place I love to haunt for it's natural beauty.. It is also because I need to familarise myself with the trail as my friend Martin Lee and his gang and some of my gang will be coming over to the East Coast to climb these two mountains.I had lured two good old Hashers from my hash chapter to come along with me. Mr Rothman King Size and Mr Pretty Boy had taken the bait and I picked them up at 0600 hrs on Tuesday 21 Aug 2012 for the journey to Cemerong Waterfalls where the trail starts and ends.
This is Kem B. located only 2200 meters from the starting point. It took us about 2 hrs to reach here.
We were rewarded with a very beautiful river. The water here is crystal clear and it tastes very good.
After Kem B, the trail is more bearible.. not so steep. We had inadvently gone to the Gunong Cemerong trail but it does not matter as this trail is a loop and we will eventually get to both the peaks
Gunong Berembun is 1108 meters above sea level.
After crossing a few more streams we arrived at Langsir Waterfall. The view from here is majestic
There are prepared campsites at Langsir waterfall and if the trail is to be joyed at a leisure pace this is the place to camp.
This is the peak of Gunong Berumbun
For lunch we cooked instant mee with tuna and the meal ended with mushroom soup.
My recommendations for would be climbers...
Come prepared physically to enjoy the hike
Bring sufficient food and drinks otherwise the stream water is very good too
Share a small camping stove for every few climbers.Hot food is good for your morale!
Shoes are very important. Wear proper shoes.
Carry a GOOD MORNING towel to wipe your sweat.
Bring along your hand phone. There is good reception all along the way
Walk light. Carry only essential items otherwise you will be carrying dead weight
Overall this is a very good trail. I will be going back for another trip soon.
