Gunung Rajah Day Trip aka trail run training 27/11/2011



Last week was a great weekend where my hiking buddy and I decided to do something out of ordinary. We try to do a trail run at gunung rajah. Usually Gunung rajah requires 3d 2n or 2d 1n to hike. The last time I went to gunung rajah was 5 years ago.  The reason why we choose gunung rajah for trail run is the ample of water station along the trail. The last water point water feels like water taken out from the fridge. Cold and refreshing but the color looks like Chinese tea. The starting point is at chamang waterfall which is 8km from Bentong town. The height 1685 m / 5526 ft and the elevation I leave it  Yip Weng Tak to tell you. Is a also famous for a lightning incident.
I wonder where will be by next trail run. Liang East and West ? Gunung Batu Putih ? Anyone ?
