At the begining of our journey, it's look like a walk in recreation park before we head to a stream nearby.

We have to cross a few river path. Some of us does not prepared to get wet on the journey. Crossing river again and again makes them take off an…

Lessons from my 1st Gunung Hitam (1210m) trek on May 24, 2008. (by Barbara Foong)

PACE – I could not keep pace with the leader.
Scenery – as a very visual person, I was not able to enjoy the thick jungle undergrowth as I struggled to keep pace so as not to be left behind.
The simple act of tying up my boot laces could make me lose sight of those in front. As there were much low shrubs, branches and thorns, my boot laces became undone quite a number of times.
Gunung means mountain – one needs to pull herself/himself up in various steep pitches. My alpine Millet boots were not meant for jungle trekking. Thus I was not able to have any foothold on the loose jungle soil. There were also no handholds ( no roots or branches to grab onto to pull oneself up.) There was a scary moment of sliding down about 10 feet with nothing to hold on to!) I was saved by the sweeper 'man' who moved ahead and cut down a branch for me to hold, passed me a very thin rope (about 5mm thick I think) and another guy planting his foot for me to step on to climb up. Whew! Was I exhausted a…

LMAG climb Mt. Hitam (24 May 2008)

Image
Prolog


Shop Online
Mt Hitam is one of the mountain in Selangor. The locals and villages (Hulu Langat residents) near that mountain call it Bukit (hill) Hitam. When I heard some of our local mountain seekers call it as mountain, I went and check it out with our government Land Office official topography map of that location. To my surprise it was labeled as Gunung Hitam with height of 1210m. Side by side; river stream and our trail.
