Nuang Hike

On the 6th of December, there were 15 of us in a group who gone up to Gunung Nuang, Hulu Langat and that was no easy task. The trip was organised by Lafuma Malaysia Adventure Group (LMAG) for its customers and it is open for the publics as well. It's all started at 7:00am at Lafuma Bangsar where consists of 4 cars leave the shop heading towards Hulu Langat.


The journey from KL to Gunung Nuang entrance took us around 45 minutes. Some of us have never been to Nuang before thought that since it is just within Selangor state and it shouldn’t take that “long” to reach the destination. As usual we started the climb with some briefing and the guide and sweeper for the day is Muzammil and CK from Lafuma.


We started our hike with the pretty rocky, uphill and never ending trail. We went through the pine tree forest and bamboo gardens. We couldn't differentiate what are the differences because they all look the same to us. Besides, we had a few water stops and rest along the way and it too…

The rainy season in November didn’t stop LMAG’s hiking activity. We went to Rasa Hill, which is 285 meters above sea level and located at Bukit Terek Forest Reserve, Hulu Selangor. Most of the past hikers do not know the exact name of the hill because Rasa Hill was named after Two Ringgit Hill by them.


We started the climb at 8:30am in the morning. Suddenly, the sky started to rain. However, we were lucky that the rain was just lasted for a few minutes. The trail is pretty short and it can be divided into three different parts. The first section of our journey was slow as the terrain full with loose rock and soft soil. At one part of the route, we need to climb a 90 degrees wall.


Next, we trekked inside the jungle that is full with ‘Bertam’ trees. Then, we passed through the section with ‘Resam’ trees vegetation before we finally reached for the summit of Rasa Hill. The hike is interesting because the peak was marked by Trigo Station and 360° panorama. We also can see Genting Highlands …
