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 took us about 1 hour 30 minutes to reach the first campsite, Kem Lolo, which is our initial target.
After a small rest at Kem Lolo, we decided to continue our climb to the next campsite, while some will stay at Kem Lolo after the exhausted hike. Then, we gave our steps the final push through the red clay up to Kem Pacat, a campsite before the peak. We trekked for almost 2 hours to reach the campsite. We had our light lunch and chilled out at Kem Pacat for a while.
After filled up our stomach, we decend from Kem Pacat at about 2:00pm. We went straight to the river for a clean up and cooling bath when we reached Kem Lolo. We dismissed at about 6:00pm from the entrance. The journey will be continued...the next mission will be the peak!
