Leader:Mei Foong E-mail:paintbrushnature@yahoo.com.sg
Remarks: Late night departure on 26Apr Sat night 11:30pm. Cost includes transport, trekking permit, compulsory local trekking guide and early dinner in M'sia.

This is a moderately challenging trek : suitable for those who have done some light trekking trails in Malaysia, and looking for new trail challenges.

Gunung Angsi is located in Ulu Bendol recreational forest on the outskirts of Seremban, the capital of Negri Sembilan. At a height of about 825m, the climb is quite straightforward and the trail well defined and clear. After an initially deceptive flat beginning, the ascent becomes steeper with a ridgeline leading up all the way to the summit. Closer to the summit, there are gullies which provide some challenges to the trekkers. It takes about average 3 hours of trekking uphill before reaching the summit, and 2 hours to return to the the same trail head.

We will depart late Friday night, reach base early morning, and climb the Saturday morning after breakfast.

A local dinner in Malaysia is included before returning to Singapore.
