Ascent Trip Report

At 5.423694, 100.269444, we exit the funicular. A lot of people had to wait in line to go up. Approximately 4 kilometers along the paved road to the imporvised military base gate. Next to the gate, it is clearly stated in two languages that the entrance is restricted. For those who cannot read, it is a clear picture that shows how the offenders will be dealt with. We go back and visit the not-so-interesting canopy walk (for an additional fee); the highest tourist points on the island; an Indian temple, the mosque, some houses; and finally, we take the funicular down.

0h45 up, 1h20 down, 2h05 roundtip.

Photos from Western Hill

This was a self-organized trip. Made with the help of a driver in Indonesia and a few local guides in Malaysia. Due to landslides, all parks in the Perak region in Malaysia were closed, so we substituted them with a few-day peakbagging trip in Indonesia.
