Gunung Datuk

Gunung Datuk is located in Rembau, Negeri Sembilan and is a two hour drive from Kuala Lumpur. Due to its remoteness, the markedly less people compared to the more popular Broga Hill. The drive itself will take you to a very small road ( that does not even look like a road at all ) deep towards the foot of the mountain. The GPS coordinates are : 2.543015,102.168705.

Despite its remoteness, there were quite a few people there. Do be prepared for the seasonal bus loads of students from around the area. These batches of students may create a bottle neck at the summit where only one ladder make up the entry and exit of the summit. The entire journey up will take 2-3 hours depending on your speed. At the summit, you might want to hang around for an hour or two and the journey back is another 2-3 hours.

We ascended at 9am. The climb is a two hour journey starting with a very steep decent for about 1 hour. It gets gradually easier or the next hour while the last 30 minutes is steep again. Reaching up the summit, a couple of huge boulders will greet you and a few tiny ladders will allow visitors to trickle up and down the rocks. As you will be reaching mid day, you might consider bringing some sun protection - the sun is really hot up there. Bring 1 litre of water per person as it does get really dehydrating in the sun. Luckily we brought umbrellas to the top which proved useful. A picnic there would be great as well and the view is just breathtaking

 Getting down is a challenge and will strain your knees. A knee guard or strap can help cushion the impact. On the way down, we got a little lost but managed to find our way back down in the end. The best thing down there was a small shop selling ice cold drinks in the hot weather. Special thanks to BB, Wai Kit, Sook Wan, Xing Xian, Melissa and two more companions who made the journey up!
