We have some good news for our fellow Singaporeans and visitors to our lovely cosmopolitan city.

Good News #1: You don't have to travel far and wide to get your hike on.
Good News #2: Neither do you have to spend a lot of money.

In our beautiful neighbouring country Malaysia, there are lots of natural hidden treasures to explore. In this infographic, we pinpoint 8 of the must-do Malaysian hikes and how long it takes to get there from Singapore by car (Except Mt Kinabalu which requires you to take a plane)

USP (Unique Selling Point) of each destination:

1. Mt Ophir: Most popular training mountain in Malaysia, Nice view of the stars when you camp there at night, Ropes and ladders to climb if you like that

2. Gunung Datuk: Awesome view at the top especially if you get there at sunrise, beginner-friendly, ropes and ladders to climb too!

3. Rainbow Falls: Rainbow + Waterfalls, what more do we have to say (:

4. Gunung Lambak: Good training hill and workout for your leg muscles

5. Mossy Forest (Gunung Brinchang): Reopened again in 2016, it gives you a mix of feels between LOTR and a Grimm fairytale

6. Berkelah Falls: If you've never tried cliff diving before, this is the place to do it. Ask the locals for advice on where is the best spot.

7. Gunung Tahan: The word "Tahan" means Endure and endure you must as this trek is not made up of just one, but 7 of the highest peaks in Peninsular Malaysia. Only recommended for the physically fit and brave of heart. Satisfaction guaranteed.

8. Mt Kinabalu, At 4095m, it is the highest mountain in Malaysia and one of the best sunrise views around. It even has its own via ferrata trail so you can literally hang on the mountain! A must-do for all adventurers.

Experience the 'finest walk in the world’ as you retrace the steps of early explorers on the world-renowned Milford Track.
Take a journey along valleys carved by glaciers, wander through ancient rainforests and admire cascading waterfalls. You’ll follow a historic route through Fiordland National Park, part of Te Wāhipounamu – South West New Zealand World Heritage Area, before reaching your final destination, the spectacular Milford Sound. The Milford Track can only be walked in one direction. The track is well marked and signposted, but some sections are steep and rough and the track may be muddy and slippery. On fine days there is a postcard shot around every corner but only when it rains and torrents of water cascade down the mountainsides have you truly experienced the magic of the Milford Track.

Sapa Valley Tour: 17 - 23 March 2018

At an altitude of 1650 m located at the edge of the Hoang Lien Son mountain range, Sapa is one of the most picturesque and tranquil locations in all of Vietnam. Once a French hill station, the area is home to a number of ethnic minority communities including the Black H’mong and Red Dzao, among others. Sapa’s breathtaking beauty comes in the form of hills, valleys, mountains, streams and waterfalls, and of course the warmth of the locals. One particular draw for visitors to visit Sapa is the daily activity of the native tribal people, which are on display at the markets and in various surrounding villages. A couple of days in this hilly paradise will make you feel refreshed and give you a real appreciation for Vietnam’s north. Sapa and its surroundings offer particularly rich ground for trekking. The natural beauty of the area is unparalleled and can be seen in rich greenery, gorgeous waterfalls and the unique ethnic minority villages that dot the countryside.
