Gunung Ledang (also known as Mount Ophir), 1276 metres (4187 ft), is probably Peninsular Malaysia’s best-known mountain. The mountain is situated in Johor, close to the Melaka border and it is a very accessible mountain. Ledang can be climbed in a weekend, camping one or two nights on the mountain.
Ledang is a good introduction to Jungle Mountains. The route up the mountain takes one from big trees on the lower slopes, through a mossy forest with several species of pitcher plant, to the wind-swept rocky summit with its rhododendrons and other flowering plants. The route up the summit is short, steep and a strenuous scramble in places. Although any healthy fit person can climb Gunung Ledang, it is not suitable for a casual family outing.
