10 Days Gunung Tahan Trek

One of the most challenging trekking experience with a life long excitement.

Gunung Tahan, 2187 metres (7174 ft), is the highest mountain in Peninsular Malaysia. The mountain is situated inside Taman Negara, on the Pahang-Kelantan border. The Merapoh – Kuala Tahan trail requires about 100 km trek, passing through low altitude primary jungle, across rivers, up to a cool mountain plateau. Gunung Tahan is at the top end of the plateau. The crossover trek takes 5-7 days. . The trek starts at Sungai Relau, a 13-km drive from the jungle headquarters of Taman Negara at Kuala Juram. The Park can be reached by van from the station at Merapoh or Gua Musang. Coping with the trek depends on your fitness – both physical and mental, the choice of suitable equipment and the load you carry on your back. The weight you can carry depends on your age, fitness and body weight. A maximum of one-quarter of body weight is a good guide in humid, hot conditions as in Gunung Tahan. However, packs must be kept as light as possible: 15-20 kg is what to expect for this trek up Gunung Tahan.
