Hike Series for TFH team 2017
Those who are not considering any of the TFH trips are welcomed to join too.
We are pleased to announce the following training hike at Gunung Muntahak and Panti for the TFH teams.
Host: Wai Yin and Mala
The popular Kota Tinggi waterfall has its origin from Gunung Muntahak (634masl). Muntahak is a relatively undisturbed mountain covered by tall canopies providing perfect conditions for the growth of rare palm tree, Diamond Joey. The beauty of Muntahak doesn’t lie in its summit but in its variety of terrain you will encounter along the way, including the old tin mining land, plethora of Orchids and Pitcher plants and a large pond filled with fishes and frogs.
On the following day, exploration of Gunung Panti (531masl) will follows. It may not be as high but equally fascinating with its forest being home to some malaysia elephants, you may not encounter them but they definitely leave trails that can be easily seen (& smell)…..
SAFETY is of its most importance, listen and follow the guide instructions at all time.
