Went to Gunung Lambak earlier this year for a hike with my family. It took us about 3-4 hours to get up and another 2-3 hours to descend, albeit at a leisurely pace. Suitable for beginners who want to get a taste of hiking!

You can choose to go in the morning or evening. You can choose to just walk up the hill or also continue to climb more. So, it's good for gathering. For age 3 and above
