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

We reached Kluang around noon time and took a taxi to Gunang Lambak. We went the easier route up as there are 2 routes to chose. However, the easier route also need quite steep climbing at certain parts. It's good to bring a hiking pole...More

We had a memorable day at Gunung Lambak. We started early and reached the midpoint easily, meeting a group of schoolgirls on tour and finding our first cache of the day. Then things got more complicated as we missed a turn on our way to...More

You can walk up and down within a few hours. The track is quite steep in parts towards the summit. There are ropes to help you up or down.
