Gunung Nuang

From downtown Kuala Lumpur, travel south to Cheras. After Phoenix Plaza, heading to the direction of Kajang. After paying the toll, you will notice a signboard stated Air Terjun Sg. Gabai on your left hand side. Turn left, then drive along and you will reach a junction with traffic light. You will notice a police station on your right hand side. Turn left and follow the direction of Pekan Batu.18. Go staright and after 20-30 minutes, you will reach Pangsun which is very near the entrance. Ask someone there and they will show you the way to the entrance.

You have to walk around 60 to 90 minutes to the foothill depending on your fitness from the car park. The foothill is called Kem Lolo where you could see Orang Asli there. The watergate/floodgate could be spotted too. Then, it's all the way up until you reach a place called Dataran Pacat where campers stay. The trail becomes tougher after this.

The view from the peak is not so great compare to other mountains but the satisfaction is great. It is possible to trek up and down within 10 hours from the car park if you are fit and the path condition is dry.
