Hike on Mount. Ophir (Gunung Ledang), Johor

Mount Ophir (N2°22.402' E102°36.481')
Hikers had rated Gunung Ledang (Mount. Ophir) as the 6th difficult summit trails among Malaysia mountains. There's 4 trails can go up to the summit. Here's the hiker's trail from Gate B, Pusat Operasi Taman Negara Gunung Ledang. Total 8 checkpoints (CP) along the trail. The terrain before CP5 is quite gentle uphill. The KFC session is after CP6 up to CP 8 (summit) ... Along the way there's ropes and ladders to assist. This is not a leisure jungle walk." - By Snail-Works

Welcome to Mount Ophir of Johor

Pusat Operasi Taman Negara Gunung Ledang

"We have not much time to enjoy the scenery due to we were late to the trailhead. There's rule that if anybody cannot reach summit before 3.00pm, he/she must turn back from the point where he/she is. Hikers are not allowed to camp overnight in the park." - By Snail-Works

Check Point 3

Start of KFC! (KFC = Killing Fitness Centre)

CP6 Gua (Cave) Kambing

continue of rock ascent

There must at least few hours of climb & hike to reach the peak of Mount Ophir. The total trail is about 5.8KM from the start point.
I might not fit enough for the trail....Hopefully one day the National Park is open for camping overnight, then...maybe I can try. Or else I'm definitely not fit to hike up & down within a day....haha!

Snail-Works and friends finally reach the summit. You can see the satisfaction from the face! :)

Don't wanna let go !
