Gunung Lambak have always been close to my heart, as I have been climbing up this mountain since my schooling day; Kluang is my hometown if you are wondering why and how.

Back then, we used to trek up this mountain using various trail over the weekends, to our hangout spot at its summit. This mountain was also where I first obtained the interest in conservation and nature protection when we used to do conservation works in the 90’s with my school mates.

The challenging slopes, the boulders on the way up, and the small stream on the side track were always a treat. Even today, whenever I bring adventurers to the trails on this mountain, I tend to share my memories and the different routes to give mixed experiences.

Nowadays, whenever I have new hikers join the team, Gunung Lambak is one of the few places that I use to train and identify their fitness level, especially when they sign up for mountain expeditions. And for the rest, it is always a nearby weekend trek to build their stamina up the 2-peaked mountain.

And of course as a reward, the wonderful chendol at Kader Chendol stall, which is by far one of the best chendols in Malaysia. Just a few steps away, we have the mural street of Kluang, where you can bring out the child in you and enjoy a walk along the street, and many more.

Important: nTravel insurance: always good to have when on travels out of the country. It is the responsibility of the agency to remind participants on the travel insurance, but it is the responsibility of the participants to purchase the insurance. nThe camping style at G7 mountains can be different from the common camping experiences that you may have had in the past. As the camping site is only meant to be a temporary resting site before proceeding with the summit climb, we will have a mass tent facility known as the A-frame tent, with ground sheet. You can bring your sleeping bag (it can be cold past midnight) to lay on the ground sheet to make yourself comfortable. n
