The height of a mountain is not an indication of how difficult the terrain will be, or a determining factor of the kind of view one can get from its summit. This describes well of Gunung Panti, which is situated in the north of Kota Tinggi, Johor.

Though not a very high mountain at a height of 531m, Gunung Panti is very prominent from a distance and gives a spread of view at its summit. The unique shape of the mountain makes it easy to be recognized - some call it the table-top of southern Malaysia

So what’s more?

To gain the best of Panti, we will be doing Trans-Panti during this hike. In mountain trekking world, “trans” refers to ending your trek different from where you start, which means you will not take the same route up and down the mountain.

There are mainly two challenges one will have to go through to complete this hike. The first is a steep wall face that needs to be climbed before reaching the summit. The second part is the roots obstacle on the way down. As such, this trek is recommended for those with basic fitness (preferably with experience of trekking/hiking) and for those who are comfortable with heights.
