GUNUNG BELUMUT

I am still eager to climb Gunung Belumut. My plan to climb the mountain this year has been hampered by the construction works taking place to improve the facilities of the park.

The usual me, this is just one of those mountains that can be covered in just a day.

I am refreshing the idea and have been contacting one guy from the net by the name of Ami The Great. He replied my email while he was oversea saying that the park has been re-opened to public quite sometimes. I really appreciate his reply. Other than that he's also saying:

1. climbing the mountain is easy as there are clear trails. The trails are marked with red paint?
2. it's advisable to report to Balai Polis Kg. Gajah before climbing
3. he's not sure whether there are foods at the park. The nearest place to buy foods is at Felda Ulu Dengar / Felda Kahang Timur.
4. the access road is tarred, so moving about is easy

I will definitely include Gunung Belumut in my hiking activities next year. This year is really coming to an end for my hiking activities. From this week onwards, I'll be very busy and would have to work over the weekend until middle of December. Maybe working 7 days a week, putting in 14 hours a day... that's how busy my year end is going to be...
