Gunung Berembun - 1,840m asl

I went for a camping cum hiking trip at Cameron Highlands last week. I took my youngest son along.  He's been following me to hiking activities at places like Bukit Gasing, Ayer Hitam Forest Reserve and Sungai Chilling Waterfall. He managed to reach the peak of Gunung Berembun at 1,840meter above sea level. It was an easy hike for him and he led all the way during the final push. Congratulations!

Taking A Year Break

My next trip to Gunung Datuk on June 30 will be the last hiking trip for me this year.

I'll be taking a year break from hiking as advised by my Orthopedic.

If you have been reading my updates, you've probably noticed that I have been complaining about slip disc, knee pain and lately shoulder pain. The shoulder is a relapse from an incident that happened a long time ago.I will need a long time for them recuperate.

So what will I blog about? 

First of all, the blog may have to be renamed to 'mini hiker'. LOL!

I may take about other exercises/activities that I will keep doing like swimming, brisk walking, camping, trekking on flat area (not hiking) and perhaps foods!

I change the name of the blog to Small Baker lah! LOL!

Tabur Extreme

I heard a lot about Tabur Extreme but somehow I really had no idea on how to get there until I met a hiking friend at the peak of Tabur East.  She was excited about the idea and had the trip arranged.  Unfortunately, she couldn't join us on that day.  The entrance is located deep inside after exiting at the entrance of Zoo Negara, I think it's about 5 km.
We started off at about 8am and completed the hiking about 4 hours later.  My verdict is the place is nothing to shout about, Tabur Extreme/Tabur 3 offers scenery that is similar to Tabur West and East.  There was nothing extreme about the except perhaps it's less hiked.  The treks were not clear as the place and someone in the group had to use 'parang' to clear the treks. 
Ar the peak, I could see the peaks of West Tabur and East Tabur.

Enjoy the pictures.
