Place: Kuala Pilah, Negeri Sembilan
Mount: Mount Angsi
Heights: 824 meters
Facts: "Gunung Angsi is one of Malaysia's relatively minor mountains with a height of 2702ft or 824m. It ranks 241st on my list of Malaysia's highest mountains and it is the 3rd highest peak in Negeri Sembilan state, after Gunung Datuk and Bukit Bintongan which are both slightly higher. Gunung Angsi is only an hour's drive from Kuala Lumpur being located in Ulu Bendul Recreational Park, about 20 km from Seremban, the state capital of Negeri Sembilan.
The mountain's relative proximity to KL makes it a popular hiking spot. Ulu Bendul Recreational Park itself has clear streams, shady picnic and BBQ sites and gets crowded with families especially at weekends.
Climbing Gunung Angsi takes most people up to 3 hours to go up and somewhat less coming down making it a do-able half day excursion.
You need to register at the park ranger's office before starting your ascent and pay a nominal fee (RM 5 per person). Arrive early as they might not let you start the climb if you arrive after 11am." excerpt from malaysia-traveller
We woke up early to drive to R&R Berenang to meet with some friends before heading out to Kuala Pilah. I have never been to Kuala Pilah or Mount Angsi before so I have no idea what to expect.
We arrived at Bukit Putus around 7:30am. We were told that a trail from here is a bit steep at first but will get easier after one hour. This is the shortest and easiest trail to Angsi Summit with the estimation of two hours hike.
