Climbing mountain is a
pleasant experience in Terengganu simply because most of the mountains in
this area are covered by thick tropical rainforest with rich vegetation in
addition to the significant diverse of temperature between lowland and
mountain area that creates a mossy and misty scenery in the forest.
Forests and mountains in
Terengganu are mainly located in the interior of the state which is also
part of the Titiwangsa range. Some of the mountains are mainly composed of
granite and are steeply tilted and founded sandstone outcrops along the
river. This will require the assistance of some techniques and simple
gears such as robe and hook. However, some mountains with trails properly
marked help the climber a lot especially beginners.
Mountain climbing can be done in a day time and sometimes abseiling will involve in certain points. Therefore it is very important for you to be prepared before entering the jungle. Amongst the most common place to do this activity is Gunung Tebu in the north of Kuala Terengganu, Gunung Main Angin (1459m) and Gunung Gagau (1376m) in the Terengganu-Pahang border etc. which are the good spots to climb and spend some times up there. Seek for a reliable travel agency and get a guide which is normally inclusive in the service then hike yourself in the beautiful rainforest covered mountain.
