Mount Batu Puteh near Kuala Woh in Tapah, Perak. Batu Puteh (ranked as 8th highest in Malaysia) easily seen from the North South Expressway but getting to the base of the climb is quite a challenge (copied from Virtual Malaysia- at least i've cited this, not plagirising but the formatting remain underlined huhu). The trail starts near the Kuala Woh dam and we hired a guide (a friend in UIA).

It was a strenuous climb which took us three days of hike and we've passed a cave on the first day. Huge weathered trails where the trek becomes very steep and dangerously close to a cliff. Well, i have to say that Bt Puteh is not a walk in the park. The peak of Mount Batu Puteh is very big (not as big as Mt Kinabalu) and it is windy and misty. It was 8 of us : Ainil (me), Wan Rizzal, Afiq, Lisa Bradley (Australian), Waheeda (Singaporean), Halim (The Project Manager), Khainis (the guide) and Nia.
verall!! we did 6 and a half hours OF trekking to reach the first campsite. Another 5 and half hours to reach the peak and we took more than 7 hours to go down. the trek is vertical climb....MENTALLY & physically strenous huhu
