2014/05/24 – Mount Angsi Day Trip [Completed]

Event: Mount Angsi Day Trip

Date: 24th May 2014

Description:

Mount Angsi is located in Ulu Bendol Recreational Forest on the outskirts of Seremban, the capital of Negri Sembilan. At 825m above sea level and with a well defined trail, it is a suitable climb for beginner to intermediate hikers.

There are two treks that will bring you up to Gunung Angsi, one via the Ulu Bendol Forest Park and the other via Bukit Putus. For this climb, we will go for the longer but more interesting trail via the Ulu Bended Forest Park. Some of the sights that we will see include a cascading waterfall and two rivers.

At the summit, you will be rewarded with a bird eye’s view of Seremban town. For an average hiker, the trek to the summit is estimated to take about 4 hours while the descent will take another 4 hrs.
