Standing at 1038 meters above sea level and perpetually covered by clouds is Mount Kajang – the tallest mountain in Pulau Tioman. The mountain which towers above the surrounding tropical forest has been used as a navigational aid by seafarers since medieval time. Mount Kajang’s remoteness and inaccessibility has maintained its biodiversity in the face of civilization. The trek will bring you through lush primary forest with interesting wildlife that are endemic to the island. If you are quiet, patient and lucky, you might stumble upon some elusive animals like colugos, porcupines, mouse deer etc. This is a challenging but rewarding trek. The trail goes uphill all the way to the summit. Be prepared to find your way along unbeaten path, bash through thick vegetation and scramble over boulders and fallen logs. If you are looking for real challenge and an easy getaway from city life, put Mount Kajang on your list!
In the early morning, you will be picked up by our friendly driver from Marsiling MRT Station to the ferry terminal in Mersing Malaysia (approx. 3.5 hrs drive). Board the ferry for Pulau Tioman (approx. 1.5-2 hrs ferry ride). Check in to your resort. Free and easy at your own leisure for the rest of the day.
In the morning, meet your mountain guide at Paya Beach Jetty who will provide an introduction to the mountain and conduct a safety briefing. The hike from the trailhead to the summit of Mount Kajang takes about 5-6 hours. After a picnic lunch at the summit, you will descend for 5-6 hours via the same route back to Paya Beach. Free and easy at your own leisure for the rest of the day.
