Date: Saturday, 31st Jan – 1st Feb 2015
Meeting Point: 3pm at taxi stand outside Marsiling MRT
Mount Lambak (or Gunung Lambak) stands at 510 metres tall and requires about 4 hours of hiking from the mountain base to the summit and back, making it a suitable mountain for beginners.
Calling out to all the night owls, hikers who are planning to go for sunrise summit climbs in Mount Rinjani / Mount Kinabalu as well as all nature- lovers, this climb has been specially organized with you in mind. This is a great opportunity for you to experience climbing in the night, where you can train your eyes to get used to the minimal lighting available (relying solely on your trusty headlights and moonlight), and more importantly, grow confidence in hiking in the dark.
Located at Kluang town in the Johor state, Malaysia, it is about three hours drive from Singapore, we will first head for dinner and have an early rest at Merdeka Hotel or similar. The night climb will begin at 3am, where we will target to reach the summit at 6am, in time for the day break. Watch the forest come abuzz with life as you hike down, retracing your steps and appreciating the difference in the lighting. We will enjoy our breakfast at the famous Kluang Rail Coffeeshop, before heading back to the hotel for a shower and rest. The afternoon will be spent at the Zenxin Organic Farm before heading back to Singapore.
