Mount Irau Climb at Cameron Highlands (3 September 2016)
3rd September 2016
At 2,110m, Mount Irau is the ninth highest mountain in Peninsular Malaysia. The 4 hours trek up to the summit at 2110 metres through a unique terrain of forest covered with green moss will take you through beautiful picturesque views of the neighbouring Ipoh city, as well as sightings of the plentiful huge pitcher plants growing on trees. Coupled with the excellent refreshing cool weather, many of our fellow hikers have agreed that this hike is akin to walking through the movie set of Lord of the Rings. The numerous distinct markers of Pahang and Perak that are seen along the way will remind you of the unique position of this mountain, situated between the two states. Join us today in a small group climb to the mountain!
