Experience our diverse rainforest and take a mountain climbing challenge on your trip to Malaysia with our Kuala Lumpur Mountain Climbing Package.
Yes, you read correctly. You can include a mountain climbing package when you are on your trip to Malaysia especially if you are vacationing in Kuala Lumpur during your trip. The mountain is not in Kuala Lumpur though, but the staging point is just 2 hours away from the city. The staging point is in a place called Kampar and from here will be your climb up to Gunung Bujang Melaka (English: Bujang Melaka Mountain).
There are people just like you who want to taste the wild outdoors in Malaysia. Trek through some virgin rainforest, mix with the local people and absorb the beauty of the country. You can do this climb by putting aside 2 days and 1 night in your travel itinerary.
Essentially, the mountain is 4045 feet (1233 meters) above sea level, and requires a 4 to 5 hour trek to reach the summit. An overnight near the peak is in the itinerary and the descent will be on the second day.

NOTE TO CLIMBERS
Climbers must be in good physical shape and fitness level although those without any experience in trekking the tropical rainforest are certainly welcomed. Climbs are operational throughout the year. We do not have assigned departure dates and take in bookings as and when required. Although we can run the Gunung Bujang Melaka climb with a minimum of 2 pax, the cost will be higher generally as fixed costs are divided between the number of people in the group. The more people, the more savings you will see in your climbing cost. Do have a chat with us if you are keen. Don’t make the small number of people you have stop you from doing the climb!
WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE CLIMB PACKAGE
Our package will include round trip transportation from Kuala Lumpur (express bus or private transfer depending on your budget), local climbing guide(s), meals, and tents. You will be required to bring your own hiking shoes, personal medication, change of clothes, jumper and haversack. Equipment, utensils, food ration meant for the group will be divided equally to distribute the weight prior to the climb. Everyone is required to share responsibility in campsite duties. If you require porters, this can be arranged at the time of booking.
