Gunung Gayong is part of the Titiwatsa Mountain Range. It stands at a mighty 7129feet above sea level, making it the 4th tallest peak in Peninsular Malaysia.
Highlights – It is always visited along with yet another peak of Titiwatsa, Mount Korbu, which is the 2nd tallest peak in Peninsular Malaysia at a height of 7162feet. Only professional mountain hikers can visit these peaks as it takes around 4 to 5 days to make a return trip here. Completing this trip is considered to be rare, as it is replete with many challenging hurdles.
Facts – Kinta Dam and Blue Valley Dam are two points through which you can start hiking to these peaks. One can get lost easily here as there are no clear marks. Hence, using the services of a professional guide becomes mandatory.
Timings – Late January to March.
Fee – Permit required if hiking is done from Kinta Dam. Total fee for two peaks – RM205 at the maximum per person
