  • The management will make sure you check-in and take your body temperature. RM2 is collected from each car and an entrance fee of RM1 per adult. You will have to walk about a 100m from the parking lot....  more

  • Gunung Ledang is a well known mountain shrouded thick with the legend of Princess Ledang. Also named as Mount Ophir, it lays between Johor and Melaka with 2 hiking routes, camp sites and waterfalls. Started at around 8am, 7 of us hiked with our friendly guide for about 7hours uphill via Sagil trail from Tangkak, Johor. The first few check points were warm ups in retrospect for the latter ones as more and more lengthy ladders replaced the sturdy hiking path. Towards the peak, ladders gave way to ropes and eventually we found ourselves abseiling to the top. View by now was breath-taking, both figuratively and literally.Especially fresh in my memory was the cool breeze in the foggy Japanese Garden near peak. By noon, we've summited and surrounded by clouds all around. Next, we headed downwards to a tent site for some much needed rest and a self-heating hot meal, what a life-saver. Hike down was a rather no-brainer with a hiking pole. By 6pm and 10 hours later, we've completed the trail of about 6km+ safely. All in all, I'd say it's a rather technical hike involving some ladder climbing & abseiling. Medium difficulty. Good to be fit enough to enjoy the hike.
  • End of June 2022: I made it to the summit of Mount Ophir. The daytrip (up and down) took me 11 hours. RM152 per pax, including tour guide and packed lunch. There‚Äôs penalty of RM50 per group if u returned after 7pm. Early August 2022: Went for photoshoot by the roadside. The view is still amazing and breathtaking
