Gunung Bunga Buah in Genting

We went to Gunung Bunga Buah, Genting Pahang on Jan 14, 2010.

Drove from Kuala Lumpur, passing the Gombak Toll, we passed the rows of shop houses in Goh Tong Jaya.

Parked our car besides an organic vegetable farm, started trekking on foot through some rocky path and a vegetable farm.

we made our climb at 9.15 am on Jan 14, 2010 towards Gunung Bunga Buah. Climbed through a steep slope.

We landed ourselves on a tarred road that was previously used to go up to Genting Highland.

We continued walking until our team leader Mr. Shahrul, who has been there many times, tell us to always look out at this junction the next time we are coming to Gunung Bunga Buah.

Genting old road has so many of these kind of junctions, how do we ascertain this is the right one ?

With his instruction to trek left,

and left we went.

One clue though, on the left of this junction, you will find an old quarry.

some beautiful stone walls,

Some different conditions of the path after the old quarry site

Certain parts of the path is covered with tall bushes, if you fancy playing hide & seek, go no where but enjoy yourself here. but a word of caution though, there are lots of.....

blood sucking eerie, crazy leeches letching unto you if you stay too long in the bushes.

Some parts are clear for you to stop & put down your bag, take off your shoes to check the little creatures.

Other than these, the trek is rather mild, going up & down just like any other jungle in Malaysia.

We trek another 45 minutes or so, came to the junction that will lead us up Gunung Bunga Buah.

Some of the signs to look out for is a piece of colourful cloth that was tied by someone to mark the entrance up.

A clearer view of the cloth tied to the tree at the junction towards Gunung Bunga Buah.

and trekking up and happily we went towards our destination,

5 minutes later, we came to a flat land. took a snapshot.

and then Henry heard ............
