Following the heavy rains in December 2021 that affected many parts of the country, several landslides and flooding damage occured in the area close to us. A landslide buried the trail head to Lata Berembun/Gunung Berembun and several parts of the trail are damaged with fallen trees and landslides. The forestry department has yet to fix this and have closed the trail indefinitely.
The Berembun river water is also very muddy now and is no longer the picturesque walk it used to be. It will take some time before the waters clear and the river recovers it's original beauty.
5 minute drive down the hill (or 20 minute walk) and a 5 minute (or less) descent to the river for a little dip. Guide not needed.
8 minute drive down the hill (or 30 minute walk) and a 5 minute (or less) descent to the river and a short 10 minute river trek to the waterfall. Guide available on request
5 minute drive down the hill (or 20 minute walk) and another 10 minute walk to trail head, 5 minute trail descent to river, and a 90 minutes river trek back to the car. Guide available on request.
5 minute drive to the trail head and a 90 minutes trek into the jungle to a river for a swim and return the same way. Easy and mostly flat trek with some very short sections of incline. Guide available
Perhaps you don't feel like a trek and just want to drive to a waterfall. Jeram Toi is just a 20 minute drive away and you has convenient walkways and stairs to access the many levels of the falls. Very popular with locals as well as visitors from further afield who come and swim in the river pools. Has convenient toilet facilities on site. No guide needed.
Another waterfall / river you can drive to is Ulu Bendol 30 minutes drive away, quite similar in feel to Jeram Toi with facilities for visitors and also popular amongst locals and visitors from other parts. Very conveniently accessible by car. No guide needed.
A 30 minute drive away there is the trail head of Gunung Angsi, an 830 metre hill taking about 90 minutes one way to the summit. Quite steep and sustained but with very convenient and safe trails and steps. A very well established trek, with pretty trees and quite tame forest, with nice views of the rolling hills of Seri Menanti. No guide needed.
A 1 hour drive away from us in the adjacent county of Rembau, this mountain is about as high as Gunung Angsi but is much wilder and less established and friendly. Takes a bit longer to summit at 90 to 110 minutes one way and it is a more challenging climb, but the view is spectacular and unmatched regionally. No guide needed.
