  • Went to Mount Jerai during the weekend for a day trip. It is a small resort area 1000m above sea level, its cooling up there. It has a good view from the top on the paddy field in Kedah. There are plenty of flora and fauna in that area for your view. The road is a bit stiff and sloppy and limited parking area at the top, you can either hike up there from bottom which will take about one hour or take shuttle provided by the resort. There is also a cafe serving coffee and pastries and a buffer restaurant. Also available activities are botanical garden, strawberry farm, flying fox and et .
  • Apparently,the road uphill is closed for tourist EXCEPT for those who ride pickup van. RM 70 per and van driver very nice tho. Can share with other if want. Still undergoes construction. Very steep at certain corner. Botanical garden closed. Strawberry farm didn't have much attraction. Got cafe, hotel/resort, restaurant and monkey :)
  • Complete my hiking at Gunung Jerai on 26Feb 2022. It was difficult but didn’t give up. Made few friends and had good memories, Mountain always looking for new hikers get the experience you will love the beauty of the nature.
  • Home of the Roots Riders. I think it is one of the best trail in Malaysia, of course, it was an 'off-road' descend ride at the starting of elevation around 938 meters. It offers 3 main trails, resort to Titi Hayun, resort to Sri Perigi (forking out from Titi Hayun trail) and from the lower part Museum to Kampung Setar. The longest trail was like 7 to 8km. Got an up-lift service via local pickup driver, they can even organize a lorry. The local food was good. The ride was so good that you will miss it so much everyday and every weekends. The trails offers lots of roots that they called it 'speghetti', garden of rocks, long steep sections and lots more on a single descend. The famous advice during the ride was to let go of your front brakes or in malay, "lepas brek depan". The best place to improve your riding skills and to challenge yourself.
  • Beautiful chain of mountains, so green and peaceful 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
