A short walk through the jungle near Batu Caves, which follows the Pisang River (Sungai Pisang) through a set of tunnels under the Karak Highway and up to the picturesque Pisang Falls. Some nice picnic and camping spots near the top of the falls. A leisure hike that would require you to river trek so be prepared to have wet shoes.Show more

Gunung Berembun is the southern-most peak of the Berembun mountain range in Negeri Sembilan.  The peaks of this range extend on a north-south axis and form the border between Seremban (formerly Sungai Ujong) and Kuala Pilah districts. Firstly, the entire Berembun range is a protected primary forest reserve. As such, the visitor will be entertained with sights of enormous trees, super-sized insects, and a huge variety of birds. Indeed it’s a renowned place for bird watching given its accessibility from civilization. Secondly, the mountain top is also the resting place of a World War II Royal Airforce bomber that crashed on a mission in 1945. The remnants of the plane was discovered in 1996 by the Orang Asli and the remains of the crew recovered for proper burial. The crash site is along the mountain ridge connecting Gunung Berembun to Telapak Buruk (about half-way between them) and can be accessed from either end. At the start of the trek, there is a junction leading up the hill side on the right.  It’s marked with some red ribbons. After this junction, the trail snakes its way on the left bank of the river valley. The river drains the high basin on the west of the Berembun range and will be the gateway into the forest and up to the peak. The path at this point rises and drops regularly but always gradually. The jungle is thick with very large trees, many having 2m diameter trunks. There are also plenty of fruit trees along the way. In about 2 kms, after crossing 2 streams, there is a clearing beside the Jerlang river. There is a curious sign board at the clearing in the shape of a bird! Show more
