Batu Kumbang Hike
The Bettle Rock hike start from the Kemensah. The same trail to big falls of Kemensah last week. Along the trail to Kubang Gajah, before reaching, there is a fork that toward left side. It been block with few sticks. It was super muddy during this monsoon season. Leeches can’t be avoided. I had few on my waist even with long pant. It about 6.5km one way. Toward the end, it was all root grabbing 300m climb to the top. View was definitely panoramic with elevation at 693m. I would rate it at 5/10 Challenging. With some luck, you may catch rare shy Malayan Coral Snake. Red headed and blue body stripe. Really nice tone.
For the more adventurous type, there a Trans from Batu Kumbang – Bukit Chenuang – Sg. Congkak. With a total of 14km. Perhaps we could try that one out with GPS mapping trails.
