Gunung Pulai is about the nearest mountain in Peninsular Malaysia which one can visit from Singapore. Standing at just 600m tall with a tarmac road trail, it’s an easy 3 hours workout.
As I tracked the hike using my Garmin GPS, if you need the route in GPX format, just post a comment and I will send the download link to your email.
On a restless Saturday morning, I arranged to meet my Malaysian friend at his Johor home for a hike up Gunung Pulai.
But before that, we drove to a nearby food center for breakfast.
Along the way to the mountain, I learnt about the cost savings and practicalities of a car converted to use natural gas. Apparently, my friend used to work as a NGV salesman.
It’s about an hour drive to the Gunung Pulai which is located near Pontian.
The hike starts beyond the gate.
Evidently, the mountain is popular with families.
Scenery near the summit.
We couldn’t really continue to the summit as there is a military base so that’s the end of the one-way 5km hike.
On the return trip, we visited the streams and waterfall.
