This 400-meter hill, surrounded with lush green hills of a tropical rainforest, is quite a joy to hike during a quiet weekday morning where one can climb at their own pace.
The hike while steep is relatively easy, taking anywhere between 20 and 45 minutes to reach the highest peak depending on one’s fitness level, or photo stops.
From the peak, visitors get a spacious view of the plains, coated by a mixture of rainforest, oil palm plantations, villages and towns, along with distant mountains.
After the refreshing hike, chill out on a picnic and enjoy the view. Travellers can be a bit daring by exploring the lush rainforest and watch local wildlife but it’s best that local authorities are informed about your whereabouts.
