The last time I climbed all the way to the top of Gunung Angsi (825 meters above sea level) was 2 years and 4 months ago! That’s a very long time ago!
I’ve been shying away from climbing this mountain mainly because I find the trail extremely dirty (it’s very obvious the tourism board in Negeri Sembilan hasn’t been doing their work – the entire place is in a state of disrepair).
Anyway, last Saturday, we decided to climb it again and it was quite fun climbing during the month of Ramadhan because we were practically the only people in the entire mountain! The park ranger’s office was closed as well, as were all the stalls in the area.
Because of the heavy downpour the day before, the trail was wet, muddy and slippery (and full of leeches too!)
Here were the statistics:
1. Time taken to summit: 3 hours 15 min
2. Time taken to descend: 2 hours 45 min
3. Water consumed: 1.5 litres
4. Isotonic drink consumed: 1.3 litres
5. Food consumed: 2 Nougats, 1 sweet, 1 packet of fried rice
On the way up the trail, we came across 3 large seeds like the one below:
I am posting the photo here in case any of you could help me identify the species from which this giant seed comes from.

The next climb will be in 2 weeks time – Mount Kinabalu here I come (again!)
