Gunung Panti stands at 531m tall and is located north of Kota Tinggi in Johor state.
We started our day early for the hike. This hike was planned as a day hike, hence we assembled at 6.00AM for the departure into Johor. The first thing we did once we cleared customs? Head for breakfast of course! We need to fuel our body up to get ready for the hike ahead.
After a quick breakfast, we went on to meet our local mountain guide and geared up for the hike. We were brought to a new development around Gunung Panti. The old route that our hiking leader used to take is undergoing redevelopment to become a conservation area for elephants to roam about freely. That interests us and we cannot wait for the project to be completed.
We feel it is only right to celebrate our achievement with a lovely seafood dinner at a kelong, and so we did! It was nice to sit down and share our personal thoughts about our hike and why we choose to put ourselves through this ‘torture’ time and again. Hahaha!
As we made our way back to Singapore, our spirits were kept high as we reflected upon a day well spent in nature.
