Late last year we embarked on a hike to Gunung Telapak Buruk and Gunung Berembun of Seremban, Negeri Sembilan. This twin-mountain hiking expedition was in search for a WWII plane wreckage deep in the remote jungles.
Our hike lead went on this hike before but failed to locate the wreckage. This time around, we were determined to locate it and engaged a local mountain guide to lead us on the way.
We started the hike with a four wheel drive up Gunung Telapak Buruk due to forest restoration work of the initial planned route.
The route was manageable, nothing too technical, but it will be two hours before we reach the wreck site, so we entertained one another with our personal life stories to keep the morale up and momentum going.
It is back to basics when we arrive at our campsite. There are no toilets nor are there any built-up shelter. Everything had to be constructed from scratch by the local support team. It is a humbling and eye-opening experience for us city dwellers, one which we will remember for a long time.
This hike is suitable all year around and can be modified according to the difficulty level that you desire. Contact us if you are keen to explore more!
