Gunung Belumut (1010m) is a popular
destination for trekkers mainly from Singapore and
Malaysia. Located at the eastern part of Johore,
some 18 km away from Kluang town, it amazes every
visitor with its untouched forest and superb views
from the summit. I have trekked up Belumut 3 times
and every time was a brand new experience with many
fond memories. I was there once a year since 2002.
I hope the photos will amaze all viewers and hope
you get to experience what I experienced on this
photo was taken from a village near to Belumut.
Usually people will not be able to see the
mountain but I was lucky that day to be able
to snap a shot of the beautiful mountain catching
a breath from the clouds.
Waterfall near campsite
waterfall is where everyone can get to have
some splashing and washing. It is located
about 100m away from the campsite in the middle
of the mountain. The natural water comes from
rain collected on Belumut and it can send
chill down your spine literally. People planning
to visit the waterfall should be warned that
certain parts may be deep and unsafe.
before the summit
you have noticed what could be growing from
the mosses? Yes, they are corybas, an extremely
minute orchid that produces the most bazzar
flower you can ever imagine. Unfortunately
i did not see any flowers at that time. It
usually hides in the mosses and sometimes
they appear to get some tan.
from the top
the Sun rises
under the cold stary night just to catch the
first rays of warmth from the sun is simply
an amazing experience. Watching how the rays
slowly brighten up the land. I strongly recommend
all visitors to stay at the summit for the
night and wait for this very moment. Until
now i still misses the sunrise at belumut.
watching the sunrise, it was time to pack
our tents and bags and head back down. Usually
after a tiring trek down the mountain I would
sit in the cold river water to clean and to
heal my sore muscles at the foot of Belumut.
Hope all viewers enjoyed the photos and my
written experiences from Belumut. Take care!
