Adventure Trips in Malaysia - G7 Mountains In Malaysia

Asia is a very popular region that is known for its vast outlands. Asia is very blessed with the abundance of nature that is build around it. In Malaysia alone there are abundance in mountains. Along the west of Malaysia there are seven mountains that hikers that love too challenge themselves will visit. The local term for it here is called the G7. The G7 are the most difficult mountains to conquer in the west of Malaysia.

There are seven mountains that are listed are:

1. Mount Tahan (7,186 Feet)

2. Mount Korbu (7,162 Feet)

3. Mount Yong Belar (7,156 Feet)

4. Mount Gayong (7,129 Feet)

5. Mount Yong Yap (7,110 Feet)

6. Mount Ulu Sepat (7,089 Feet)

In order to conquer these mountains, the hiker that is willing to accept the challenge will need to be ready to camp and face mentally challenging situations along the way. The mentally challenging situations would change and vary depending on weather conditions and wild life along the way. It is advisable to hire a guide and potter (only for hikers that are not so seasoned) to go with you along the way. It is always safer to bring an experienced local to bring you into the jungle. Its better to spend a little bit for the guide. At the same time they will be able to get some pocket money to survive.

All of the mountains that are listed above, located along the Titiwangsa Mountain. Only Mount Tahan is not along the Titiwangsa Mountain. In order to to Mount Tahan, the hiker will need to pass through numerous mountains before reaching their destination. The average time to clear all the mountains will take at least three to seven days depending on the mountain and route that are taken. There could be several routes up to the peak of the mountain. Please be sure to do the proper research that is necessary before challenging a mountain.

If the hikers manage to finish all these mountains, they will be considered very fit and experienced. It takes a lot of mental effort to go hiking on long trips. It will be good if the hiker brings along at least another two to three hikers with them. This is a very good bonding time and also it teaches the hikers how to look after all the members that are availbale in their group.

Here is a general check-list that can be used to bring to all of the mountain that are listed above. The most important will be a guide, good hiking boots, a walking stick, mosquito repellent, insect repellant, salts, tissue wipes (this is so that you will be able to wipe yourself if there is no water around), water purifier (Its always better to use this before drinking the water to protect yourself from poisoning), compass, knife, gps, tents and other essential camping items.

Have a safe trip scaling the mountains and most important be safe when scaling all these mountains
