Event description

Description

At 2,183m, Gunung Korbu is the highest peak in the Titiwangsa range and also the second highest peak in Peninsular Malaysia.

The trail starts at Ulu Kinta Dam (Empangan Sultan Azlan Shah) and the trail is about 14km. It is just about possible for very strong hikers to do Korbu as a very long dayhike, but if you want to bag nearby Gunung Gayong (2,173m) then one night camping is required because it is around 3 hours to hike the 2.5km from Korbu to Gayong and back again.

The Chuban Wall lies on the face of Puncak Chuban which is one of the many false peaks of Gunung Korbu. What makes it so challenging and nerve wrecking is that it is an almost vertical slope of granite at which if you look down you could see the more than 1000m drop down the mountain. There were fixed ropes to facilitate the climb up the Chuban Wall.

The trail: Ulu Kinta Dam (Empangan Sultan Azlan Shah) – Waterfall – Kem Seroja – Kem Kijang – Last Water Point – Botak – Korbu Peak – Gayong summit.
