Luit Waterfall

I hope I got the name right. I couldn’t get a result when searching for this waterfall on Google. I visited Luit Waterfall in the beginning of this month.

Luit is a nice waterfall, consisting of two cascading falls. There is a big pool below the fall, probably 20 meters in both length and width. I was too busy taking photos that I didn’t have time to wade in the pool.

The entrance of Luit Waterfall is located along B55 trunk road after Kuala Kubu Baru. As you drive along B55 towards Fraser Hills, turn off right at Kampung Pertak and drive on for 500m. The trail to Luit Waterfall is the same as to Bukit Kutu, before diverting left. (Please refer to map attached)

The trek was quite easy, gradual gradient. Although the trail isn’t steep, it is not a short hike. The waterfall is quite deep in. As we got deeper into the jungle, the trail became less and less distinct. We had difficulties finding our way.

Trails near waterfalls or rivers are infamous for leaches. True enough, there were armies of leaches along the trail! I was bitten four times! How nasty!

We took 3 hours to trek to the waterfall and 2 hours to return. Net ascension is 430 meters and trek distance is 7.4 km

G Chamah Boring Road Profile

You can see how crazily steep the ‘boring road’ is. We were actually luckily that the 4*4 could bring us that far in. The 4*4 trail was actually logging road. But, logging operation had stopped near Rekum orang asli village. Therefore, the road is no longer used and maintained. So, if you are planning to climb G Chamah, do so fast, or else you might need to walk further.

G Chamah Map (Overall)

From the map, you can see how far the 4*4 trucks took us in. Without them, I think you will need an additional of 2 days of walking in and out the logging road.

Mount Korbu & Gayong – Map and Profile

Here are the map and the profile of the Trail to Mount Korbu (2,183 metres, 2nd highest mountain in West Malaysia) and Mount Gayong (2,173 metres, 4th highest mountain in west Malaysia) via Ulu Kinta, Perak.

Mount Gayong is only 2 hours walk from Mount Korbu. The scenery on the way to Mount Gayong from Mount Korbu is very nice.

The maps and profiles are recorded using a handheld Garmin GPS. Click on the images for a larger view.

I hope that the map and the profile would be useful to other hikers who plan to climb up this two mountains. But, I do not hold any responsibility to the accuracy of the map and the profile.

Photos and stories on future posts… Stay tune..
