Amid the hustle and bustle of city life, we embark on a journey to the outdoors, out of our comfort zones, and into the warm embrace of Mother Nature in the form of Gunung Stong. Standing at 1422m, Gunung Stong has been a favourite trekking destination of tourists and locals alike. Its flora and fauna, coupled with a refreshing waterfall, provides affirmation that we made the right choice.
Our journey began when we embarked on the KTM train from JB to Dabong Train Station. The 11hour train journey felt mundane, but spirits were high and we spent the time engaging our brains in a game of bridge.
