|Sunrise at G. Hantu Besar summit at 7ish am, taken by CK|
Location: Titi, Negeri Sembilan
Why I choose G. Hantu Besar: It was quoted by a friend, Selon that it has nice view, but other's album does not show anything interesting except orchids. I missed this trip several times, and this time not to be missed and see for myself what is so special.

The journey down the trail wasn't difficult, but it was dangerous trek down to Lata Kijang waterfall as it was very slippery that my Kg. Adidas shoes could slide down. I had to hold to trees and walking stick to balance myself for 30 minutes, and the next thing is long steel staircase that turned run down due to being hit by fallen tree. We took refresher at Lata Kijang waterfall, the tallest waterfall in N9 at 380 feet while waiting for the rest. We made another climb over steps and tar road trek for 20 minutes where our truck arrived. A family of 4 with two kids aged 10 and 7 used the other exit that we originally used. It rained again at 4.30pm when the family trekkers arrived, and we were once again under the downpour for another 1 hour cramped truck ride!
