This was our starting point, called the Kebun Bunga Trail.

To be clear, we started and ended at a different spot due to some miscommunication with the land owner. Our starting point was at the entrance of a privately owned farm, which in simple terms is the easier route. It takes only 40 minutes walk to reach the entrance of the forest, called “Pintu Rimba”. The walk is rather picturesque, with vegetables on your left mountains on your right.

The view here is pretty amazing. Stop for some photos while you’re at it.

From “Pintu Rimba”, it’s a one way street into the forest with slight elevation and tonnes of roots to beware of. There are no huge river crossings at Gunung Yong Belar trail, so yes, you can keep your shoes pretty dry if you are good enough. The trail is not extensively steep and is still very well kept in terms of trail condition. The first camp site, “Kem Tudung Periuk” is about 3 hours away from the Pintu Rimba point. It’s a large clear area which can easily fit 40 – 50 people.

Signage at Kem Tudung Periuk. Beautiful huge area in the forest of Yong Belar.

We stopped and took our lunch at Kem Tudung Periuk before moving on. There is a stream further down the trail so if you are planning to finish whatever water ration that you have left, by all means because you can fill it back once you start moving. After Kem Kasut, the trail resumes a up and down gradient with a few false peak. Take a break at the false peak and admire the beauty of the mountain ranges there. The Gunung Yong Belar trail offers you view unlike any other mountains in Malaysia. Don’t rush through things. There are plenty of time for you to set up your tent.

Kem Kasut, the second campsite along the trail is 3 hours away from Kem Tudung Periuk. Slightly smaller than Kem Tudung Periuk, this clearing can fit about 20 – 30 people. We had 27 people and it fits perfectly fine (we even had a team pitch up a fly as their kitchen, which produces amazing smell might I add). By the time we reach Kem Kasut, it was about 4pm. Being one hour away from the summit, we could shoot up to the peak on the same day of course but setting up the tent and calling it a day seems to be a wiser choice. Oh and yes, you can camp at the summit but it’s not really recommended because:

  1. Strong winds
  2. It’s pretty cold up there
  3. Thunderstrikes
  4. Lack of water source

So, if you want a comfortable camping experience, do it at Kem Kasut. So for our team, it’s Kem Kasut and we will be shooting for the peak the next morning (5.30am)

The campsite at Kem Kasut can be pretty “rooty” but spacious nonetheless

If you ever wonder why they call it Kem Kasut, well…

The next morning, we took off with our headlights at 5.30am and headed for the summit. Estimated time was 1 hour and we made it averagely within an hour. Unfortunately for us, the sun was blocked by thick clouds although our team waited for almost an hour up there in the strong wind and bone chilling cold.

Don’t forget the “I’ve made it” picture up there.

We made our way back to the camp site and reach by 8.30am, more or less. The road down was way easier considering it’s already bright and you can see without your headlamps. Packed up, fueled and recharged, we made our way out of the forest, the same way we came in.

Everyone’s packing up and ready to take off.

Exiting from the same way, it took us roughly 5 hours to reach to Pintu Rimba where we entered but instead of getting picked up from our original starting point, we had to endure another 2 hours of trail because of some miscommunication with the land owner. Well, for cases like this, there is no point fighting. Whatever happens, keep walking and it will be over. We’re hikers and hikers don’t complain.

So the other trail that I mentioned here is the original entry trail of Gunung Yong Belar, called, the pipe trail, for obvious reasons, because it consists of pipes, a lot of pipes. It’s a very slippery trail, so watch your steps here. The trail is not very long but because you are taking small cautious steps here, it might take a bit of time (2 hours for our case)

These pipes don’t interlock tightly, so when you step on one, it might move and slip away. Becareful here.

After like an endless run of pipes, you will reach the final part of the trail, the stairs. Here’s a tip for the stairs. Walk sideways. It’s easier. The steps are pretty small therefore walking sideway gives you more balance and speed.

Walk sideways like the lady in blue behind. It’s slightly easier.

After the stairs, you will see something that you have been longing to see the whole day, your pickup vehicles! That’s the end of your trail. Rejoice, pat yourself on the back and take as much pictures as you want because this will be a memory to cherish!

Mandatory completion selfie!

So, if you are planning to hike Gunung Yong Belar, use this as a rough guide and prepare well. As you can see, the trail is not easy, that’s for sure but if you prepare well, it can be very enjoyable. Hope this serves your well.

Have any questions? Leave it at the comment section below and I will be more than glad to assist you if possible.

  6. Mike Chu says:

    Oh I do have a guide actually. It’s not safe to trek Yong Belar without a guide. Let me know if you need the guide’s contact. I can be contacted at 0164221018.

    – Mike

  7. Bernard says:

    Hi. Looks like you do not have a guide. How do u find your way to the peak? Is the signs and markers?

  8. Mike Chu says:

    Step 1: Download the application form at this link: http://forestry.pahang.gov.my/download/Muat-turun/Borang-Permohonan-Permit-Memasuk-HSK-Pahang.pdf, print and fill in the form accordingly

    Step 2: Download the application letter at this link: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/82pgrr46ka2mn5v/AAAs82z08EmToERFHvMh1aE-a?dl=0 and edit the necessary information inside: Formal Letter / Surat Rasmi

    Step 3: Head to the nearest post office and purchase your Wang Pos or your nearest bank to purchase your bank draft. Remember, the permit costs only RM5.

    ATTN: Make sure the bank draft/wang pos is issued under the name PENGARAH PERHUTANAN NEGERI PAHANG

    Step 4: By now, the documents that you should have would be the Application Form, Formal Letter and also your bank draft/wang pos. If that is correct, then the next step is to put everything in an envelope and courier it to the below address:

    For Yong Belar, send to:

    Pegawai Hutan Daerah
    Pejabat Perhutanan Daerah Raub Dan Cameron Highland,
    Rotan Tunggal, 27600 Raub, Pahang
    Contact: 093551060

    Then follow up after a week

  9. Mike Chu says:

    No problem bro. Be safe, have fun and don’t litter. That way, our forest will be forever clean.

    – Mike

  10. Mike Chu says:

    Hey! Assuming that you are staying for a night, 40L will be good enough. I bought a 40L previously as well. One set of clothes to change, sleeping bag, fleece and food. Try not to bring too much. It’s camping anyway, not glamping. 😀

    Betul. Tak jauh dari trek kebun. Pastu lepas paip, turun tangga, sampai gathering point.

    Hi there! Rubber shoes should be no problem. The trails are very nice here so I wouldn’t worry too much. I did it with my booths though.

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for sharing.
    I’m planning to do Yong Belar this weekend.
    I was wondering if you could tell me how you arranged the 4×4.

    Thanks.
