Gunug Korbu 2nd highest mountain in Peninsula Malaysia

Just 3 meters lower than Gunung Tahan. Gunung Korbu is resting along with many other 2000m peaks along the Titiwangsa range stretching along state borders of Kelantan, Pahang and Perak.

You can climb Korbu from Tanjung Rambutan, Ipoh, Perak which takes about 2 or 3 days to reach the summit. Or consider a more challenging trek starting from Tanah Rata, Cameron Highlands, Pahang. The trek from Cameron Highlands is a traverse trek across Gunung Yong Blar (7156ft) and Gunung Gayong (7156ft), 3rd and 4th highest in Peninsula Malaysia respectively.

This was taken in between Korbu & Gayong in the morning at about 9am.

For first and two hours trekking is more easier and will cross a few river, after the easy trekking have to ascend until the first camp site which is the way slightly steep and need about four hours to reach the first camp site.The sightseeing along the way to first camp site there were have many durian tree, rambutan tree, coconut tree, petai tree and huge tree can be seen.

When reach the first camp site, there will still need 5 hours trekk to summit. Before one hour to summit the way is very steep almost 80 degree and a lot of tree root you could hold in order to climb up.

Actually when trekking along the first camp site have to take note to avoid lost in jungle. If raining season, there will have many leeches, mosquitoes and sand fly will sleep with you, well need to prepare mosquitoes coins.

Ascend to the summit of Korbu there have two trails, one is from Gunung Gayong and another one is from Tanjung Rambutan water dam.
