Description 

The amount of rock in this area is astounding, unfortunately for climbers most of the real-estate has been taken by temples covering the base of the best limestone. If this doesn't deter you from climbing the heat and humidity might. If you are still psyched then bring some bolts because there is not much open ground. The Lost World of Tambun is the only developed place that is easily accessible but will run you some RM$.

Getting There 

It is about 2.5 hours North of Kuala Lumpur on the North South Highway.
