Gunung Arong Recreational Forest
As you walk through the lush greenery of this tropical rainforest you are serenaded by the beguiling symphony of the nature. Gunung Arong Recreational Forest offers a refreshing change of scene from the beaches and clear blue waters normally associated with Mersing.
This reserve offers jungle trekking at low difficulty levels while still allowing you to enjoy the ambiance of the forest environment. Visitors can enjoy a picnic by a small waterfall before continuing to the summit of the mountain which boasts panoramic views of the surrounding forest and the ocean. Taking the coastal trekking route involves wading through water as well as walking over boulders and small wooden bridges, so it is best avoided for those looking for a simpler walk. A permit to climb the mountain for 15 people would set you back RM150 but you will have to pay extra if you’re looking to camp in the forest overnight.
