Gunung Panti Recreational Forest
Situated about 12km from the small town of Kota Tinggi is the recreational forest of Gunung Panti. The recreational forest is accessible by any modes of transportation and is only a two hour drive from the Causeway.
Many people consider Gunung Panti as a training ground for trekkers so that they may proceed to trek tougher mountains in Sabah or the Himalayas. Explorers come here to practice as well.
It will be a 2-3 hour walk to the summit, depending on one's physical condition. All there is to bring is a small backpack with food and water. Prepare to encounter the usual insects and creepy crawlies found in jungles. Which means, bring your insect repellent!
One must prepare the final 20m climb to the summit though, as the ground is rather steep. They will need equipments and the help of professionals if they are still new to trekking.
Trekkers will arrive at a beautiful camping site at the summit, and temporary accommodation is provided as well.
