Gunung Tok Wan @ Semenyih

Decide to go Gunung Tok Wan on last year, as training for coming Mountain Rinjani trip at Indonesia in September 2013. Gunung Tok Wan might be familiar to those that went to Broga Hill before, because when you reach the top of Broga Hill, you will see a signboard that point to the trail of Gunung Tok Wan. The trail is pretty straight forward, but i’ll still advise to ask a person that been there to lead you for the first time.

First peak of broga hill, crowded as usual, hard to get a single person shot on a weekend. For Sunrise potrait shot, remember to bring your external flash or use internal flash to capture, else you have a darkish face on your subject.

One big different you will discover between Broga hill and Gunung Tok wan’s path, is the number of visitors, we met not more than twenty peoples along the path. Gives you a piece of mind after the crowded and noisy Broga hill path.

Thanks to the friendly couple for helping us to take a nice and only group photo. The top are revered by plants, no nice scenery around. There seems to be another path that leads to another mountain, but we

Ah I missed out Gunung Tok Wan yesterday when I went to Broga Hill. But on the contrary, I just came back from Mt Rinjani weeks ago, now I am just looking for some trails with good views. (You could check out my instagram for Mt Rinjani pictures!)
