Thirty members of Kelab Kembara Kita (KKK), led by group leader Ms Syahidatul Akmar successfully overcame the rigorous and treacherous hike to Gunung Siku in Cameron Highlands.
With the help of 3 guides, the group embarked on its journey in the wee hours of the morning from UniKL RCMP in Ipoh, stopped at Masjid Long Tan, Lojing in Kelantan for subuh prayers, before continuing the hike up Gunung Siku at 8 am.
Although the trail varied with levels of difficulty, we were nevertheless rewarded with imbibing fresh air and picturesque moss gardens along the way. It was like a fairyland! The summit of Gunung Siku is 1,900m above sea level and we reached our destination at precisely 11 am.
After a short respite, embracing the beauty of the surrounding green hills and the freshness of the cold breeze, we descended and reached our starting point at 2.30pm. However, along the way home, we did some shopping at the ‘The Stop Centre’ by pampering ourselves with strawberries, ice-creams, and souvenirs.
An elated field trip project manager, Ahmad Ruzaini Jalani, who is pursuing a diploma program in pharmacy, said the climb up Gunung Siku has been a memorable experience.
