Dear Tan Peay Mei,
There are tour companies where you can hire out day guides. You could also follow their jungle hiking tours which would be more cost effective.
1) Cameron Secret 05-491 2484
2) Kang Tours and Travel 05-491 5828
3) CS Travel
There are many other smaller tour companies, but you can try the above 3 first. Sorry I don't have CS Travel number at hand.
Thanks for your information.
Have a nice day ^^
May I know if I follow the tour to go for hiking, is it need to request a permit? Because the Pejabat Daerah Raub request permit from me.
This is the first time I ever heard about requiring a permit for hiking in the jungle. I think the Pejabat Daerah Raub is pulling a fast one on you! They must be so desparado to gleen any kind of fees from the public to resort to this. I went jungle hiking in Pangkor and never needed any. Went to some popular gunung (forget the name) in Negeri Sembilan and never applied for any permit. To go hiking just bring a good pair of hiking shoes, essential stuffs in your backpack and make sure you are fit and you are good to go! Just don't get lost and stick to the normal path!
