Not sure why trek 7 is grouped with 5, as they are all different. Loved the trek down - went up trail 3 and down trail 7 to end at MARDI (pass on that, can check my review out there under MARDI). Probably takes 3-4...More

Nice jungle walk with lots of nature! But do not go the Nr. 7 path uphill, downhill is much more quitable. Nr. 5 path uphill is exhausting enough :-)

We found this trail easily in MARDI, past a couple of steep roads. Trail no. 5 had 4 dogs at the beginning, which ran away after seeing us (we enquired and they said they would not bite). We went halfway up the trail no. 5,...More

We did trails 7 (up) and 3 + 5 (down). The path is quite overgrown in the beginning and very steep for several hundreds of meters, so be prepared for a challenge. At times it is more than a climb than a hike, but nonetheless...More

Other than finding our way by foot to Tanah Rata, using these trails, and booking our bus out, it really wasn't worth it. We had really high hopes and were disappointed, especially by how much litter we saw and how close at points you felt...More

We were nervous having heard mixed reviews buts it's very simple! Definitely worth it. Simple to navigate from the town centre. Towards MARDI, then head to the 'English cottage' and along the rd, you'll come to a junction and head toward Camelia apartments. Along the...More
