Tall jungle trees, bamboo, rattan, rivers, wild grass meadows, butterflies, tapir tracks, wild boars, shiggy piggy trails, howling gibbons and if you are lucky, a few other wiggly wild creatures.

From PJ and KL, make your way to Cheras expressway heading towards Kajang. Make sure partially renovated Phoenix Plaza (now a new name) is on your right as you head towards the first toll. At toll, pay up and '0' trip meter. About 300m after the toll turn LEFT to Ulu Langat and Pekan Batu 9. Do not use the extreme left lane on the slip road that forces you to make a sharp left turn. Drive through the village and at traffic lights at the police station turn LEFT.
Stay on this road (B52) passing mosque on the left at about 8.8km. Go straight at traffic light heading towards Pangsun. At 16km pass thru small village of Pekan Batu 18 while still going straight. About 22km watch for Hash signs. Turn left at 22.1 km and go up the steep hill to the "BIG" parking on left. Park by hash-mobile silver X-Trail WLM 9319.
From Ampang, Kepong, SierraMas, Melawati, take MRR2, find your way to Jalan Ampang going east towards Bukit Belacan, turn right on Jalan Taman Putra, follow the road and go over the hill from Ampang towards Ulu Langat Pekan batu 14. Turn left on main road (B 52) at mosque towards Pangsun. Drive 13km, turn left and park as above.
