My first Mountain is Mount Datok.
Introduced to Mount Climbing by Kevin Too, my brother scout.
First climb was in Year 2006. I found out that it was satisfying hobby.

Perhaps the only mountain nearby my hometown Negeri Sembilan is Mount Datok. just around 884 meter tall.

<----The Legend said that it was Datok's foot step ~ more or less the same size with my foot.Haha

Mount Datok
- has very clear natural pathway. Many people climb Mount Datok, tat's y the pathway is obvious.
- 1-2hours Climb ( depends on people) average people took 1hour 30minutes.
- Nice view
- Depends on specific time to hike. Eg : early in the morning around 7 am, there will a lot mist.
- In the afternoon, it has clear view and sometime you could see Straits Of Mallaca. Evening, - you could see nice sunset but make sure you going to overnight or you able to make it down before dark.
- However, if you climb during Jan - April, most probably it will be windy. Wind blow very strong until you can feel the force of wind pushing you.. due to the strong wind, the temperature are slightly low. enough to make you feel cold if you wearing t-shirts.

How to get there ?
- Location - Rembau
If you were driving from Kuala Lumpur, take the highway exit at Senawang ( Seremban Jaya). After the tol, drive straight and u will pass by a junction, do not turn until you reach a big cross road. At there, you will have to wait for traffic light and turn to right Heading to Rembau.
Drive along the Rembau road without turning for around 30minutes. Along the road, nothing much, most of them are Palm Oil Tree. Small Rembau town is the landmark indicate that you going to reach. Move straight and try to look for Gunung Datok signboad. The signboard will be obvious. When reach the signboard, turn into Gunung datok and you will drive along small road which just fit for 2 cars. Along the road, it is forest and there's no Lamp Post. Drive along the small road carefully until you see a small signboard that tell u to turn to Gunung Datok. The sign board will lead you to Rubber Tree. and the road just fit for 1.5 car means not enought for 2 car..... drive carefully, hon whenever you going turn. Upon reaching, you will see some big rocks.

If from Seremban, just follow the signboard to Senawang, not the Ampangan. Follow the Senawang road straight. you will pass by Seremban Garden, Bukit Emas. just move straight and tat's all until u reach Rembau small city.

If from Melaka, just follow the road to Rembau and look for any sign board.

Mount datok - A suitable mountain for beginner and ideal place to visit. It's just nice and it has nice view.
