The Mount Batukaru six hour trek is a jungle trek for those who would like to experience the mountain forest without having to include the steep and most difficult part of the mountain. This trek is also an alternative to the Summit trek when weather conditions are too uncertain. This six hour trek incorporates the jungle mountain climb and the rice field trek.
Starting from 700m the trek will climb to 1400m, about 2 hours through the forest. Your guide will point out amazing plant life, beautiful butterflies and, if the forest allows, monkeys and the Kijang that live here. Lunch is provided after the mountain trek, then we proceed to the Rice fields.
The changing landscape as you climb the mountain is evident in the flora and fauna. Moss, prehistoric tree ferns, wildflowers, creepers, orchids, butterflies and many birds can be seen in the moist primary forest (mountain forest).
