Gunung Nuang Trail Running

While approaching the Pondok at the end of the never-ending road this morning (5 July 2014), I could hear the roar of the water cascading down the rapids. During the dry spell, how could the roar be so load. While approaching the first stream crossing, we (Wilson Liew, Jia Hao) could see the stream was swelled with water.

The scenario was totally different from the dry season that we experience in Kuala Lumpur for the past few weeks. We were told that the night before, it was raining heavily in Gunung Nuang. 

There was no way we could cross the four streams by maintaining the shoes dry. We just walked into the water.

The trail was muddy and slippery; with the wet shoes, that was extra tough for the training. Besides, after the rain, the trail was infested with leeches! I was attacked by five leeches. At one point, I could see a leech, stretching as long as 2 inches, extend into the air getting ready to pound on any human beings that went near.

I slipped and fell at one point when descending from Kem Pacat to Kem Lolo. I was looping between these two points. During the second descent, I slipped and fell also. When I turned around, I realised that it was the exact spot! 

TonyQ booked two chalets at the carpark of Gunung Nuang for those who are training for 100km in preparation for TMBT on 16 August 2014. We shall repeat the training on 26 July, Saturday.
