There are approximately 103 peaks in N9, ranging from the small 152 metre high Mt Bertam near Kuala Pilah to the highest in the state, Mt Hantu at 1,205 metres just outside of Seremban.
One of the most popular middle of the range climbs is Mt Angsi, also near Seremban and at 825 metes is a good place to start to see how you fare before taking on others.
If mountains aren't for you then perhaps you like to explore underneath them: Interested?
