GA 01 | 830am Gunung AngsiImage by eddiewls via Flickr

i just barely able to walk right now...

This week, me and my friend Azim have gone to climb mount Angsi. We actually entered a race in which whoever reached the top first will get a cash prize of RM500. That is not why we entered the race though... There is no chance for us college students to win compared to those athletes who have trained vigorously for this competition.

Where is Mount Angsi?
Mount Angsi is located at the Ulu Bendul Recreational Park, Negeri Sembilan. It is about 10-20 kilometres way from Seremban on the Kuala Pilah route. i actually have no intention to go there until Azim asked me if i wanted to join him. Azim is also a blogger, click here to go to his blog..
Going there by motorcycle.... 7.15 am
we went there by motorcycle.....
I was a little cautious about this because i am notorious for falling asleep while riding a motorbike. zzzz.... No I don't sleep..

Arrived at destination... about 8.20 am
When we arrived at ulu Bendul, we settled down at a Food stall. Well.. its actually two food stall. We didn't know that until the two owner starts to argue about the food that we order. My friend accidentally ordered a Nasi lemak from the other food stall and his drink from the other one.
It's Horrible...
I also pissed off when they gave me a nasi lemak... which I didn't even order them. It seems like they are very hasty in taking the orders so that the customer won't able to order from the other food stall... Eisshhh!!
I think that they should put a fence so that the customer knows how to differentiate the two stall.

Starting point of the race, so many have come to participate in this event....

Starting point 9.30am
Nice isn't it.. I am glad that such an event got a lot of responds.. There is students, families and even athletes from countries that i don't even know came for the event. There is even a lot of cute girls here hahaha...It was an easy mountain to climbed but it became hard because we run to to reach the peak...

The climb 10 am
I ran at the first kilometres of the race. It was really tiring, but I continued on...
After i couldn't handle it anymore, I walked... i switched back to running and the rythym goes on.. running and walking...
At a certain point of the race, ive stopped for awhile to get some rest... At this time, Azim came from behind and overtook me..

Actually, ive underestimated this guy because of his frail and skinny body. But he sure got the endurance to climb this mountain alright.

Some small girls, A couple of Old men are beating me...
Wha!! I couldn't believe that this guys could catch up to me...

I was damn tired,thirsty... and my foot just couldn't move as i wanted. I suffered leg cramps that made me unable to walk properly. It makes my climb to be slower and slower....

The view from the top of Mount Angsi.. Eii.. Whose house is that?

I am at the top... 11.40am
Even with all the hardships, I have managed to get at the top of this Mountain.
What surprises me when reached the top is..............................
I've got stung by a bee!!! Ouch!!! It have been a long time since i have ever stung by one...
Anyway.. thank god i reached the top...
The view was spectacular but i coudn't managed to get a good picture of it... Sorry...

The way down.. 12pm
Eventhough i've reached the top, but the cramps still didn't go away. It is very painful continuing like this... That wasn't an obstacle anymore as a kind boy from Senawang gave me a remedial oil to ease off the strain... Miraculously it worked.. I thanked the boy and continued the way down together.. Because I was so pumped up, I eventually left him and continued climbing down the mountain in a very fast pace.
I drank some water from this small rivulet to quench my thirst. It was very refreshing....

I don't know if it was just me... but to me.. the way back down is 10 times easier than climbing up..
In my way back down, i've managed to catch up with some people who have overtook me earlier...
i've also managed to find some people who weren't able to continue the climb...

As I reached the bottom, i was kinda shocked to see that there is actually not many people who have reached the peak. I've started wandering where is the hell is the young boys... They should have been able to finished the race. What a waste of youth...

Back home 2.30 pm
Before we went back, we enjoyed ourselves bathing in the river.. The water was very cold though...

I am glad i have gone through this journey...
I have always love the beauty of the forest...
If I have the chance..
I would go there again..
Or..
Climb another mountain...

Salam Naqiubex (:-D

Guessed you love nature, ya? How about camping or trekking in Taman Negara?

naqiubex said...

taman negara.. that sounds cool..

Looks like you certainly have to work out more and improve on your fitness. You should do that more often. I hope you're not a smoker and if you are then may i suggest that quitting should be one of the main agenda to consider. The greatest & the most difficult mountain to conquer is actually the one within our own self.
