TRAIL

The trailhead is located inside the “Tan’s Camellia Garden”. A white bungalow will be spotted and the trailhead starts from the path located on the left of the bungalow. The hiking distance is approximately 1.8km and it takes about slightly more than an hour to reach the summit.

Besides a little navigation is needed to find the trailhead, the trail is relatively well marked with signboards and some instructions left behind by fellow hikers. Do note that trail 11 is closed (updated on 3rd Oct 2015) due to blockage of the trail by the fallen trees.

Nearing to the summit, an electric tower will be seen with a 180 degrees view of the Ringlet town and Bharat tea plantation. The summit is marked by 2 square stones and a signboard “Gunung Jasar 1696M”, which is about 5 min away from the electric tower.
