Gunung Arong Recreational Forest is a forest reserve in Mersing District, Johor. Visitors to Gunung Arong Recreational Forest can enjoy the stream that runs through the forest. At the peak, hikers are rewarded with magnificent panoramic views of the South China Sea and its neighboring islands. On a clear weather, you can see Pulau Tioman too. This is a 2 hour hike up the 255 metres high Gunung Arong Forest Reserve Mountain.
See this video for the view at the summit.
After the climb, we will chill out at Tanjung Resang Beach. Tanjung Resang beach is normally subjected to rough waves and wind. But the sombre tone of the sand which matches the wild nature of this spot makes it a popular destination.
We will have a meal before we come back to Singapore.
