  • Gunung Ledang - Located about 30 km from Muar town, Gunung Ledang (formerly Mt Ophir) is well known for the Legend of Gunung Ledang story of the mystique Puteri Gunung Ledang, entwined with its mysterious tales of supernatural encounters among the locals besides its beautiful natural attraction. Standing at 1,267m, Gunung Ledang is Johor's highest mountain and it can be accessed both from Johor (Sagil) and Melaka (Asahan). There are nice camping sites by the side of waterfall at the mountain foot and those who are adventurous can take up the challenges to climb to the peak of the mountain. The journey to the top will take approximately five hours through the dense but scenery virgin jungle. There are 2 options of access to the mountain top and mountain foot lodgings available by 2 different managements namely; Gunung Ledang Resort [1] [formerly dead link] and Taman Hutan Lagenda-Taman Negara Gunung Ledang [2] [dead link]. Gunung Ledang can be reached by buses that run between Tangkak and Segamat by getting off at Sagil. Its best to arrive at Gunung Ledang during daylight hours, stay overnight and start the hike early next morning.
