Gunung Ledang/ Mount Ophir is a popular hiking destination for amateurs or first time hikers.
Situated in Malaysia. Gunung Ledang is only 1,276 m but it is the highest mountain in Johor. It is an achievable day hike of around 4 hours up and 3 hours down, peppered with the thrill of some ladders and rope sections but nothing too dangerous.
It is a 1 day itinerary but it can be extended to combine with a trip to Malacca or Johor Bahru.
