Gunung Ayam 1,504m is located in Kelantan, 5 hours drive from Butterworth, Penang.
From Grik to Jeli then to the base of Jelawang waterfall is where we started the hike up to this very beautiful mountain. It takes approximately 1-2 hours to hike from the park entrance to Baha’s camp (the base camp) and another 5-6 hours to the summit of Gunung Ayam. We camped at the false peak and visit the summit the next morning.
Most of the trekkers will set their base camp at the top of Jelawang waterfall to have a easy journey. The junction to G.Ayam 1,504m & G.Stong 1,433m at one hour distance after the Base camp. The trek to Gunung Ayam is more challenging and arduous than Gunung Stong trek because take about 3 hour to the summit of Gunung Stong but 6 hour to the top of Gunung Ayam.
These pictures were taken at Gunung Ayam Kelantan during my hiking trip there. Gunung Ayam has these very unique Ferns(蕨类植物的叶子) growing near the summit region, I have not seen these type of fern else where so far...
