Reason of my visit: Since I've done Gunung Ayam, I might as well do Gunung Stong too. They are like twins.

A trip Gunung Stong  .... 2nd time to BAHA camp..... ... BAHA camp is a camping group 450m ASL and the foot the Jelawang waterfall, said to be the tallest in south east asia, but I don't know how true is that... like Mount Kinabalu is said to be the tallest in SEA, but it is actually the 5th tallest after 1. Hkakabo Razi 5881m, Burma, 2. Puncak Jaya 5030m, Indonesia, 3. Trikora 4751m, Indonesia, 4. Mandala 4701m, Indonesia.

To go to BAHA, you need to first goto Jeli or Dabong at Kelantan, from there you can ask the locals how to get to BAHA....

We camped at BAHA for 2 nights and did a day trip up to Gunung Stong, I think it tools 4 hours to reach the summit. Nothing particularly nice up there, however like all mountains in Malaysia, vegetation is abundant and interesting. If you are lucky you could see hornbills flying above you ...
