Owner description: OpenSkyUnlimited brings you to trails with breathtaking scenery of mountains, beautiful waterfalls, pristine and clear river streams near Kuala Lumpur. A choice of 1-hour hikes to waterfalls, or 2 to 8-hour hikes up a mountain, trails are less than 2-hour drives from Kuala Lumpur City. Of course, every hike is different, from terrain to landscapes to scenery and even sounds you will hear. Those who enjoy trails may also choose trails with waterfalls, camping, rock-climbing, abseiling or river-trekking. Trips are guided by chatty & experienced guides with Wilderness First Responder qualifications.

Ben was super communicative, amiable and knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions we had about just about anything. Hike was moderately easy, but he clearly demonstrates how to do any more difficult section.

It's a great opportunity for anyone who wants to go off-road and do something the greater part of tourists won't experience.

Finished by some delicious local cuisine after the trek, I highly recommend this tour!

Amos was truly professional, they pick you up direct from your hotel, he even loaned me a backpack since I didn't bring one on my trip. I did the Dragonback trek, which requires only moderate fitness but even if you're feeling insecure, Amos will reassure you and help with the difficult bits. There's a few steep climbs and some awkward scrambling up jagged rocks but they provide gloves so your hands don't get cut. Amos is very knowledgable and motivating so the trek feels fun, organised and safe. The views are stunning and absolutely worth the hike up the ridge to get there. We encountered monkeys and heard gibbons far away so it felt like a real jungle trek. I would very very happy to go again on another hike with OpenSky, it was worth every penny!

A wonderful experience for me and my fourteen years old daughter. The sparkling waterfall was the highlight of our Malaysia vacation.
Not too difficult a climb as Ben was there to guide us perfectly.
Both the breakfast and lunch were delicious.A must do trip for those looking for something other than shopping and typical touristy stuff. Do wear comfortable shoes and take the walking stick Ben will offer you.

The DragonBack Trek is a very interesting trek. We started early one morning with a super good guide - helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. He deepened the experience by telling us about everything from nature, animals to Malaysia

We did the dragon back trek. Beforehand we were a bit afraid that it might be too difficult but the guide Ben was there the whole time showing us exactly where to place our hands and feet on the more difficult parts of the trek. As previous reviewers have said, the first 30-40 mins are the the toughest and after that it is fairly easy. So just keep pushing on and you will get rewarded with fantastic views once you reach the peaks. On one side you have the city and on the other you get great views of a lake down below. All in all it took us 2.5-3h to complete the trek. Afterwards Ben took up a changing tent so we could switch to dry clothes and then we went for a delicious local breakfast. Especially liked the sweet roti kaya :) Ben as a guide is great and easy too get conversation going with. Finally I would just like to say that this was an amazing experience and hoping to come back in the future for more trekking!
