    Need some advice.
    I see numerous streams & river crossings.
    Guaranteed to get wet?
    Should I skip hiking boots & wear trail runners instead?
    Considering attempting it next week.

    Hey there. Do not worry about getting wet. All the streams and rivers depicted in the trail are crossable. The 2 rivers, has a bridge, for each. The only reason why I mark any of my trails with information on numbers of rivers/streams, is so that whoever downloaded my trails, knows what to expect. Thus why pictures are included. Some other trails which I've done, the river crossings can be tricky. If you have a good sense of balancing, you can easily skip & jump on the river stones. However, not all.
    In terms of hiking boots versus trail running shoes, this all depends on the person. The question of whether you're a trail runner, or an endurance hiker, like me, plays a big part in choosing the right footwear. Not just that, but also the distance, and the level of difficulty that you'll cover, in any trail you intend to partake, plays a big part. So, if you're comfortable in doing tough, long distance hikes in a trail running shoes, go nuts:) Me, personally, I prefer hi-cut hiking boots. Why? I'm not a runner, I am an endurance hiker, with heavy bagpack, especially with tough hikes. Hi-cut hiking boots helps protect my ankles from those unseen danger (wood stumps, etc) and also, maintain a good enough level of support, especially with the weight that I always carry.
    Do take note, this particular trail is quite tough, in terms of distance. However, technical difficulty, consider as moderate to hard.
    Good luck on your planned trip. Please do let your loved ones know wherever you're going. And I hope that my response helps.

    Cheers!

    P. S. : The 3rd river crossings, there's no bridge. But if you're like me, with good sense of balancing, you can easily utilize the river stones, and won't get wet, at all. If you're not, best to take your shoes off, before crossing. Trust me, wet feet, for hours on end, in the wet shoes, will be super uncomfortable.

  • Richard Lim 13-oct-2019

    Thanks! I prefer boots if possible for the same reasons, except that I prefer to lighten my load where possible.
    I only wear trail runners where I know I will get wet & time is of the essence, like in an ultra-marathon.
    Have been to Rajah day trips before, just not this route.
    Will use poles to help the balancing part.
    Will also update after my attempt!

    Did the trip as planned. Got past the death wish, saw another valley with 20 mins to 230pm cut off time. So decided to turn back. Might have managed it by 3pm if I decided to push on but better safe than sorry. Got out to the bus by 840pm. Wish we started at 6am as planned instead of 7am due to communications cock-up. Bus reached KKB at 430am but driver generously decided to let us sleep until 530am! 5/17 reached the summit. Tough hike!

    Hey there. Nevermind that you turned back. You're right. Better safe than sorry. There's always another time. Help my trail mapping helped.

  • Richard Lim 21-oct-2019

    Your map helped quite a bit. Gave me peace of mind as my tracker automatically alarms if I am more than 30m off course. It also helped on the way back - the default path to the inner bridge was flooded but your map indicated an alternate route that was not full flooded...

    Nice. Happy to help. My wife/hiking partner always hiss at me, whenever I stop to mark anything on any trail I was mapping. But she understood that it'll go a long way, for others.
    All the best!

    He realizado esta ruta  ver detalle

    Went to this trail with guides. Trail mostly followed the tracklog.
    I turned back after the last check point before the summit but was later sad to read that I was actually less than 20 mins from the summit!
    Some parts of the trail were very hard to locate.

    Here's the great thing about wikiloc, or any other mapping apps. You can actually gauge how many distance left before reaching your intended target. I've long ignored "unwelcomed, unsolicited advice" from other trekkers, on the way up, because they gauge the balance of distance that you still have to cover, based on their speed/strength. No one is ever the same. Just one click on the bottom half of the screen, and you'll know how much you still have left.
    As I've always said, even to others, and myself, "there's always another time".
    Cheers!

    Nice tip! However, I was using your gpx on A-GPS Tracker as it gives off track warnings. Unfortunately, A-GPS Tracker does not have that feature - though interestingly, my F5X does have something to that effect (but only if I split the tracks into up & down segments), as it does show distance to end point.
    Still, I guess I now have a reason to upgrade to Wikiloc Pro. :)
