Gunung Pulai is a 654 meter high hill near the city of Johor Bahru. Although “Gunung” means “mountain or Mt.” in Malay, it is technically not high enough to be regarded as a mountain.
It might be regarded as a mountain because it is the only major high point in an otherwise flat region.
Unlike Genting Highlands, Mount Pulai’s peak is not high enough for you to enjoy a cooling climate. However, its altitude does make it consistently 3 to 7 degrees cooler than at ground level, especially when you reach mid-range in the morning.
If you start your ascent early enough, you’ll enjoy a cool 25-27oC breeze, which gets even cooler during the wet season.
Location: Kulai District, Johor, Malaysia
