Next on our list, is Panorama Hill (Bukit Panorama); located in Sungai Lembing, Pahang. Now this place should be familiar to most hikers, but for those of you who don’t know, Panorama Hill is an easy hiking trail that is much beloved by tourists and locals alike. It gets super busy on the weekends and during public holidays though, so if you can manage it, try coming on a weekday to avoid getting jostled about in the crowd.
The way up to the top of the hill is via a set of steep stairs that are kept well maintained by the folks of Sungai Lembing. It’s even equipped with a holding rail in the middle so you’ll have some support when you make your climb. Once you reach the top, you’ll be rewarded with an amazing view of a sea of clouds, rolling gently over lush, green foliage.
For all you morning people, Panorama Hill also offers some spectacular views of the sunrise . Just make sure to head up early enough to catch it! If you start climbing up at around 5 am to 5.30 am, you’ll be able to get up in time with plenty of breaks in between to catch your breath!
