One of Johor’s hidden gems is Gunung Lambak. This small mountain lies in a beautiful recreational park and is perfect for hiking. Gunung Lambak should be on your priority list if you are looking for a place in Johor to work out your lower body muscles and build endurance.
Gunung Lambak is a great workout
There are different ways of experiencing Gunung Lambak. At the start, the paths are paved, and many people use them for a gentle stroll and workout.

A walk to the summit and back on the same route takes around 2-3 hours.
Though it’s only 510m (1670ft) in height, there are four prominent features on Gunung Lambak that will make the fittest hikers work out a bucket of sweat if they were to attempt all four features all in one session.
