A brisk climb up Mount Jagoi

By Ava Lai

The breathtaking view at the rest stop at the mountain.

KUCHING: Locals might be more familiar with Mount Singai or Mount Serapi as a hot hiking spot but Mount Jagoi or Bung Jagoi, as it is known in the Bidayuh language, is a perfect spot for beginners to hike or jungle trek.

I took the opportunity to spend my Saturday in a rather meaningful way by going hiking with more than 20 students from SMK Sungai Tapang, the first International Baccalaureate school in Malaysia, as a volunteer for their Girls Brigade outing at this lesser known mountain near the Sarawak-Kalimantan border.
