Suicidal Ride Up Kedah's Gunung Jerai

by mdakhirs

Out of curiosity we went up this mountain. The orginal idea was to take this "leisurely ride in a re-conditioned Land Rover...fresh mountain air... bla bla.. " which i read somewhere in a tourist voucher. But it didnt materialise. The situation at the foothill was very much different transportation wise. There were only factory vans. After travelling all the way from Alor Setar we had no choice to go ahead. 100 meters up the mountain i started questioning my sanity for subjecting my entire family to this misadventure. The van was like falling apart everytime it took a sharp bend. There were at least 30 sharp corners before we even reach the top. Not mentioning there was this 200 meter of gorge waiting for a slight mistake.. sometimes it was less than 2 meters away from the road side. We were quite speechless during the 30 minute ride.

However once at the top we were awarded with cool mountain air, gentle sunshine and blooming flowers. The surrounding was so peaceful as wind was blowing non stop through the pine trees. The green Kedah Plain was right at our feet, dotted by puffy cottony clouds. Nini was having a real fun running through the colourful garden.....

For a while we forgot that we have to go down again..

Gunung Keriang is a limestone outcrop in the middle of flatland of padi (rice) fields in Alor Setar. It just seem to come out of nowhere with no surrounding hills or other formations. Just 10 minutes drive from downtown Alor Setar. It is very accessible and part of the hill area have been developed as a recreation area whereby juggle tracking and camping are the most favourite activies of its visitors. You can practically drive right to the foot of some climbing routes. Cave explorers would find Gunung Keriang an added adventure that is worth an experience. The history (legend) of Gunung Keriang is quite an interesting one. It is reputed to be alive and rotates every year until the English pegs it.

The Bujang Valley or Lembah Bujang is a historical complex and has an area of approximately 224 square km. Situated near Merbok, Kedah, between Gunung Jerai in the north and Muda River in the south, it is the richest archaeological area in Malaysia.

Archaeological research indicates that there was an old Hindu-Buddhist empire built here. The name itself is roughly translated into "Dragon Valley". The area consists of ruins that may date more than 1,500 years old. More than fifty ancient tomb temples, called candi, have also been unearthed, many of which were built during the Bujang Valley civilization's heyday. The most impressive and well-preserved of these is located in Pengkalan Bayang Merbok. The Bujang Valley Archaeological Museum is also located here.

Lembah Bujang Archaeological Museum also displays artifacts including pottery shards, ceramics and stoneware which dates back 1,500 years. Chinese porcelain, stone carvings, Indian tridents and gemstones from the Middle East.
