MY20190323-Sunrise at Datuk with Melaka Food Paradise

Mount Datuk is one of a favorite place for nature lovers and adventure seekers to capture a sunrise over such a short hike. It holds many treasures of the natural tropical rainforest. As you can see in the picture, there’s a formation of big rocks at the summit.

The trail is not so tough that from Intake/Starting Point, it takes about 2-3 hours for a non-hiker to reach the summit. Regular hiker that is fit enough easily can make it in 1hour 30mins to the summit. Some part of the trail section is steep but it can easily climbed over a slow walk up.
