The start is from the car park of the Taman Rimba and the route is follow the tar road, then cement steps till the laterite path is reached at the top of the stairs with the stream to one’s right. Then follow the laterite path winding gently upwards till Simpang/Junction8, continue along the narrow path some 50 metres before beginning to start climbing up the side of the ridge connecting Batu Feringghi to Bukit Laksamana. The next landmark is Simpang/Junction 12 where one takes the right to get to Laksamana in another 2 hours passing by RG14, RG13, a narrow steep ridge before arriving at the viewing platform of Bukit Laksamana.
