If you want to try out something refreshing for the mind and body. Ulu Bendol Recreation Park which is located some 18km from Kuala Pilah or about 25km south of Seremban on the road leading towards Kuala Pilah, is a perfect escapade for you. It is cool and peaceful and has lots of space for picnickers.
"Ulu Bendol Recreation Park is one of the six recreational parks in Negeri Sembilan developed for tourism purposes. Picnic lovers should find this place inviting because of its shady and leafy surroundings. The refreshing and cool water from the stream that meanders through the park offers a fun place for visitors bent on having a dip.
Not far away from this fine spot, for those who are a little bit more adventurous, going for a hike up to Gunung Angsi is a great experience. Gunung Angsi, or Mount Angsi, one of the attractions at Ulu Bendol Recreational Forest, stands at 825m above sea level and takes about three to four hours to climb. The climb takes you through a 4.5km route that trails the Batang Terachi River. Surrounded by other mountains such as Gunung Telapak Buruh, Gunung Berembun, Gunung Dato' and Gunung Tampin, the view on top of Gunung Angsi certainly makes the climb worth it. Every step there is to make to the top is sheer pleasure as you will find lots of beautiful birds, lizards and sometimes snakes that you hardly find elsewhere.
To savor the best out of this park, visitors may prefer to stay at the specially designated camping grounds or rent one of the chalets in the park. Chalets and A-shaped huts range around RM 19 to RM 30 per night. The Forestry Department in charge of Ulu Bendol is intent on making sure that Ulu Bendol forest remains pristine. So beware of the RM500 fine for littering, and please be a responsible visitors at Ulu Bendol - Take nothing but pictures, and leave nothing but footprints!"
I been there once for a short rest on the way of driving back to Kuala Lumpur city from Kuala Pilah, it's refreshing for my mind and body because of its shady and leafy surroundings. Yet, I never have a chance to challenge the peak of the Gunung Angsi, I'm telling myself I will be back for the Gunung Angsi one day, I guess it's worth that I will be rewarded with the view of the whole Seremban Town once I'm at the peak of it, am I right?
