Moreover, the haze situation in Klang Valley was getting worse with ongoing dry spells. So I guessed it was about time for me to go for a quick runcation/getaway from the neverending haze.
So in total there were 15 runnners/bloggers for preview route mission. We took FireFly to Langkawi on Saturday. It was my first time moment too flying with FireFly from Subang Airport (SZB).
|Safely landed at Langkawi International Airport.... Excited xhengat nih...|
|We came, We see, We will conquer this 4,287 steps tomorrow! Today was just for sightseeing only hehe =)|
|Our home for one night stay there.... Super comfy bed & spacious twin beds room....|
|We could see Pulau Dayang Bunting from the balcony of GeoPark Inn... Super awesome scenery|

|Thank you so much Marathonbaker Runbananaz & Syco Bar Energy Bars for fuelling me up along the challenging climb...|
All in all, I had so much fun time traversing the trails of Hutan Simpan Lubuk Semilang via 4,287 stairs Tangga Helang Seribu Kenangan. It felt like climbing the iconic KL Towerthon twice! Hahaa... Minus the stuffiness claustrophobic suffocating climb. Hehee... I love the beauty of Mother Nature here...Even pictures won't do justice... You have to come here to experience it yourself.
