Breathtaking views on this amazing hike which were only made better by our wonderful guide and delicious Malaysian breakfast. Such a special and treasured experience for me and my husband on our honeymoon. Thank you for everything Ben!

This was a highlight of our trip to KL for my girlfriend and I. The trek was great, views from the too were beautiful, the group we were with were a lot of fun, and Amos was a great guide. He was always attentive, making sure everyone was safe, ready to go on, and he was knowledgeable about any questions we had. The breakfast we had post-trek was delicious as well and Amos did a fantastic job, again, of explaining the different foods.

Definitely recommend trekking with Open Sky if you're ever in KL. If I make a trip back to KL, I'll definitely be doing the other hike they offer.

What a phenomenal experience!
Mar 2020 • Couples
Normally doing all our trekking ourselves, we were initially unsure about whether or not we needed a guide, but after researching a bit more about the trek we realised it was a must.

After going through the trek, this was even more apparent! Ben is a fantastic guide, extremely friendly and informative. It felt just like trekking with our friends at home. He was sure to provide us with healthy snacks and great when pointing out where it was safe to climb, and where we should not go on the track.

He was happy for us to stop and admire the view, take photographs and we did not feel rushed at all. A wonderful experience to relax and enjoy the outdoors! The traditional breakfast afterwards was also delicious and a very welcome addition.

We would definitely recommend this company and Ben to anyone wanting to get out of KL city and experience the natural beauty of Malaysia without wanting to travel too far. Thanks Ben and Open Sky!

Hard but worth it!
Feb 2020
The trek is hard and quite a climb, but with the help of Amos we reached the 3 viewing points and got a fabulous view of Kuala Lumpur. Wouldn't have missed it!! Thanks to Amos for his patience and help along the way, great hike and brunch afterwards

Dragon Back Trek with Ben
Feb 2020
An absolutely amazing experience! Ben picked us up on time and took us to the trek. He was really prepared- gave us gloves for the trek, mosquito replant and even brought fruit with him to share which was so thoughtful! He was really knowledgeable about every step of the path and was considerate about our trekking pace. The views were absolutely incredible! Ben had great English and shared so much knowledge about Malaysia. He also has a great sense of humor and we had many laughs up and down the trek! He took us to a great breakfast place where the food was delciiousss. My favorite day in Malaysia! I really recommend this trek for anyone that wants to see beautiful scenery and challenge themselves physically along the trek with great company.

Dragon Back with Amos - brilliant!
We had a really fantastic trip with Amos. He was really communicative ahead of the trek and picked us up on time before taking us for an epic walk. The views were unreal and the brunch after was really excellent. He also added on a trip to Batu Caves which was a good stop. Can't recommend the dragon's back trek enough - thanks again!
