Gunung Telapa Buruk Negeri Sembilan

Gunung Telapa Buruk. Secretly tucked away in one of the corners of the Titiwangsa ranges in the state of Negeri Sembilan. Together with MNS friends from Malacca and Negeri Sembilan, we gathered in the District of Pantai for breakfast that bright Saturday morning before heading towards Telapa Buruk. At 3,913 feet ( according to Wikipedia ), this best-kept secret of Negeri Sembilan was rich with sub-montane birds! 

Sultan Tit. Flock of Sultan Tits at the place where Janice, Ang and myself sat for lunch at the side of the tarred road on the way to the summit of Gunung Telapa Buruk.

Mr. Blue-winged Leafbird. With his family of Mrs and Junior Blue-winged Leafbird. Total of 14 species sighted on a very late morning and early afternoon walk along the tarred road leading to the summit of Gunung Telapa Buruk.

Seems Silver-breasted Broadbills were common in Gunung Telapa Buruk but on that late August day, none were seen.

 All in all, it was a morning and afternoon well-spent in Gunung Telapa Buruk. The canopy of the trees with the sky above formed what looked like the letter V for Victory, from a distance up along the road. Truly a victorious day for Malaysia when the environment is protected and preserved for generations to come.
