In Malaysian hiking community, there are two main targets:

1) G7 - The seven highest mountains in Peninsula Malaysia (Tahan - Ulu Sepat) because there are only 7 mountains more than 7000 feet in Peninsula Malaysia.

2) G12 - The 12 highest mountains in Malaysia. The 5 highest mountains in Malaysia namely Kinabalu, Trusmadi, Tambuyukon, Murud and Mulu + G7 (Tahan is at No.6)In Malaysia, there are maybe less than 15 people who have completed G12 and the first 7 are from Penang Adventurers' Club (PAC). I only know of 2 other (non PAC) who have done it. I completed mine on 22 April 2005 at Mt Murud.

I noticed something. This statement is incorrect:

"...there are only 7 mountains more than 7000 feet in Peninsula Malaysia."

Since Batu Putih is at 7,103 ft; Irau is at 7,003 ft; and Benom 7,023 ft.

The G7 is named so because they're the 7 highest mountains in Peninsula Malaysia with a height of more than 7,000 ft.

Hi Wong,
