After Sungai Petani we reached the town of Gurun. After its northern end we started taking this route.
As I negotiated the sharp bends memory of the time I walked alone up the same road at night came to mind.
At times it felt scary as Gunung Jerai is known for having many supernatural beings that could well be ghostly.
This signboard denotes we were almost there.
There... we're on top. Watch out for the views in the next posting.
