12 miles from Tioman Marina
Anchor in 8-15 metres on sand in front of the village. Mukut is the small friendly kampong fishing village on this southern coast of Tioman. There are a number of small bays and basic resorts scattered along this coast.
The scenery is impressive, with the distinctive twin peaks ‘Donkey’s Ears’ or ‘Dragon Horns’ of Gunung Semukut towering above. This is one of Malaysia’s most sought-after rock climbing destinations.[read more]
The trail begins from the base at Mukut and splits into different routes, including the 10-minute walk to the famous ‘South Pacific’ waterfall, Asah. Water is available on the concrete jetty, which smaller vessels can approach at high tide. Just north on their own beaches are Minang Cove, Bagus Place and Tunamaya resorts.[/read]
