About Dragon:

Pulau Tioman is a well known tourist destination, located off the east coast of Malaysia. In August 2000 Scotty Nelson and Nick Tomlin spent 5 days establishing Waking Dream, which climbs the south face of Bukit Nekek Semekut, the most prominent of the Dragon's Horns or also known as the twin peak.In August 2002, the Malaysian team of Sharin,Roszaman,Abdullah Danial,Al-Haleq and Akmal made the second ascent of the peak. Other climbs may be possible as well; the east face looks to be substantially taller than the south face (maybe 600 meters). The east peak is exposed to the sun from morning till noon.
Nearest town or city: Kampung Mukut
Directions: To get to the Dragon's Horns, either take the ferry from Mersing or Singapore (4 hours) to the Berjaya resort. From here hire a speedboat (1 hour, $50-75) or catch a fishing boat (slow but cheap) to the charming Kampung Mukut, located on the southern tip of the island. If you take catamaran from Mersing it took only 2-3 hours or speedboat 1 1/2 hours to Mukut.( fees from RM50-70 return) From here the Dragon's Horns tower above the village. Follow the shoreline to some huts on stilts, then take the established path up the hill. When this ends, cut left through dense brush until a ravine/riverbed is reached. Follow this up to the base of the wall, then skirt left up and along the base of the wall (steep jungle) until an obvious high point is reached. This is the start of Waking Dream.
