Mount Lambak (Malay: Gunung Lambak) is a small mountain in Kluang District, Johor, Malaysia. The summit is 510 m above sea level.[1]

Mount Lambak Recreational Forest[edit]

It has been developed as a recreational and tourist attraction called Mount Lambak Recreational Forest. Pathways and wooden bridges make it relatively easy to climb to the summit, and a picnic spot at the base of the mountain has car parking, benches, a small children's playground and toilets.[2] There is also chalet accommodation, camping facilities and a swimming pool.[3]

Broadcasting mast[edit]

The television station RTM completed a transmitter on Gunung Lambak in 1969 to provide good reception in Kluang. It closed in 1983, superseded by a transmitter at Gunung Ledang, near Tangkak. The mast still stands at the summit of Gunung Lambak.
