The Drangon's Horn are two spectacular spires over a deep jungle. They are located on Tioman's Island, in Malaisia.
You start approach through the jungle, from an amazing white sand beach. This is one of the rare area you can climb a big wall and swim in a coral sea in the same day.
Walls are 100m to 400m. Easy free climbing, hard free climbing, aid... All climbs exist on an incredible granit. This granit, solid, sometimes looks limestone or sandstone, with some slabs with lot of varied holds!
There is not only the Dragon's Horn: soon, a french team created new routes on Puncak Anak (into the two horns) and on Bagus Tower (west of north tower).

Access to most routes is via the trail cut in 2007 by Uncle Sam, the local jungle enthusiast and takes circa 1 - 1.30 hours. Sam runs a resort called Simukut Hill View (former Tanjung) in the fishing village Mukut at the base of access trail. Its well worth paying 50 MYR for a guide to teh base of your climb, as the trail get washed away in heavy rain and is difficult to follow in the dark.
To bagus Tower, another trail has been cut in 2015. Follow the road to west until the end. Go north in the trail (obvious in 2015) and reach the tower.
