Local Hiking/Trekking forums
I have done some search, but cannot find any local forum on Hhiking or trekking. Any recommendation?

The closest one I can find is the SAC forum at http://www.sac.org/race/.
Not very active though.

Thanks man. Maybe trekkin/hiking is not very popular here.

the website is not really a forum. It is just their homepage.
I have been with SAC for a couple of years and I would say they organise quite a number of trips for their members. Give them a call if you are interested.

I have been trekking to new zealand, tasmania, swiss, tibet, nepal, pakistan....
tasmania is really nice, affordable and extremly scenic. I did the overland trek in 98, and its easily one of the best treks i have went so far.
I did the Tour de Muveran in Bex in Switzerland, a 5 day trek that allows you a 360 view of the Matterhorn.
even treks to Ophir is good. I have also trekked and climbed Tahan, Korbu, Charma, etc...
You need to tell me what you are looking out for this trek, and I can recommend them to you.
I am also primarily a gear buff, so hope to give you advice on that...
