Tabur Hill – West Route
I never get tired of Tabur Hill, but nowadays I really focus on completing more new mountains. My latest attempt on Tabur Hill was last year, on West route which gave an old memory recall since 5 years back. Huh? Am I recalled my first ever hike in my life?
Tabur West (Bukit Tabur)
West route, is the most basic route when people talk about Tabur Hill, a hill with amazing view but dangerous enough if you fear of height. Satisfaction was priceless when you step on every unblocking view of the surrounding.
Yeah, a short of 10 minutes of steep hiking from the entrance can give you a very first introduction of what Bukit Tabur (Tabur Hill) can offer to you.
My revisiting trip to this hill was done quite some time, but this remain fresh in my mind. Although it wasn’t for tough training, but the view and expectation remain unchanged. Our early morning hike was welcome with a misty morning.
We were accompanied with a dog (called Tabur’s dog) which worried our safety and indirectly guiding us to the correct way.
From all the way up and down, towards some dangerous slope, we were sighted with landscape view.
Early in the morning 7am …
We parked our car at the trunk road leading to the entrance. At the end of the road is the death-end.
Trunk road … park at roadside
Before the end-of-road … entrance begin here
Take care the nature … do not litter
Misty morning … can’t get a good sunrise view
Reflection from the dam water … rare sight
Following us … ensure we follow the right route?
Sign of beware … hornets can kill if get disturbed
View of urban city … few lung of greenish area still around
Warning! This crossing … was not advisable as alternative way available now
Going down … challenging or not?
Sign of relief? … not yet the peak
Mossy forest … not mossy anymore
Mossy path … last part before end-of-road
View from DEAD end … MRR2 view
Blocked! … Further down the path is lead to no-where
Mission impossible … crosses to the other side
Tabur West exploration ends here. Maybe I should do a yearly hike from now on.
No doubt, hiking can bring wonderful experience if you choose to hike Tabur Hill because the toughness rating is low and overall hiking hour is only taking 4 hours. Remember taking a camera with you together because you friend will gonna love it when you show the pictures to them.
But one thing for sure, it’s everyone responsibility to take care the nature so that other people can enjoy it. The nature takes million years to form the structure, but take a short moment to spoil it.
Let’s have fun on hill-hiking.
