Saga Hill – Route C
To complete Bukit Saga hiking series, one must done for all the routes (A, B, C & D). Normally, many call it as completed via Route A (famous route). The rest are much tougher and challenging, but I determined to complete Route C this time.
Saga Hill (Bukit Saga) – Route C
It doesn’t take long to complete all routes, not even weekly or monthly but could be as short as 1 day. It depends on your stamina, but doing it weekly is recommended. All routes end-point will be at SAGA Hill peak.
Route C is accessible along the way of Route A, where the diversion happened (look around for direction) during flat trek. Route C will be diverted when you see the Chinese local deities OR small camp/rest area as shown in picture above.
Some labelled Route C as ‘Courage’ due to the trek difficulties is higher than the rest. Compare to Route D (which I’ve yet to explore), this is the best challenge trek among all.
Starting point of Route C … visible trek
Chinese deities (altar) & rest area
Steepness requires rope for support … challenging trek
Checkpoint … beirut as checkpoint
Direction is clear … always on the right direction
Diversion trek to Apek Hill waterfall, be careful … keep on the track towards Saga Hill top
The end of Route C … Saga Hill top is just few steps away
Completing the Route C is just part of Saga Hill hiking. Taking a return back to the base can be any route on your choice, be A or B or even same C.
From Hill top … Route C direction is clearly visible
In fact, customization on the trails trekking in Saga Hill is much fun. With all routes accessible and easily spotted, it’s not tough to explore further down off track such as waterfall, Station 1-6 (Apek Hill) and pond recreational area.
Take a look at major map available at the beginning trail near the stall (selling nasi lemak, drinks and fruits) before start.

Looking forward to explore Route D, perhaps in year 2014.
