A long break from hill-hiking, which I never think would come back again. My hiking gung ho which concealed 3 years ago is releasing today.
Melati Hill is located at Nilai, offering a safe & clean trail, suitable to beginner like me (return of DeXXy). A long retired group of hikers, who made a comeback to hiking scene, making a clean call, initiates the occurrence today.
29 May 2018 | Melati HILL Trail @ Nilai
To carefully selecting a place, my comeback is truly a new place that I never been before. In the sense of beginner level again, without expectation, we have a junior hiker joining us. A 4 years old kid.
The STARTING trail is very visible (next to Temple Na Du Gong). The entire hill is built with few checkpoint named Centipede Hill, Monkey Hill, Cobra Hill and Mosquito Hill, with a section call Rope trail.
Understand from source from local, this hill’s trail was built by a medical doctor for his patients. Each of the trails created for different purpose which to cater and attract his patients to exercise regularly. An initiative to live healthy.
Seeking a new place to hike around KL & Selangor has never faded inside me. Till I learn from my hiking guru recommended this hill. A friendly hill for beginner. He decided to bring us there for once after talked about some time.

Neither I have any clue what and where is this hill until I attempted it. Peak should be nothing to fancy about but the CHECKPOINT is!
Checkpoint is the place where the PANAROMA of KL view where PEAK is nothing than a TELECOMMUNICATION base. Many locals knew this place and organized few hike at the night for spectacular KL night view since the trail is absolutely beginner friendly. I chosen to hike in the early morning to catch a SUNRISE!
Never underestimated the word of ‘Bukit’ (meaning of hill). It can be bigger than life of mountain. My trip to Bukit Repin was one of the toughest hike I ever been. Trust or not, the 28km distance (return trip) cost it all.
13 May 2014 | Bukit Repin
It was a month since I had done Bukit Chenuang, yet another tough hike. I am off with another again.
Bukit Repin is situated next to Gunung Nuang and the trail is beautiful. This trail is much easier from the starting point of Klang Gates area, however, there are several difficulties and on many occasions, motorbike wheels erode the track.
The distance to the R&R is almost 14km, so the round trip gave me 28km of hiking pleasure.
Never underestimate hill & mountain by its name. Bukit Chenuang, a hill by name, as tough as typical mountain. Located in the area around Gunung Nuang and accessible via trail through Congkak Recreational Park.
13 April 2014 | Bukit Chenuang (Congkak Recreational Park)
‘Nuang’ is a name that many hikers terrified when heard about it. However, Bukit Chenuang should not be taken lightly as well. The jungle area is closely related to Gunung Nuang. Due to this, I decided to follow KL Hiking community to Bukit Chenuang when they planned for it. A small fee of RM1 for entrance and RM3 for carpark is compulsory.
The group started hike from Camp Zone 6. The rest of the hike was not easy Trail after the river crossing was tough, with very steep steps which spoil with fallen bamboos/rattan and thorny plant.
It took me total 2 hr 15 min to reach the peak. Descending took me 1 hr 50 min. Therefore, completed this only 4 hours, but for me I felt like 6 hours. Perhaps too long absent from hiking made the situation not favorable to me.
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.
