Bukit Kembara is a moderate hill for leisure hiking especially for beginner who seeking for easy-peasy hike. Located in the green lung next to Taman Bukit Indah, this hill is not that popular enough but one should consider it because the difficulty level is rate as LOW.

Never imagine the reward of the hike would be an awesome reservoir view which I don’t think many hill would able to offer this, especially around KL.
An old but active reservoir called Ampang Impounding Reservoir was one of the earliest waterworks constructed in 1892. This location is fondly known to nature lovers as Bukit Indah.
KL Hiking group was the sole organizer for this hike. Again, I followed them to discover my first hike on this hill.
Pine Tree Trail is located at Fraser Hill, a highland resort on the mountain of Pahang. Known as Bukit Fraser by local, this place can be reached by road transport about 2 hours via trunk road from Kuala Lumpur.
PINE TREE Trail @ Fraser Hill
At height of 1,500 meter, Pine Tree Hill can be access near end of High Pines Road. This trail is only 5.5km long but it needs about 4 hours or less to hike. A return trip would require 6-8 hours. This is one of the toughest trails that well-known among hikers. There are 7 other shorter trails scattered around, namely Mager Trail, Abu Suradi Trail, Hemmant Trail, Bishop Trail, Maxwell Trail, Rompin Trail and Kimbersley Trail.
A good things with all trails is there are many sign boards were built to show the distance you have done. Our time expectation was better managed with this sign.
This trip was initiated when we spotted a very good deal in Groupon which enabled us to stay at Fraser Hill at very cheap price. On sharing basis, we only need to pay RM29 per night for each person (2 bedroom apartment), at Fraser’s Silverpark Resort. We’ve combined group for this trip. I opted to stay 3D2N because I decided to explore all trails during my stay. Understand from others saying Pine Tree Trail itself would take full day. Therefore, I need another day to explore the rest.
By focusing solely on beach & hill-hiking activity on the weekend, we’d nowhere to go other than Tanjung Tuan Forest Reserve Park & Pulau Intan beach. The famous landmark the representing this place is Tanjung Tuan Light House.
Beach & Rainforest Trekking – Tanjung Tuan
I organized this as part of Perhentian Island Challenge 2012 physical training preparation. I’d a group of 13 who joined me for this training. I hope everyone enjoy it although few of them never expect it to be too tough.
Tanjung Tuan, a stretch of Port Dickson beach, provides a jungle trail through the coastal will lead to white sandy beaches and a small island called Pulau Intan. Is the best kept secret of Port Dickson at the tip of Tanjung Tuan?
A series of walking through the jungle up to the trek of Batu Putih (similar to Tabur Hill) overview of Port Dickson coastal.
Gunung Nuang was always a good training base for any event of personal achievement and measurement. Compare to other tougher mountain, this mountain always be the baseline. With the completion of Nuang hike, other hike was a just a boost of motivation and strength to carry on.
Training @ Gunung Nuang Trails
It was none of my preparation or little workout for my upcoming Gunung Rajah hike. It’s deeming to be tougher and a lot tougher than many would think. With one way of 16km distance, two way of 32km (day trip), what a great point to test my ability.
Hence, let’s the training get started in Gunung Nuang.
A combination of few places in one trip was a time-saving. Organized by a group called My Travel Kaki Dot Com, we’d a fruitful trip which we never thought of exploring in the first place for hiking, Port Dickson.
Kota Lukut (Fort) & Pulau Intan Beach Trek
Being able to explore new places always my aim. This group leader was being so kind to bring us to exciting place for nature hike plus beach trek. Wonderful huh?
I can’t imagine how these both could combine together. Looks not tough, but it’s enough to make people say enough for the day.
