WITH a better preparation this round, I’ve attempted on Bukit Kutu again. Approximate 3 hours taken for this challenge. I participated in a huge group and together we all followed each other to make sure everyone make it to the top. I wouldn’t want to fail this time.
20 Feb 2011 | Bukit Kutu Revisited
The toughness of Bukit Kutu is still hold me back. With a height of mountain but called as hill, this hike provided me a great determination to complete it. With such motivation, I made it to the top, this round up to the real peak, that’s the big boulder (can’t hold more than 5 pax at one time).
Subsequently there is an abandon and ancient mansion behind this peak. Although nothing fancy, but without this visit, I don’t call this as completeness in my list.
A BIG surprise if you compare Bukit Ketumbar with similar hill in KL Cheras area. You may not expect the trek can be completed lesser than an hour. You can forget of having guide to the peak, but having an experience people that hiked before would be an ideal choice. The path is clear and directive.
29 Jan 2011 | Bukit Ketumbar Leisure Hike
Bukit Ketumbar is just a hill for local resident to have their daily morning exercise. However, with social networking ability to spread the place to no boundaries, nowadays, the place is crowded especially during weekend.
Hiking this hill is kind of leisure hike which I’d fond to it lately. It’s located not far from my house, roughly 3km. The entrance is just a 5 minutes walk from Ketumbar Height Condo.
Car park is FREE on side road but once it’s FULL, you have no choice but to park in designated parking area with fees. Stalls selling fruits and drink are available along the entrance.
HAVING a chance to hike Tabur Extreme is consider a very challenging move. It was organized by the famous hiker cum recce master, Alvin Chang specifically for us to explore the serenity of the Tabur series mountains and at the same time testing our hiking passion.
13 Feb 2011 | Tabur Extreme
A final series of Tabur which classified as extreme version. A correspondent to rock hiking, people often associate this as tough and dangerous. If you often hike and get used to it, probably, it’s just another hiking under the hot sun.
No doubt, Tabur is offering a good place for photography and my passion on photography can be say started from here few years ago.
This would marking my end to continue exploring Tabur in future, exception on leisure basis.
Saga Hill is not a stranger to many hikers. In fact, this place was used as training base for Mount KK. The slope, terrain and steepness are what they’re looking for.
Bukit Saga (Saga Hill) Weekend Hiking
Located merely lesser than 2km from my house, this round was my third hike in here. A revisited trip has striker my interest further towards Bukit Saga. Indeed, a hill with many different routes leading to the peak and many stations to stop by for a complete journey.
I’ve yet to explore via Cheras Awana, mainly from Taman Saga entrance. There is limited parking space in playground field. Many advise to park at shop lot parking at Jalan Saga 20 and walk about 5 min to the starting point.
For most of the casual hikers, this hill is seems to be less known to them. An exception for those who like to recce to any kind of jungle. The actual trail leads to the summit was kinda short but not as easy as expected.
28 Nov 2010 | Hill-Hiking @ Bukit Rasa
The terrain are consists of loose soils, a bit of rock climb and jungle trekking. The starting point is all about rock ascends. A beirut is marked as the summit of the hill. Supposedly, the hill offers a 270 degrees panoramic view, but those overgrown trees have blocked the surrounding from being seen.
If the skies are clear, we will able see Genting Highlands from the beirut. To make it interesting, few of us actually climbed up to the beirut for better view.
