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.

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.

You may ask why there is a FOOTPRINT at the summit on the boulder. Myth stated that it was belong to legendary warrior Hang Tuah which used to move one place to another place by jumping mountain to mountain. (Source from WikiTravel).
My FOURTH time to hike this legendary mountain and the best timing I achieved among all. I took 1.5 hour to touch the base peak. Started at 8.30am, reached at 1st check-point (rest area) at 9.10am and subsequent base peak at 10.00am.
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.
