Alternatively, Tabur East is offering a sunrise view, a view that many hikers/campers wanted to see when they wake up in the morning. With equipped a good DSLR camera, you can easily taken a striking sun light flaring your lens nicely. Believe it, any point and shoot camera can produce this angle, but of course with some editing works, the stunning light can align in nice tone.

Back from photo topic, let’s talk about hiking experience from Tabur East. This route is accessible from Taman Melawati, located at few turning within the residential area.

Bukit Tabur (Tabur Hill) is one of the most popular hill among hikers. If you have been to Broga Hill or heard about it, you’re pretty much to like this hill as both offer you the striking view of sunrise in good weather. My hiking in Tabur Hill this time indeed a very good experience. I did five attempts in West entrance since year 2006 and this round I managed to hike East route with guidance from an experience leader in our group.

Bukit Tabur (Tabur Hill) – Sunrise @ East Route

14 March 2010

With a splendid 6 hours of hiking (included rest and photography session), it gave me a different view of Tabur Hill since I first knew it. Due to our mission is to watch sunrise at the peak, we planned to start hiking as early as 6.00am. All of us were punctual and VOILA, we started to walk in the dark with help of head torch lamp.

The sky still in dark and we walked in a line with a sweeper behind us. It was done professionally by considering all of us are first timer. Even though, none of us complained about exhaustion, guess everyone there are quite fit for such challenging climb.
