Bukit tabur....yeah

WEll, i came across a picture of my friend in her frenster. It was a picture potraying a high view of the dense forest and a river or a lake, and mountain range faraway...a thought came into my mind, i also wanted to go this beautiful place. SO i left a comment in that photo, asking 'this is a vy beautiful place, where is it??' Most of her pictures she uploaded were pics of a bunch of frens climbing and hiking....i was so envy , haha coz i like hiking and nature vy much.

Oneday, my friend finally replied me and asked me whether i would like to join her to climb d bukit again!! I was so happy and agreed to it.

The day finally came that we met at wangsa maju 7-eleven 6.45AM, but i was late..haha, coz the feeder bus was late, n i have to grab a cab to send me to the asia jaya lrt station, it took another 45mins to reach wangsa maju. Had my breakfast then bought water...then off we went for the climb.

Bukit Tabur (also known as Taman Melawati Hill) is located in Taman Melawati, Wangsa Maju, Kuala Lumpur. The hill, which is less than 1000 meters, is a quartz/limestone combination formation. Climbers enter the hiking trail via Kampung Klang Gates, 50 meters from the gates of the Klang Gates Valley Dam, at the back of Taman Melawati. The Gombak Forest Reserve and Klang Gates Valley Dam are beside the hill. The peak offers spectacular view of the dam.

I was told tat tis time they were gona climb the bukit that was less climb by ppl which is on the right side....n heard it was a much more difficult climb........

we have to drive near the dam, then walk a distance to the entrance of the forest, the starting point of the climb, beside that place, there is also a small stream der where locals owez play water der. The climb was quite steep, though there is a track, but it is not easy to climb, u need ur hands to climb as well and easy to get dirty.

The climb can be quite slippery especially for those shoes that are not so fit for climbing. We climbed early in the morning to avoid the hot sun, the whole climb up and down actually need 3-4hours depending how fast and how many stop u make to rest or take pics. The bukit has quite alot of rocks too. There are quite a number of peaks and viewpoints along the climb. Towards the end of the climb, one have to climb with d aid of rope, tat track was almost 70degree steep.

On the toppest viewpoint, ppl owez tot that, that place was the end of the climb and start to descend down later, however there was still a small trail that was even less ppl trek through which lead to a real end of the climb, a 90degree cliff.

The difference of this bukit and d other 1 which is more popular and easier to climb(claim by fren) is tat, u have to turn back n descend using the same route compared to the other one where u can go down through another trail.

The scenery view on tis bukit was said to be more beautiful than the other 1, which i thinked is true, coz i screened through the pics that was took on the next bukit and found tat the view was not tat nice. BOth bukit overlook the dam in different side, but this bukit that we climbed overlook the dam n a bigger scope which makes it more beautiful :)

The climb was superb for me, and i longed to climb again

SO, i climbed again with the same frens and frens of frens, and a fren of mine a week ago. Hope to bring more frens to climb....hehe

Here were the pics took during my 1st trip v shuan ting, ah zhe, n shi yun.
