Featuring an equally scenic twin peak, Bukit Tabur is a hiking spot within a stone’s throw away from Kuala Lumpur that is separated by the Klang Gates dam. The two-for-one scenic locales consist of an eastern and western section that both feature hiking routes of varying difficulty.
Bukit Tabur: Magnificent Hike
More specifically, the intimidating quartz ridge is home to five different peaks which provides a challenge for hikers looking to conquer it. Of the two sections of Bukit Tabur, the west is more commonly used as compared to its eastern counterpart. And that’s because the eastern trail makes for a rockier journey to the top and in general, is more suited for experienced hikers as the ascent takes longer.
Regardless of which route you take, both trails are definitely worth the sweat and inevitable mosquito bites that’ll accompany you up to the peaks. The view is certainly worth it when you get to the top.
Think about it. An amazing sunset coupled with the surrounding lush greenery, in addition to the serene waters of the Klang Gates damn, and you’ve got a pretty good idea of what Bukit Tabur entails. Plus, potentially getting a glimpse of the ever-fabulous Genting Highlands — if there’s clear weather — is just the icing on top of the cake.
