Bukit Taboh Melawati, Hulu Klang Hiking Trip

Location : Bukit Taboh, Taman Melawati, Hulu Klang
GPS Cooridinates : N3 13.986 E101 44.866

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bukit Taboh is located in the District of Gombak in Selangor. It is also localy known as Bukit Hangus. The hill is very prominent and could be seen from the Middle Ring Road 2 travelling from Seri Gombak to Ampang. The hill could be access through Taman Melawati by following the Genting Klang Road which will lead to the Klang Gate Dam.

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 Dam, at the back of Taman Melawati for a quick 3-4 hours climb. The Gombak Forest Reserve and Klang Gates Dam are beside the hill. The peak offers spectacular view of the dam.

Our hiking started around 8 in the morning and the whole journey took us about 2 and half hours to complete. The sunrise was not as what we expected as the day was cloudy and kind of hazy. Overall the journey was satisfying and we had a very good exercise. View my photo gallery as follows:
