Long before, RK told me about nature walk at Taman Bukit Kiara: shaded and tarred walkway with pretty steep ascent; not only good for casual walk but also great for cycling. There are hiking routes that look pretty challenging to me too. And I’ve learned that over the years the park has been improved with exercise amenities.
I was there over the last weekend with RK and 3 other friends — 2 adults and 1 6-month-old baby! We were there for the easiest course of course. It was the baby’s first stroll in the park (literally because she was in the stroller) and it was my steepest ascent since earning my 5-inch-long battle scar.
Believed there’s only one entrance in and out of the 4 main routes illustrated on the map signage; I didn’t take photo of the map signage though. We only explored the route that lead in from the car park and entrance. It was my steepest and longest walk so far anyway so we didn’t want to be adventurous and turned back at the meeting point of the 4 routes.
We arrived at about 8am. There was a good crowd on a Sunday morning. Half were walking; half were cycling. Road condition was good so it’s comfortable for feet, bicycles and strollers alike. Didn’t spot anyone else with a stroller though so the baby attracted attention, as usual. Unless you’re fit to piggybag the baby through the ascent and descent, let’s just use the stroller and bring mosquito repellent.
I’d definitely like to explore the park when I’m fit. Perhaps to check out the other tarred routes or even go off-road. Believe this is a gem =)
