Hiking at Taman Tugu During RMCO June 2020

If you’re new to hiking and would like to start easy within the Klang Valley, I’d definitely recommend Taman Tugu. It’s a forest park with well-maintained trails and minimal elevation, suitable for families with young kids! The trail is also the prettiest in my book so it’s a treat for your eyes too.

Trekking Cat Cat Village, Sapa in Winter (Jan 2018) – Part 2

Are you ready for Part 2 after the lengthy Part 1 about our 7-hour hike through 3 villages in Winter? I was so ready to rent the boots again but our tour guide told us it was not necessary for Day 2 of trekking. Turned out that our second trek was mostly to visit Cat Cat Village, which is a tourism village that charges an entrance fee.

I’m one of those tourists who like to visit tourist attractions (as long as it’s not too commercialized aka $$$ everywhere) because they tend to be tourist-friendly; convenient to walk and see, with local food that may not be too local (aka suit my tourist palate). Spoiler: Cat Cat Village is my kind of tourist spot.

Trekking Sapa, Vietnam in Winter (Jan 2018) – Part 1

Sapa. Honestly, I’ve never heard of the place until my friends suggested to travel there so I really don’t know much about the place. But many of my other friends seem to know and want to visit Sapa so I thought it’d be good to have one post about my 2-day trekking at Sapa. Especially because there’s not much info about trekking Sapa in winter on blogs.

Solo Hike at Setia Alam Community Hiking Trail Jan 2018

My first hike of 2018 turned out to be an impromptu solo hike at Setia Alam Community Hiking Trail. I’ve travelled solo to Taiwan last year April and kinda hiked solo to arrive at a shrine. However, it wasn’t like a 4.5km hike that I had today. Continue reading Solo Hike at Setia Alam Community Hiking Trail Jan 2018

Bukit Dinding Hiking Oct 2017

I created a list of easy hiking trails in Klang Valley that I wanted to go at the beginning of the year. Bukit Dinding hiking trail was the only unchecked one on the list until one fine Sunday!

According to online sources, Bukit Dinding is one of the tallest hills in Kuala Lumpur. I don’t know how true it is but being one of the tallest doesn’t seem to earn it any popularity. Continue reading Bukit Dinding Hiking Oct 2017

Walking / Hiking at Taman Botani Negara Shah Alam

Not sure if theย 10.1km at Taman Botani Negara Shah Alam or Shah Alam Botanical Park (also known as Taman Pertanian Malaysia) was a hike or a walk. Basically, we walked on hilly tar road to Empangan Sg. Baru, then hiked on forest trailsย to Empangan Air Kuning. We were checking out the attractions along the way too so it was ratherย leisure.

Hiking at Kota Damansara Community Forest Reserve

My mom is laughing at the way I walk now; I can’t straighten both my legs because my muscles are aching after hiking at Kota Damansara Community Forest (or Hutan Simpan Kota Damansara) this morning. It was a 3-hour 7.4km (two-ways) hike to the peak of Denai Tiga Puteri, overlooking NKVE highway!

Got Lost Hiking at Setia Alam Community Trail

I wrote about hiking at Setia Alam Community Trail during my first hike there six months ago;ย took Route A up and Route B down. I actually commented that going up Route A was not physically challenging with my 4-month-old surgery wound. Today, I’m not sure if I’d say the same. Continue reading Got Lost Hiking at Setia Alam Community Trail

Hiking at Setia Ecopark, Setia Alam

My mom always go hiking at Setia Ecopark, Setia Alam with her friends but I’ve never been there because our schedule never matched. I wanted to go hiking one weekend but didn’t know where to go so I tagged along with them instead.

It was my first hike since my major surgery in end Jan to remove 26cm of my colon. #achievementunlocked

To my surprise, a number of Setia Alam residents did not know about this hiking trail that is located at Setia Ecopark 2, somewhere behind Setia City Mall. Continue reading Hiking at Setia Ecopark, Setia Alam

Hiking at FRIM Kepong

Not sure what happened but somehow I have been hiking more often since I started this blog and thus the frequency of hiking posts. About two weeks ago, I went hiking at FRIM Kepong (Forest Research Institute of Malaysia) with a few friends because we learned that there’s a Canopy Walkway. Continue reading Hiking at FRIM Kepong
