Hey guys! I am back and wanted to start a series of small hikes Protected content before we go for the big ones Protected content in Malaysia. I will try to do it consistently, I promise. :)

The first one, I thought I'd introduce you to the hill around my neighbourhood - Bukit Ketumbar in Cheras. There are several trails we can start but they all loop back to the entrance point so its pretty simple. There is a man-made Gym on top and on a trail to the right, we can see the landscape of Kuala Lumpur, if weather permits.

This is a hike which is suited for “beginners”, however, physical fitness is a prerequisite. We will head to the top first and then take a route down on the other side where we will stop to admire the landscape of Kuala Lumpur. Once we finish the first loop, you have a choice to continue or to stop, its up to you.

So! Pay attention:
- wear shoes with profile (a pattern on the soles to prevent slipping and gliding).

- pack all your sensitive stuff in your backpack in plastic bags

- bring enough drinks and snacks (carbohydrates). For this hike you will need at least 2 liters of drinks.

- bring a towel and some dry clothes/shoes and leave it in the car so you can change after the hike.

Once you RSVP, you will need to whatsapp me so I can add you to the group!
