A short morning hike is a good way to start the day. This is the first time that I'm doing it on a weekday. This is for 2 reasons: <1> I'm busier now on weekends than weekdays, <2> To see if there are members who have time on weekdays for such activities.

It's decent exercise to get a nice sweat. This is a relatively simple hike but there are hills to be climbed, so you have to be relatively fit. I've seen 10 year old kids running up as well as unfit adults having to stop frequently to catch their breath.

It's also very scenic. Lovely to have a green lung so close to KL. We need to enjoy it before it's developed. The hike is in the woods, shady enough so it's not too hot. There are photo opportunities for those interested in nature.

We are only starting the hike at 10:00 am in case some have a late night. My number is Protected content . If you're delayed or can't make it, please do give a call.

Please send me your phone number so we can communicate if there are changes. I'll start a WhatsApp group for this hike. We can also share photos there after the hike.

Bring water and maybe a change of clothes for after the hike. Have a bite before the hike so you don't run out of energy.

Asia Jaya and Taman Jaya are the nearest LRT stations. A taxi would take about 10 minutes from there.

If you're driving, there should be ample parking unlike on weekends. Don't park where there are yellow lines as the MPPJ officers are diligent in issuing summons for illegal parking.

The hike itself is only about 90 minutes. If all are keen, we can go for lunch nearby after the hike.
