Tabur X (Extreme)

Tabur West - Tabur East - Tabur Far East - Tabur Extreme

Tabur X


Tabur Extreme is the one of the higher points along the quartz dike known as Bukit Tabur. The nearly 14km long dike has a few sections that are accessible to trekkers that range from the easier and more popular Tabur West and Tabur East that lie closer to the Klang Gates Dam in Taman Melawati to the slightly tougher Tabur Far East and Tabur Extreme that lie closer to the National Zoo.

Tabur East Sunrise

Tabur West - Tabur East - Tabur Far East - Tabur Extreme

Tabur East


This trek was another of a series of sunrise treks that were undertaken in the wee hours of the morning. By the time we parked the car and located the huge twin pipes that we needed to follow, it was already 05:10. The pipes can either be located from the end of the Jalan Kolam Air road or from the road that leads to the Klang Gates Dam where trekkers park there car for the Tabur West trek (marked 'A' in the map). If one goes from this road however, you will need to walk along the green fence from the dam entrance until you come upon a short flight of steps. Head through this entrance and pass a small creek (where you can wash up after either the Tabur East or Tabur West trek) until you come upon the pipes. Read more

Trail 9A (Cameron Highlands)

Pauh Campsite - Mount Jasar - Mount Brinchang - Mount Irau

The Plan


The initial plan was to head for the Robinson Waterfall for some rest and relaxation after the morning's trek to Mount Brinchang. The beginning of trail 9 that lead to the waterfall began at the side of a road that lay nearby the MARDI center (conducts research in agriculture, food and agro-based industries), just after turning right at a T-junction before one reaches the hospital.

Mount Jasar


Mount Jasar can be reached with a short trek via trail 6 from the Cameron Bharat Tea Plantation as well as from trail 10 which begins just behind the Oly Appartments and at the end of Tan's Cammellia Garden. Tan's Camellia Garden is private property however so if you find the gates to be closed, you can just head up the slope to the right of the compound before you reach the gates which will also end up leading to trail 10.

The Sungai Pauh Campsite


The Sungai Pauh Campsite is located at the Forestry Department (Jabatan Hutan) in the residential area of Taman Sedia, which lies in Tanah Rata in Cameron Highlands and is one of the only camping spots that is readily available in this area.

Getting There

Lost in the Jungle

The plan was to start from Ulu Kinta and head to the start of the trail before making our way to Camp Seroja and then on to Camp Kijang. From there we would have gone on to the waterfall & LWP (Last Water Point) before reaching Mount Botak (1817m) which lay just before the summit of Mount Korbu (2183m) and Mount Gayong (2173m) - which were both members of the exclusive G7 group of mountains.

Mount Ulu Semangkok & Mount Gap


Mount Ulu Semangkok


Mount Ulu Semangkok is located in the Ulu Tranum Forest Reserve that lies in-between the states of Selangor and Pahang. A lot of people seem to mistake Mount Ulu Semangkok for Mount Semangkok which is a completely different mountain with a summit that lies at a much higher altitude and a trail that makes for a much tougher trek.

Mount Datuk Sunrise


Mount Datuk


Mount Datuk (also known as Mount Rembau or Mount Datuk Rembau) was apparently named after Dato' Perpatih Nan Sebatang who in 1372 was said to have organized a gathering of leaders in order to elect a clan chief (Dato' Lembaga). The town of Rembau itself lies about 25km South of Seremban in the state of Negeri Sembilan which meant that we had to leave Kuala Lumpur extremely early in order to be able to reach the summit of Mount Datuk (elevation : 884m) in time for sunrise.
