Chiling Waterfall

Waterfalls of Malaysia

Chilling Fish Sanctuary


Chilling Fish Sanctuary was established by the Selangor Fisheries Department in 2005 in order to create a protected area for several species of carps (family Cyprinidae), including the Malayan mahseer (Tor tambroides), known as 'Ikan Kelah' in Malay, and the near-threatened Copper mahseer (Neolissochilus hexagonolepis), or 'Ikan Tengas'. Both these fish fetch very high market prices (the 'Empurau' for instance, is priced at RM2000 per kilogramme!) and as such are suffering from a severe decline due to over-fishing. Read more

Topo: Batu Caves


Batu Caves


The limestone formations that make up the Batu Caves (Tamil: பத்து மலை) complex are said to be hundreds of millions of years old. The complex itself is mainly known for the Hindu temples (the main one dedicated to Lord Murugan), and the heavily publicised annual Hindu pilgrimage that takes place during Thaipusam (Tamil: தைப்பூசம்). Batu Caves derives its name from Sungai Batu (Stone River), the river that runs past the limestone complex. Read more

Lepoh Waterfall

Waterfalls of Malaysia

Lepoh Waterfall


Lepoh Waterfall is a relatively small waterfall, but the cascades and the rock formation that it runs over make it a fairly attractive one. The waterfall is located in the jungles of Ulu Langat, and lies just 3 kilometres to the west-southwest of the summit of Nuang. Read more

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

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. The trail that we took leads to the summit of another mountain called Mount Gap, which lies at an altitude of 1183m, before continuing on to the summit of Mount Ulu Semangkok (elevation : 1394m).

Mount Bunga Buah


Bunga Buah


We set off early in the morning to the small town of Goh Tong Jaya, which is a satellite town of Genting named after the former chairman of the Genting Group. We gathered at the 'Nasi Kandar Genting' mamak shop just next to the Seri Malaysia Hotel at 08:00, where we stocked up on some Nasi Lemak for breakfast as well as bottles of water to sustain us throughout the trek.

Kubang Gajah Waterfall

Tabur West - Tabur East - Tabur Far East - Tabur Extreme
Waterfalls of Malaysia

Kubang Gajah Waterfall


The trek to the Kubang Gajah Waterfall ("Elephant Waterhole"), that is also known as 'Sungai Ampang Waterfall', 'Kemensah Waterfall', as well as 'Sofea Jane Waterfall', was preceded by a trek up to Tabur West that had been organized for several couchsurfers. I won't go into the details of the Tabur trek as Tabur (West) has already been covered in one of my earlier posts. The Movescount details for this trek can be found here though if you are interested.

Saga Hill & Waterfall

Waterfalls of Malaysia

Saga Hill


Saga Hill was a pretty straightforward trek compared to almost everything else that I had done before. Despite the pace being very slow as the fairly large group had a lot of beginners, the peak was reached with roughly a half hour of steady trekking. The trail up to the peak lacked a view however but due to the low level of difficulty and it's proximity to the city center, it is optimal for those who are either new to trekking and don't want something too strenuous or for those who are looking for a quick trek close by. We followed trail C which had an ascent that was fairly constant up to the summit, with a trail that seemed to be fairly well maintained, even with steps built in at certain points. Read more

Mount Nuang (Kuala Pangsoon)

Via Kuala Pangsoon - Via Janda Baik

Mount Nuang


The group rose bright and early for the long drive to Kuala Pangsoon in Hulu Langat which lay on the East side of the state of Selangor. The trail for the trek up to the summit of Mount Nuang, which is one of the highest mountains in Selangor, began just before the Sungai Langat Dam at GPS coordinates '3.217420, 101.883090'.
