Kiara Hill Trekking

Leading a group of Zhineng chi gong members and friends for trekking at Bukit Kiara on 6 April 2013 in preparation for the 3D2N retreat at Lucky Valley soon.

It always give me a bit of surprise as many a times, leading the chi gong group for trekking mean encountering drizzles in the morning, never mind that it has not been raining for the past many days. It was drizzling at 6:30 a.m., just before the rendezvous time. Anyway, all those who intended to trek were not fazed or “intimidated” by the rain. A few brought umbrellas that double-up as trekking sticks … :-)

Kiara Hill is a good place for trail running as the gradient is not too steep. While they trek, I would take the opportunity to run around the hills on soft ground amid cool and fresh air.

The entire outdoor quest took almost 3 hours traversing a distance of about 9km (note: timer only activated after going for quite a distance – forgot la).
