Bukit Kutu Trekking

Trekking at Bukit Kutu with RHB colleagues and friends on Saturday, 4 July 2015 ... For the past few weeks, the weather was hot and dry. So planning a trekking trip at Bukit Kutu would be good as one can dip in the cool water after descended from the mountain. 

After without rain for many days, it started to rain heavily in the early morning resulted a wet crossing in the stream. With the wet ground, worst still, the trail was infested with leeches. 

It was a fantastic outing with an excellent group of company amid a cloudy sky in the morning. After descent from the mountain, we dipped in the cool water as planned, and completed the event with a sumptuous late lunch at 5:30 p.m. at Hulu Yam Baru.

 The chimney – the remains of a bungalow at Bukit Kutu. I am amazed how the building materials were been carried up here as we need to trek for three hours to reach here!
