Bukit Tabur West

Hiking up Bukit Tabur West on Sunday, 2 October 2016 ... the last time that I went to this quartz ridge was three years ago. These days, we spend most of the time trekking and trail running at the earth-based mountains or hills.

Climbing up this rock-based hill is dangerous and one must hold on dearly to the rock or the rope next to the cliff – and pray that they would never let you down. 

Another name for Bukit Tabur is Klang Gates Quartz Ridge. Luckily there is no gold in the quartz; otherwise, this hill would have been flatten long time ago. The quartz ridges act as a natural dam for the the Klang Gates reservoir, and it is one of the major sources of drinking water for the residents of Klang Valley.

 Commercial photo shoot up in the hill with the local yow yeng model; I see that the crew spent a lot of effort in carrying up the heavy photographic equipment
 The really happy models (... seeing a Tarzan up in the hill?)

 Other than the strong legs, one must have the strong arms too

 A tricky situation in securing a firm spot for landing  
Lover's Rock: Shu-Lin has to cross the rock – tilted downwards – by hugging it firmly 
Alternatively, Lana can even rest comfortably for a little while by leaning against it

Yeah ... We made it  :-)
