Back-to-back training at Apek Hill Cheras in preparation for the 11-day Mont Blanc trekking in July 2019.
Day 1 Saturday 22 June 2019 – It started to rain at 7:15am when we were about to start from the fruit stall at Cheras Awana. Nevertheless, the show must go on! We braced for rain and continue the hiking. The original plan was to hike via Watergate extended trail, but due to the slippery ground, we decided to cut short the distance by going through Sansui Trail and connect to Station 5.
Day 2 Sunday 23 June 2019 – we went to hike Apek Hill again via the Watergate extended trail. It was a fine weather, superb for outing. With the rain yesterday, the air was fresh and the ground was soft but not muddy. As usual, from trailhead to Saga Hill top took 3 hours. With the rest and chat at Saga Hill top, and until we returned to trailhead fruit stall, it would be 5 hours round trip. We have our lunch at the EconSave food-court. When we returned home in our comfortable car at 1:30 p.m., it started to rain heavily – so this time, we were lucky (as compared to Day 1's hike in the rain).
