Bukit Tabur @ Melawati(Part 1)

Hi everybody, how's your weekend?

Last 2 weeks...I went to Bukit Tabur which located at Taman Melawati for hiking and rock climbing with Johnny, Aaron and ChinWoo...

Some information of Bukit Tabur from Wikipedia :

Bukit Tabur is located in the District of Gombak in Selangor. It is also locally known as Bukit Hangus. The hill is very prominent and could be seen from the Middle Ring Road 2 travelling from Seri Gombak to Ampang. The hill could be access through Taman Melawati by following the Genting Klang Road which will lead to the Klang Gate Dam.

The hill, which is less than 1000 meters, is a quartz/limestone combination formation. Climbers enter the hiking trail via Kampung Klang Gates, 50 meters from the gates of the Klang Gates Dam, at the back of Taman Melawati for a quick 3-4 hours climb. The Gombak Forest Reserve and Klang Gates Dam are beside the hill. The peak offers spectacular view of the dam.

Johnny fetch me at around 5.45am and then we went to fetch ChinWoo...After that we gathered with Aaron at petrol station then we went to the Taman Melawati...We reached there at around 6.30am, after we parked the car then we started our hiking...The sky was very dark yet so we had to use torch light to continue...
