Tabur East

The more popular trail for Bukit Tabur would be Tabur West. This is the trail which had been where accidents and fatalities had been dominating the news and is every parent’s nightmare when their children chose to do some hiking. Religiously, every Sunday, hundreds of hikers would be jamming up the narrow paths of Tabur West. It is just pure statistics of the sheer amount of numbers especially of many first timers, that an accident will happen.

Lesser known on the Eastern side away from the crowd is the Bukit Tabur East trail.

Giant Pipes of Melawati

To access Tabur East, you will have to look for the giant pipes that lead to Klang Gates.

The climb from the first ridge to the peak takes another 30 minutes which involved a climb on a virtually 90 degrees rock wall up about 50 feet. Lo0ks scary and definitely not for the faint hearted.
