It has been quite some time since my last hiking experience. We are conquering a rocky quartz hill, located north-eastern of Kuala Lumpur (At the foot of Taman Melawati). It is also the location of Klang Gate Reservoir, sit in between the quartz ridge, documented as the world longest (From The Charm of Klang Gate). On top of the ridge, you can see clearly the dam and its surrounding forest. The beginning journey is not easy, you have to climb up muddy slope, pass through jungle, and before you reach the peak, is the quartzy surface that you need to go though. If you are planning a trip there, make sure you gear up properly, a hiking shoe with good grip, hiking glove and cap (depends on individual), plenty of water, clothes for changing after the hike, towel, and most importantly camera!
