Whether you’re rising early in Kuala Lumpur or Selangor, early mornings are the best times for a sun-kissed hike. They say the hiking trails will leave everyone breathless at every step of the way, but it’ll reward the most determined hikers with a breathtaking view.

1. Forest Research Institute of Malaysia (FRIM), Kepong

While it’s a bummer that the FRIM Canopy Walkway is permanently closed due to the declining health of the surrounding trees, there are a bunch of ways to experience the Forest Research Institute of Malaysia (FRIM). First and foremost, you’re only allowed to explore the forest and nature trails with a FRIM nature guide. Here are some simple steps to apply for a FRIM nature guide:

  • Head over to the FRIM One Stop Centre
  • When you request for a FRIM nature guide, choose between two types of services: nature trekking (RM150 per guide) and night walk (RM250 per guide). Each guide can accommodate a group of 25 pax
  • After you’ve made your payment, your guide will take you to 1-2 trails (popular choices: Keruing and Salleh Trails)
  • This nature tour will take approximately 1-2 hours (depending on the number of trails)


Credit: @zack_azhar on Instagram

While some trails are off-limits for research purposes, your guide can take you to their oldest trail named Keruing Trail, which is surrounded by statuesque timber trees. There are other trails to explore such as Salleh Nature Trail (1 hour) that is fenced by natural forest plantation as well as Engkabang Trail (45 mins) that focuses on biodegradation in the forest complete with sightings of hardworking termites on rotten trees. You can also check out migratory birds and wetland ecosystem along Sebasah Trail (40 mins). To witness the diversity of Malaysian under-storey plants, make your way to Razak Walk that is also Malaysia’s first disabled-friendly trail.

It’s an easy peasy hike for the pros, but a great practice ground for beginners. Perched behind Desa Park City, Bukit Sri Bintang is filled with grassy hillside complete with a view of Mont Kiara landscape when you reach the top.

After you entered the entrance at Taman Sri Bintang (behind Desa Park City), you’ll meet a fork that consists of a clear (but muddy!) trail and another with uneven steps. Don’t worry about getting lost because whichever path you choose will lead you to the hilltop. As the trees pave way for the open grassy field, here’s where you’ll see the terrace houses and condos down below.

3. Broga Hill, Semenyih

We’re pretty sure you’ve seen Broga Hill in the Instagram feeds of your Malaysian friends. Known as ‘Bukit Lalang’, Broga Hill is a nature spot in Semenyih that is widely frequented by nature lovers, hikers, trail runners and photographers. Most of them will arrive at dawn to admire the incredible panoramic view.


Credit: @kameliasyermain on Instagram

Reaching the skies at 400 meters high, trekking up Broga Hill is not too difficult as the trail is pretty straight forward with only moderate slopes. A word of caution, it can be quite crowded during the weekends and public holidays, so if you can manage it, try going up during a weekday. You should also come prepared with water bottles, adequate cover and a ton of sunscreen as the hill doesn’t have much in the way of coverage so you’ll be exposed to the sun.


Credit: @itslyzaa on Instagram

Climbing up Broga Hill, you’ll be able to see three viewing points marked by RHB signs at 880 feet, 1,150 feet and finally at the top at 1,312 feet. The entire climb will be enough to get your heart pumping but the scenic view of the plains, oil palm plantations and towns (complete with the distant mountains looming majestically in the background) makes the trek entirely worth it.

#HHWT Tip: As of 27 April 2019, no hiking permit is needed to climb Broga Hill. However, all hiking participants will need to pay a small fee at the entrance of the trail

Address: Broga Hills, Jalan Broga, Selangor

4. Bukit Tabur, Taman Melawati

[Updated on 29 April 2019: Our readers have informed us that Bukit Tabur is closed to hikers indefinitely, and the temporary closure has been confirmed by the Selangor Tengah District Forest Department. We hope this hiking spot reopens soon!]


Credit: @chinchinyi66 on Instagram

Located 20 km away from Kuala Lumpur is the famous Bukit Tabur (also known as The Dragon’s Backbone). It is a quartz ridge that offers a panoramic view of Kuala Lumpur, the Gombak forest reserve and the Klang Gates Dam. With not one, but FIVE different peaks, it is a suitably challenging trek for experienced hikers and for those who want to try and push their limits by going through an intense boulder crossing.


Credit: @cik.helang on Instagram

The Bukit Tabur West trail is the most popular out of all five treks and is both straight-forward and challenging. The whole loop would take about 3 to 4 hours, however, just around 30 to 40 minutes into the trail, you’ll come across a viewpoint that overlooks the Klang Gate Dam; a perfect spot for a quick photo or selfie.


Credit: @outsyeds on Instagram

Despite the West trail being one of the ‘easier’ ones, remember to be extra vigilant as there are many sections on the trail where you will need to use both your hands and legs to climb up and down the rocky surface. All in all, it’s going to be a killer workout but the views you’ll be able to see (and not to mention the bragging rights from conquering Bukit Tabur) is going to be well worth the aching muscles.

#HHWT Tip: Do note that a hiking permit is required to climb Bukit Tabur. These are the steps to apply for a hiking permit for Bukit Tabur.

  • Contact the Selangor Tengah District Forest Department (+603 9081 4918) at least one week before your hiking date
  • Fax a permission request letter complete with a list of hiking participant’s names, identification card numbers, contact numbers and hiking date. The Selangor Tengah District Forest Department’s fax number is +603 9081 5764.
  • You can submit your payment (RM5 per pax) directly at the forest department’s office or send a money order (we recommend using Pos Laju to speed up the mail delivery) to the office
  • Reach out to them in the next few days to check the status of your hiking permit

Address: Bukit Tabur, Taman Melawati, 53100 Selangor
Difficulty level: Moderately challenging

5. Bukit Sapu Tangan, Shah Alam

Never underestimate the height of Bukit Sapu Tangan because the hiking trails do pack a punch. Hidden within Taman Botani Negara Shah Alam, the hill is the highest peak in this botanical garden. So follow the signage and traverse on foot along the tarmac pathway instead. You’ll occasionally hear birds chirping and monkeys swaying from tree to tree, but they’re harmless and there’s nothing to worry about.

6. Apek Hill / Bukit Saga, Ampang


Credit: @christinepoo11 on Instagram

If climbing Gunung Tahan or Mount Kinabalu is part of your bucket list, Bukit Saga and Apek Hill (situated next to each other) is a great training ground thanks to its similarly challenging terrain. Every hiker will decided between two starting points. Since Trail A is currently closed off for construction work (at time of writing), tighten your shoe laces and make your way to Trail B.


Credit: @seemavee on Instagram

While being surrounded by towering trees, it’ll take a while to reach Trail C that doubles as a second checkpoint, but you’ll know it when you spot a small temple. Then, stay determined until you reach Trail D that is also another spot to take a break. At this point, you’ll be so close to the waterfall, so don’t give up! The waterfall may be small in real life, but your sore feet will thank you after a cold dip in it.

Address: Apek Hill Trail, Taman Cheras Awana, 43200 Cheras 9 Miles, Selangor
Difficulty level: Moderately challenging
Duration: 3-4 hours (both ways)

7. Bukit Gasing, Petaling Jaya

There’s nothing quite like exploring one of the city’s remaining ‘green lungs’, and we’re talking about Bukit Gasing. If you’re new to this hill of many trails, come during the weekends when it’s packed with hiking enthusiasts (they’d be happy to point you to the right direction in case you got lost). Otherwise, you can get your peace and quiet on weekday mornings too.


Credit: @jinipiriz on Instagram

Within the few hours you’ll spend here, follow the trail and spot a hanging bridge, an Indian temple, and huge leafy trees along the way. What this place lacks in facilities such as toilets, tap water, and parking spaces, they make up with good hiking paths with clear directions.

#HHWT Parking Tip: To avoid causing traffic congestion, we recommend that you avoid parking along Jalan Tanjong 5/4 that leads to the forest park. Head over to the alternative parking spaces at Lembah Pantai Community Centre in Kampung Kerinchi and Taman Rimba Bukit Kerinchi instead. These parking spaces can accommodate approximately 100 vehicles each.

There’s a great place to satiate your craving for grilled fish and that is Gerai Seri Menanti. The grilled fish (or ikan bakar) is wrapped in banana leaf and then cooked on a hot plate instead of a barbecue pit. Apart from ikan bakar, grilled squid is also a popular choice among customers. The seafood is fresh, and this translates to the delicious grilled fish and squid served at the stall.

8. Bukit Kutu, Kuala Kubu Bharu


Credit: @adlishahvi on Instagram

Believe it or not, Bukit Kutu was previously a British colonial hill station called ‘Treacher’s Hill’. It was named after Sir William Hood Treacher who discovered this hill in 1893 while serving as a British colonial administrator until 1896. Today, hiking enthuasists continue to challenge themselves with a morning hike on Bukit Kutu.


Credit: @ewsyyd on Instagram

The fun begins after crossing two bridges that will take you through the Orang Asli village. Then, there will be a series of uphill climb where you’ll crawl underneath fallen branches and bamboo trees (watch out for the thorns!). It’s all part of the fun, and you’ll reach the top before you know it. At the top, there’s an open-air space where you can sit and rest. It’s also a good opportunity to take out your tuna sandwiches and share it with your loved ones.

#HHWT Tip: Our reader has shared that a hiking permit is needed to climb Bukit Kutu. These are the steps to apply for a hiking permit at Bukit Kutu.

  • Contact the Hulu Selangor Forest District Office (+603 6091 6131) at least one week before your hiking date
  • Fax a permission request letter to the Hulu Selangor Forest District Office at +603 6091 7533

9. Gunung Nuang, Hulu Langat


Credit: @amniamoy on Instagram

After being closed for almost a year, we’re happy to share that Gunung Nuang has reopened to the public. Known as one of Selangor’s tallest peak, they say that conquering Gunung Nuang will leave you breathless, and I have to say it’s true. I was in college when I hiked Gunung Nuang for the first time, and it was tough for someone (like me!) who prefers fries over fitness. Your legs will be sore right after, but it will give you a renewed perspective about how you can do it all if you set your mind to it.


Credit: @huitingtan on Instagram

If you want to conquer Gunung Nuang, start early to escape the afternoon heat and complete your hike in time (it takes about 6-7 hours). They have a clear pathway for hikers, so follow it and you’ll be okay. You’ll come across a few check points every now and then, so use it as a chance to sip some water.


Credit: @uyuhee on Instagram

You know you’ve reached the mid-point when you discovered a small waterfall. Cool and refreshing, you’ll realise that it’s exactly what you needed after a long hike. You can continue further to the top where the waterfall is much nicer. Wherever your final stop may be, always give yourself a pat on the back because Gunung Nuang is a challenging peak to beat.

#HHWT Tip: Our reader has informed us that a hiking permit is required to climb Gunung Nuang. You may make your payment and registration for entry at the entrance of the trail. Since Gunung Nuang was closed in the past year and reopened since March 2019, we recommend that you contact the Selangor Tengah District Forest Department a week before your visit.

Address: Gunung Nuang, Hulu Langat, Selangor
Entry and permit: RM1 (Registration can be made at the entrance of the trail)

We don’t talk about Bukit Besi as much as other hills in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor, but it does deserve a spotlight too.

Turn right and continue walking until you see the city view.
