So, let’s get started because we’re all wanting that summer figure. Get ready to hike!

1. Broga Hill

For many people, the first place that comes to mind is. It’s a one-hour easy-to-moderate hike with beautiful sights along the route. For novices, there are some difficult sections, but you’ll definitely work up a sweat.
There are three peaks on the hill, all of which provide climbers with a panoramic view of Broga town.

2. Bukit Gasing

Bukit Gasing is one of the city’s most popular and reasonably easy hikes. People of all ages, from five years old to seventy years old, can be found here on weekends getting some type of exercise.

There are various trails to choose from, depending on how difficult you want it to be. Reaching the highest point at 160m should take one to two hours. There’s also a suspension bridge where you may walk and…take Instagram-worthy photos. So, work out and flaunt your amazing looks at the same time!

3. Taman Tugu

Here’s a route that’s great for families and beginners! Taman Tugu is our option for a family-friendly trek because the terrain is very basic and accessible to even the most inexperienced hikers. It’s ideal if you want to get a decent exercise in for a couple of hours. It’s a terrific destination to visit on weekends because it’s right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, near our famed Tugu Negara.

4. Ayer Hitam Forest Reserve

Wawasan Hill in Puchong is a good place to go if you want something a little more hard. The hill is steeper in some places than Bukit Gasing. If you have any heart problems, I’d advise you to take extra measures or avoid going here.

The trails are part of a forest reserve and are not intended to be accessible to the general public. Hikers are permitted by the forestry department and Universiti Putra Malaysia as long as they adhere to certain guidelines.

The trek to the top takes around two to three hours, and from there you can see everything of Puchong. Three trails are available, one of which has a waterfall.

5. Bukit Sri Bintang

A tiny hill near to Desa ParkCity has a 40- to 90-minute quite simple hiking track. Along the trip, there are various inclines.

There are a few paths that branch out from the main route that you may take if you want a little more of a challenge.

6. Forest Research Institude Malaysia (FRIM)

FRIM, which is located just a few minutes from the city centre, has long been a popular destination for nature lovers. This woodland and hiking trail is well maintained and has a moderate hiking difficulty rating. There are many various plant types to observe, and this one is especially good for getting some fresh air.

RM5 (non-MyKad holders)
There’s an added fee of RM15 to enter the ‘Forest Skywalk’.

7. Chilling Waterfalls

Located in Kuala Kubu Bahru, which is about an hour’s drive from Kuala Lumpur, Chiling Waterfalls is where most people go for an old-fashioned picnic-by-the-river scene. Loads of hikers can cool off in the river and play in the water after about an hour’s hike up to the scenic waterfall. Tip: bring loads of drinking water and snacks for this one! You’re going to need it when you reach the waterfall (because you realise how hungry you really are).

Entrance fee:
RM1 per person

Address :

44000 Kuala Kubu Bharu, Selangor

8. Bukit Kutu

Bukit Kutu is another one for the gramme, and when you reach the top, it’s a feast for the eyes. Take a moment to appreciate nature, and then grab your camera because you’ll want to capture the scene. Take a look (above)! Was it worthwhile to trek all the way to the top? Yes, absolutely.

Entrance fee:
RM1 per person

Address :

Kuala Kubu Bharu (Selangor)

9. Gunung Semangkok

Pine Tree Trail on Fraser’s Hill, Pahang is one of Gunung Semangkok’s beginning sites. The peak, however, lies on the border between the states of Pahang and Selangor. It is believed to be one of the more difficult paths in the Klang Valley, with a total distance of 32 kilometres.

It takes approximately eight to nine hours one trip, with a total travel time of approximately 12 to 16 hours. This hike will undoubtedly give your legs a good workout! Although it is not Selangor’s highest peak, the climb will take you through many elevation variations.

Free

10. Bukit Saga

There are a couple hiking pathways on Saga Hill, also known as Apek Hill. Some of these could take anywhere from one to two hours one way. Hikers usually come here to prepare for Mount Kinabalu or Gunung Tahan.

While the view from the summit may not be the best in the Klang Valley (unlike Bukit Tabur RIP), the trek can be a fun challenge with ropes and slopes. A waterfall is also present.

Several people have lately complained that the trail’s entry is temporarily closed, so double-check before going.

Address:
Jalan Saga 20, Taman Saga, Cheras, Kuala Lumpur
