Bukit Tabur East Or Bukit Tabur West in Taman MELAWATI / KLANG GATE is exciting hills to trek in Kuala Lumpur.
We enjoy going there at any time of the week, any month of the year. The air is freshest and the cool breeze is like God turning on the natural air conditioner for us to enjoy.
If you are an avid photographer, Not only it has very scenic view of mountains
and lakes in its mirrored reflection
You can encounter varieties of human behaviors sometimes, and wish you can captured them in photography.
When accidents happened, Bukit Tabur normally get unfair negative publicities and blames with unjustifiable remarks that it is dangerous.
Certain parts of Bukit Tabur and its unique terrain is indeed dangerous.
However, and factually, from experience trekking there, we know there is a lot of human factors /human behaviors in the climbing that can and has contributed to the accidents.
It’s always good reminder, no matter how much one runs marathons and put in many impressive trail miles, for every trek, we see that the below is important
Prepareness before trekking is important,
Be proper in trekking shoes and attire is important,
Be careful in every step you take is important,
Admit that you need help is important,
Awareness on safety is important,
Going in group or in buddy system, caring for each other is important,
Love nature and the life surrounding it, is most important,
Knowing there is always a human limit to what we can do is critically important,
Other than that, recognising the fact that no matter how our emotion wanting to overcome any particular challenges, it must comes with the ability to calculate the risk being taken and knowing the consequences that arise from it.
Even though one may have gone the same trek many times, each trekking journey has risk of its own.
