Bukit (hill) Tabur (sprinkle) (or Bukit Taboh(fistfight), to some people) offers a chance for
any climbers to see KL view. In fact, it is an ideal spot to enjoy fireworks play during new year or national day.(Apart from another mountain ; Gunung Bunga Buah, near Genting)
It is an easy climb considering a six-year old kid could manage
the route. However, don't underestimate this hill. It is something like 'strolling' along the range of hill peaks that you could see from the MRR2 highway.Plus, a lil' bit of rock climbing has to be done.Sort of MI2 scene. But, it could be quite dangerous if you do not know the tricks. The climb would take around 2 hours and another 45 minutes to scale down using another route ( would pass through fruit orchard)
Assuming you are from Karak highway, and to reach the intake at Klang Gate Dam, you have to take the left corner at Melawati area. (Giant supermarket @ commercial are would be on your right). Then, you could see food stalls on your left. Just go straight till you see an aroundabout. Take 9 o'clock turn. Go straight till you reach the second roundabout and take a 12 o'clock.
Here, you would pass a residential area,then turn right at the T-junction. Follow the sloping and turning roads. Make sure you do not take the turn into any guarded houses there.
Finally, you would encounter a Y-junction and turn left. To check this junction, there is a garbage area at the middle of the junction, and a bungalow if you turn right. Keep on until you see entrance of Klang Gate Dam. But remember, you don't have to enter the dam. The intake point is beside the gate. Check out the 'wall divider' near the gate.
Or you can just PM me here. I'm more than glad to really explain the directions or
join you for the trip *wink*wink*. It's close to my home, neway!
Mountain Melawati just located off with Batu Caves, and you can reach there by following the direction from Kepong to Ampang. Just keep aware with the signboard that show 'TAMAN MELAWATI' after you passby Batu Caves.
The sight at the top is marvellous! especially in the early morning...
overall, the route is not difficult to be finished. 1 and half to 2 hours is enough to complete the route.
P/S: dun doubt! the photos were taken LOCALLY in Bukit Melawati!
