Bukit Apek @Bukit Batu Puteh Hiking

  • By on June 14, 2009 | 3 Comments

    Bukit Apek or known as Bukit Batu Puteh was one of my hiking destination on last weekend after Broga Hill

    Bukit Apek was already famous for quite some times and my brother always ask me to join them to climb this hill since last year though monkey-tarzan

    Bukit Apek Location

    Bukit Apek was located in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur and I just try my best to remember the rout ebecause I just follow someone’s car and not familiar with Cheras.

    If you are coming from Klang direction, take a right turn heading to Cheras as you passing by Midvalley.

    Go straight until you see Plaza Phoenix on your right hand side and Petronas petrol station was on your left.

    After this part I remember that you need to make a left turn into Taman Cuepacs and the entrance of the Bukit Apek was near EconSave.

    Get a map before you plan to drive there, it will make life easier 😉

    Bukit Apek Hiking Tips

    We are heading towards the entrance of Bukit Apek, which was just nearby a housing area.

    I have asked the local people over there, approximately there will be thousands climber that comes during the weekend.

    So when you plan to climb during weekend, choose your time wisely to avoid any overcrowded group in hiking path.

    And make sure you bring sufficient water if you plan to head to the summit of Bukit Apek, 1.5 liter should be your choice.

    Wear good hiking shoes cause’ it can be quite muddy and slippery and a pair of good trekking poles will help to prevent knee injuries.

    Well, I have climb Mount Kinabalu several times and I certified Bukit Apek as the good training location before you go climb Mount Kinabalu onion-tired

    It’s even tougher than Bukit Gasing with average climbing time 2.5 hrs – 3 hrs, so prepare your water onion-sweat

    The air was fresh and you won’t feel any hot as there’s a lot of trees shading you from sunlight.

    Our hiking group just reach Station 3 and there’s few who reach Station 5 with 2.5 hours journey time onion-help

    I reach Station 3 and decide not to pursue futher to Station 5 due to insufficient water supply and the morning ‘dim sum’ was still in my digestion system monkey-vomit

    When we descend down the Bukit Apek, there is one stall selling foods like Nasi Lemak and Mee Hoon plus some herbal tea.

    I re-energized back and plan to come back to Bukit Apek…next year monkey-yes
