The Trail Location
Bukit Kutu located at the end of Jalan Pertak, after Kuala Kubu town. It is very convenience if you use WAZE , just search “ Gunung Kutu Parking “ , the WAZE will lead you there. It took me 1 Hrs 30 Min from Klang.
Followed the Waze Location, I reached to the Kampung , At the end of the road you can see a Futsal Field on the left side , just go straight , will pass through a Local guard house.
RM 1 per pax entrance fee collected. After that, continue drive further in will reach to the car park. We reached there about 8.00 am, already have a lot of car there. If you arrive late, the car park inside may fully occupied. You may need to park your car at the Futsal Field outside and walk in.
The trail started when you reach to the hanging bridge. There are 2 bridges, one was broken.
There is local people sell durian beside the bridge, may be you can take a durian breakfast here. haha.
Walk along the bridge, noticed there is a lot people camping on the side of the river. i think should be a famous camping site. After the bridge, saw a stack of Durian, and the local villages transferring the durian by motorbike. With muddy road condition, the biker must really skillful
Yeah ! The condition of the second bridge!! , it was broken and the bike still can drive Through!! But it still safe to walk through, but be careful !
After 10 min, we reach a junction, we don’t know which way to go, after we asked people around. we go RIGHT. After 5 Min, there got another junction. Go Right too.
Then you will need to cross the river, NO bridge this time. You can step on the rock to cross or you take off your shoes and go through the river. Be careful when you step on the rock. Is very slippery.
After the river, there villages Resting Hut on left side, Go Right to continue the Trail, very muddy road and surrounded by the bamboo forest.
There is some nice bamboo scene.
Jackfruit tree. A lot of small jack fruit.
After 45min , Here a tree that full of root. The root looks so unique on the floor.
The last water point
A ruined place, the bamboo and tree topple over like after war. But we still able to crossed it . overall hike the trail slope is high, like climbing the ladder.
After, 2 Hrs hike, we reached to Batu Tedung , a huge rock . very stunning huge rock. This is the signature landmark for Bukit Kutu.
Another scenic view, here have a lot of thin and tall tree, behind there is Mountain View. The time we can see the cloud drift through the mountain. The cloud come close become mist . very cool !
Some interesting stuffs captured
A Vine climb on plant like a snake
Finally after 4 hours with sweated like rainfall, we had reached to the peak. You can see a chimney like building behind it .
There a lot of hikers gather on the peak. The highest rock only accessible through ladder.The highest rock only can occupy 3-4 people. So we line up and take turn to climb up for photo. Suddenly the rain come and the mist very heavy. We can’t see the clear view after we are on the highest location.
After that we heading to the old ruin building that 10 min hike from further trial behind . the trail quite narrow. We get to follow a group of hikers along the way .
Ruin build, very historical feel. We had simple lunch with bread and coffee before we climb down.
When we going down, the rain was off and on. have to put on raincoat. There a lot of mist too .
It take us 2 Hrs to reach to car park.
Ya. My safety shoe condition after hike. Overall i felt good in the trail, Hiking help me relax and take some fresh air from natural . Hope you enjoy the Hike too.
