Hiking in Bukit Kiara – The Road Less Travelled

The last time we visited Kiara, we took the asphalt trail but as we’ve said – it’s not jungle school unless you get a little dirty, so we went back to follow the road less travelled. Well, less travelled compared to the asphalt trail anyway.

From what I gather, these trails are popular MTB trails so I’m gathering that the weekends may not be a good time to hike. When we went, we only encountered one mountain biker – the rest were hikers. There are many, many trails in there and it takes you all the way to Sri Hartamas – which is actually not that far – but you probably don’t want to forget where you entered so you don’t end up having to pay for a cab fare to get back.

Bukit Kiara makes for a rather lovely hike with scenic views (minus the early part of the trail where all the rubbish is)…

It was our first time visiting so we haven’t explored the area fully but what little we saw was mostly pretty easy compared Bukit Gasing or Bukit Saga.

These were my Polar Beat stats for our hiking session (although I should add that I think my fitness has also improved significantly).

Getting There

Bukit Kiara

We entered through Taman Lembah Kiara – there is a dirt path entry from the car park. Although you can part on Changkat Abang Haji Openg and enter through one of the many exits point along the asphalt trail.
