Our aim was to climb Bukit Tabur Extreme, the easternmost of the Klang Gate Quartz Ridge. They are apparently two routes to the peak, one from the west, starting from the end of Jalan K5 near Sunway Rydgeway at Melawati, and the other from the east, staring from Kemensah on Jalan Zooview. The route from the west is the same one that leads to Tabur Far East. We initially attempted the west path, but was hampered midway as the gate to the farm was closed and locked. Perhaps it was too early in the morning (about 7.20 am).
So we drove out to Kemensah and attempted to find the way from there. Near the end of Jalan Zooview, there is a narrow road to the left, immediately after a fishing pond. Near the end of this road is a dirt track that goes up the hill on the left. We took this path, and after walking for 15 minutes we began to suspect that it might be the wrong one. And indeed it was. The correct path is an earlier dirt track just before a cafe. Coming from Jalan Zooview, you will see (all on your left) a small tarmac road, then a dirt track, then another small tarmac road (with a sign saying Orang Asli settlement) and then another dirt track. The correct path is the first dirt track.
But as I said, we took the wrong path!
