Reason of my visit: Seen some really nice picture from Tabur before, so wanted to photograph it myself.

Bukit Tabur at KL, standing at approximately 450m is errr ... not that hard to hike up, but it can be really dangerous if you are not careful ... here are some pictures from Tabur......
TO the untrained eye, Bukit Batu Tabur is a not too high a hill in the form of something like a pre-historic animal's backbone guarding the congested Ulu Kelang and Gombak residential neighbourhoods.
More serious climbers and adventurers look at its nine bulges and ragged cliffs as training ground for a more challenging tilt at Gunung Tahan, Mount Korbu or Mount Kinabalu.
The limestone ridge is actually a favourite weekend hideout for Klang Valley's climbers, joggers and nature lovers. In a claim to some distinction, it has also been touted as the longest quartz ridge in the world.
Be there in a weekend morning or afternoon and the usually quiet place will come alive with its regular visitors performing their favourite physical rituals after a hectic working week.
With its unique physical feature of a long outcrop, Bukit Batu Tabur has only two choice of trails – both start at each end of the rock.
