Bukit Tabur Revisit (18 Oct 2008)

Image
It has been awhile before we are back to Bukit Tabur again. However, this time we will be heading to Bukit Tabur East instead of West as previously. A group of 16 people has signed up for the climb to this infamous Klang Dam Gate Quartz Ridge. We started our journey at the foothill where the Syabas water authority were but on the east side instead of the west side and following the huge water pipe from the dam. We cross a small river before meeting the rest of the hikers at the starting point. A safety briefing and ice-breaking session was conducted by our guide, Apip before ascending the hill.



The terrain was steep and mixed with some mild rock climbing session. On certain section, we have to pull on the ropes provided in order to continue on our journey. Although the hike is short but it is pretty demanding as we not only need to use our leg but our biceps as well. A trek and climb for an hour paid handsomely with a nice scenery and view of the city at the peak. We could also see the…

Exploratory Trail at Kota Damansara Community Forest

Image
On 14 September 2008 a group of 14 people from LMAG have set to explore forest nearby our KL city namely Kota Damansara Community Forest. It is one of the few green lung left within the city vicinity apart from Bukit Gasing in PJ, Taman Tun Dr Ismail & Mont Kiara Forest Reserve, FRIM in Kepong, Bukit Tabur in Taman Melawati and Bukit Apeh in Cheras. The Kota Damansara Community Forest is rich with biodiversity of flora and fauna just like Bukit Gasing in PJ. The forest area was huge and one can hike from Kota Damansara to Bukit Lanjang as well as to Sungai Buloh R&R at Plus NSE Highway area.


All of us set to meet at the starting point at 7.45am instead of the usual place at our Lafuma Bangsar outlet. The guide for the trip was none other than Apip and Ng being the sweeper for the day. We have a light safety briefing and introduction session before we head for the trail at about 8am. The trail started on the left of the community shade and seems to be easy. However within a few …

Lafuma in Kilimanjaro

Image
Sometime in early July 2008, a lovely couple, Steve and Emma both Lafuma members have pledged to fund raise for UNICEF to help the children in developing countries on their charity and fund climb to Mount Kilimanjaro (5,985m), Tanzania, Africa. They are back recently with a successful mission by not only raising more funds than what they have set earlier but also summitted to the one of the highest mountain in Africa! Total funds raised to date was 1,600 Pound!

Let's congratulate Steve and Emma for their challenging feats and their determination is definitely something we should learn from. Well with a total of six days expedition mission (from 21/7/08 to 26/7/08) to summit the gigantic mountain, the story from both of them is well worthwhile to read. For those who intend to summit this African highest peak, you should not miss this valuable tips from this couple. Read their tales at http://journals.worldnomads.com/steve_and_emma/
