Discovery trip to Bukit Kutu

On 2nd May 2009, a group of 15 hikers set to hike Bukit Kutu in effort to discover an old colonial bungalow chimney atop the hill. They set off from our usual Lafuma Bangsar shop in convoy and reached Kampung Pertak at about 8.30am. It was a successful climb with discovery of the intended old chimney and rewarded with a superb view of the neighbouring hilly area. The trip ended at about 6pm before we call it a day. Below the sequence of event during the whole trip for your sharing.
