A short but steep circuit up to the Bukit Tabur East (Dragons Back) ridge, with great views over Kuala Lumpur and the Klang Gates Dam.

Steep climb up to the ridge, then pretty easy. There is one large rock face near the end that you need to scramble up (you can skip this but worth it for the views), with lots of handholds - try and avoid using the rope, or test before putting any weight on it. Early morning on a clear day is best. Avoid if wet or raining. https://hikingtheworld.blog/2020/01/09/bukit-tabur-east-dragons-back.

Insane trail. Amazing fun, but not for beginners. The way we went we had to smear ourselves in mud to stop the mosquito hell. Climb was crazy mud steps and muddy slopes but not too long and got to a peak. To the right was a rope to climb to the higher peak (tough climb but worth it). We stopped for a while for photos and drinks at the top of the mid peak. On the way back there were many rocky and risky edges to climb over and on the descent much of it was ropes to hold to because the decline was insane and a fall would be a serious injury. The forest swamp started to become more consuming again toward the last 20mins and vines were beautiful. WELL WORTH THE EFFORT FOR THE VIEWS! We saw nobody the whole time check out the pics
