This trail climbs Bukit Tabur Extreme, the easternmost of the Klang Gate Quartz Ridge. There 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. Coming from Jalan Zooview, you will see on the 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. Take the first dirt track, and it will lead up the ridge. There will be a lone hut with a zinc roof along the way. The path splits into two at this point - take a right and continue uphill. The path basically goes parallel to the ridge westwards, on the north side of the peaks. Both the left and right paths continue further to the next peaks eastward and westward respectively.

Tabur West: Great hike, a bit of a scramble at times, and a really rewarding sunrise. There are ropes and handles planted in the rocks which help massively. If you go all the way up and continue after the busy sunrise people gathering, there are 2-3 steep bits with no ropes or handles so you just need to be a but careful. The whole Tabur West loop can easily be done in less than 2.5 hours without too many stops.

Great trail, some difficult portions to climb but good ropes etc to help you. Can be challenging if you’re scared of height, but great quick hike close to KL
