After that we head off straight to Kuala Kubu Baru (KKB) through the Batu Caves - Selayang - KKB road to meet up with another friend Nizam who is waiting by the Selangor Dam rest area .. with two of his anak buah tagging along. That makes all of us 8 people altogether, convoying in two cars ..
The water is very cooling to the feet .. Considering this terrain, it's best for hikers / trekkers to wear the Adidas Kampung rubber shoes .. First timers gotta be careful as you may encounter a couple of tricky Y-junctions before the real climb starts .. ;)
This way up, please .. ;) Actually the trail up was quite clear and not confusing, only at the beginning part you have to be extra careful with the Y-junctions ..
The graphs above were plotted and generated by Motion-X GPS apps .. You can see how 'steep' Bukit Kutu is .. :-)
Overall i would rate Bkt Kutu in the category of a moderate difficulty level .. One thing i learnt from this trip is to NEVER under estimate a bukit .. This one maybe 'just' a bukit (hill), but its difficulty level can challenge or tougher than some mountains (gunung) that i have climbed before.
Personally, i feel that with a height of 3,456 ft ASL, Bkt Kutu can be re-classified as a Mount or Gunung Kutu .. ;)
As with all climbs, once u reached the summit, all those tiredness and aches were 'cancelled and overwritten' by excitement and joy of success and achievements to summit that no money can buy .. making it all worth it ! .. Bukit Kutu is a must-try for all trekkers, at least once in their lifetime .. hehe ;)
