Bukit Lanjan Hill Trail

Average Rating:    (3.6 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 5

An all uphill ride through semi tar road passing into virgin jungle . The view at the top is breath taking . Cool place for downhill riding too , but a little dangerous as there are many steep and sharp corners .

Summary:
Some rich guy is building a house right on the halfway point up; really smack in the middle of a jungle up there. Hope he has some good bomoh as that area used to be an orang asli "hot" area and riding up there at night should shoot the adrenaline levels skyhigh! Awesome night view of KL, PJ, and even Subang Jaya though.

Recommended Route:
See the new "Tesco" at Mutiara Damansara. Park your car there and ride up the road leading up the foothills, you can't miss it. Just head for the hill with a couple of TV transmission towers on its peak. If I am not mistaken, the peak has a sign stating it is 1,200 ft from sea-level.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
1. Bkt. Kiara trial, assuming the ongoing highway project does not spoil it.

Summary:
Wuuhh, one hell of a climb man! Much harder during the haze enveloping the area. Going down is one hell of a ride. Wonder what it feels like going over the cliff and landing on tree "ala" Rambo-like in his first movie!?

Recommended Route:
Take the LDP after 1-Utama towards Kepong and take the off-ramp towards the hills, go past the security guard house and make sure it's not "blasting hours" at the rocks above.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
1. The Bukit Kiara "water tank" on hill ride.

Summary:
High slopes and tight corners.. sandy road at the foot of the hill. Any Speed demons haven for going down hill. dangerous if rinding downhill at high speeds.. but.. whatheheck! its fun.. my as well do it. but be carefuk though,, a wrong turn will send u flying off the cliff..

Recommended Route:
Ride down about 6 kilometers from kepong baru . the hill can be seen clearly from kepong. Turn in a junction when u see the sign "bukit lanjan " located at the junction. Go straight all the way passing under an overhead bridge and u r on yer way!!

Summary:
One bloody High hill man! This one is not for the beginners. Beginners will have to stop several times before they reach the top . Some might even give up .
At a few places , The gradient of the road is too steep
and u might have to push your bikes up (beginners).
At the top , u are able to see the whole of Kepong town. If u ever get to climb the control tower.. u can see the whole of Kuala lumpur and Shah alam as well as the whole Petaling jaya. Its one of the coolest hills for downhill riding. Beginners .. note that u should not try speeding down this hill. Good brakes required
for this hill. Lotsa sharp corners and drains on the way which might need u to brake often. Riders are advised to have good tires and brakes before speeding downhill. Very challenging downhill course!!!!!
3 for the whole track. 5 for the downhill experience!!!

Recommended Route:
ride along the road leading to Kepong from Bandar utama
Then turn left when u see a signboard showing "Bukit Lanjan"

Summary:
A Darn steep uphill ride with winding roads and sharp corners . Goin up might be tough for beginners , but the downhill ride is cool ! speeds up to 70km/h can be acheived for experts riding downhill , but beware of the sharp corners.. one mistake might take you flying off the cliff !!!

Recommended Route:
ask the locals around there for directions .
