Trekking at Bukit kutu
Jan 2019 • Friends
Journey from Singapore Woodlands to Bukit Kutu took us about 8 hours. Had a light breakfast before we start our ascend. There is a short walking distance to the entrance of the trail. There is a bridge which is partly fallen to one side to cross. As you trek further down, you will need to cross a small stream. You can take out your shoes if you dont want to get wet. The trail starts after crossing the stream. The route is pretty incline and you will need to use your both hands to pull you upwards. You will pass by a rocky area which is known as the cobra rock. Suggest to bring along a trekking stick to aid you when going down. The trek is a mixtures of steep incline and flat roads. I would recommend to rest along the road so that it is safer. The steps up seems very obvious for you to step. Seems like a lot of people are hiking the trail. I took about 3 hours to reach the submit. You will need to climb up the ladder to the top of the rock to take a good picture.

Overall, it is a good trail with a good mix of incline and even road.

Enjoyable Hike!!
Aug 2018 • Friends
The starting point to hike Bukit Kutu is at Kg. Sg. Pertak, Kuala Kubu Bharu (KKB). The town KKB is located about 1-hour drive from KL. We started our journey in the wee hours of Saturday morning. Reaching KKB just before the Sun fully showed itself, we managed to catch a glimpse of the magnificent view of the sunrise that morning, and it looked just like Aurora!

We had our breakfast at the market. The nasi lemak & kuih still have the ‘grandma’s-cooking’ taste. Yummy! Packed some kuih to be our ‘power bank’ – those were the exact words of our sifu Abg. Olan – for the hike that day.

Please note that permit is required before the hike. After settling all the necessary documentation at the police station, off we go to the starting point of Bukit Kutu. Parking area was provided. Public toilet however, was not around; you need to either go knocking on the doors of the orang asli there, or go behind the bushes or trees. Then take a walk about 10 minutes to reach the 1st bridge. Good warm-up.

The cold river looks so inviting.. you can go for a dip after the hike later. Suitable for young children. For the more adventurous ones, may go up to Lata Medang which is on the left at the Y-junction later. It will take about 1 hour hike from this junction.

Along the way, there’re lots of fruit trees, durian, bacang. The forest smelled so wonderful – sweet smelling ripen fruits & morning dew.

There’re 3 river crossings; 1 & 2 crossings are by the bridges. Be careful on the 2nd bridge – it is slippery & slanted a little bit. Step & balance yourself on the wood provided, not on the metal deck. I paid the price of not listening to our sifu; lost my balance & tumbled at the 2nd bridge hahahaa.. The 3rd crossing is either by stepping on the stones or to simply wade thru the cold river. It is recommended to wear hiking sandals, and then change to hiking shoes once u passed this 3rd river crossing.

Trek is going uphill all the way after that. Make sure you take sufficient amount of breakfast before the hike; not too much, not too little. For me, usually I’ll take nasi goreng before this kind of hike, but as I was lazy to search around the market for nasi goreng, I settled for nasi lemak & Teh O.

Trek is clearly marked; however is it always better to be walking in pairs or more. It hasn’t rain for the past 2 weeks; hence the soil is a little bit slippery due to small loose stones. If it rains, then it’ll be a different kind of slippery (which is much worse, I reckon).

Before reaching the top, there’s a small pathway between 2 big rocks that u need to squeeze yourself a little bit.

Going downhill was a little bit easier than climbing, but be careful not to exert too much pressure on the knees.

To summarise, the hike itself was not that difficult actually. But having said that, fitness is a definitely a pre-requisite. If u have been doing regular hikes to a few hills before, then you should be able to enjoy every moment of the hike. And the most important thing is – no leech!!!! Hehehh..

We stopped by the food court in front of Masjid KKB to fill-up our tummies after the hike. Nasi goreng kambing salai + ABC Special totally made the day!!

Moderate Difficulty hike with 360 Views From Peak
Aug 2018 • Friends
Direction signage where available if you lose your way at the junctions.
One is leading to campsite while the other is to bukit Kutu peak. You will cross 3 water stream. Likely your shoes will get wet or you can remove to cross the stream and then continue. Steep climb all the way up. Couple of highlight points for good photo sessions.

Great spot for hiking, beautiful waterfalls and place to swim. 1090m hiking achievement with my wife start from 7am and reached the peak at 9:50am. I would say a very challenging trail.

Amazing view
Jul 2018 • Friends
I'm not sure what is your purpose of hiking, but for myself is just a form of exercise and if the weather permit I would be able to enjoy the view which is a bonus.

It took me 2hrs 40min to climb up and another 2 hrs 05 descending. Just a few minutes stop to catch a breath.

For a note, your shoe will get wet from the beginning..maybe you can take off your shoe before crossing.

Really worth the hike, amazing view!

Moderate hike
Jul 2017 • Friends
I would rate Bukit Kutu as moderate. About half the toughness of Gunung Nuang Trail. There are rivers along the trail and many suitable camping sites. I would recommend camping here too. Tips:

1. Wear water proof or rubber shoes.
2. Insect repellent if you are sensitive to insects. - there were beehives along the pass in the past.
3. Bring at least 2 liters of water
4. At least 4 bread buns.
5. 1 bottle of isotonic drink.
6. Leeches are not expected but just in case wear long stockings.

Bukit Kutu, a solid hiking experience
May 2018 • Friends
Don't let the name, bukit or hill fool you. The long trail and steep climb makes Bukit Kutu a solid hiking experience and ddfinitely worth it.

If you are moderately fit, it should take you about 3 hour or less to get to the peak from the carpark and another 1.5-2 hour down. We started our hike early in the morning at 7.20 am-ish and reached the peak at 10.30 am, with a few 2-3 minutes break in between.

The first 30 minutes is a moderate walk to the foot of the hill and after crossing the 4th river, the real hike began. The first 5 checkpoint is the hardest with steep ascend in between. After checkpoint 5, it is another 40 minutes hike to the peak.

The view at the peak are very rewarding if the weather is good. But be very vigilant as you have to climb steel ladder to get the panoramic view.

Great work out up the hill.
Mar 2018 • Friends
It was our 1st time hiking here. The place is beautiful with clear river at the foot of the hill where we saw many picnickers enjoying themselves. The trails are challenging and pretty tough for a slow and beginner hikers like us but the view of the big rocks and jungle foliage on the way up are really great treats to sore eyes and feet. Took us almost 6 hours of hiking up and then down to our starting point and even though it was extremely tiring; we truly enjoyed the hike and the view from Bukit Kutu.
