there are tracks for jogger. Simple one was to follow the asphalt road to go around. but if you wanted to do long walk take the soil track. it leads you to the hill, trough the jungle. make sure to bring some drinking water and leave nothing but foot prints.

A good hike will always burn off those holiday calories, a very enjoyable outing with plenty of people on the tracks

Had a great time bonding with my extended family as we hike Bukit Sarang Semut. Wanted to try the higher trail of Sarang Helang but decided not to since we have children with us. Trail is equipped with ropes to assist hikers. Chairs, exercise equipments, small pool to relax and playground area for kids are available. Very clean washroom!

The most attracting place to exercise but limited car park, there are a lot of path to choose depending on your fitness level. For weekdays (afternoon) atleast come by before 4 30pm because limited of car park and for weekend (sunday morning) before 6 30 am.

The park officially close at 6:00PM so come here well before that. Some goers may stay till later but because it gets dark after 6:00PM, it is safer to be back at the entrance when there is still light. You may find yourself contented with the choices of natural outdoor activities and if lucky the rock climbing wall may be... More

The best running route if you like outdoor running. Spent two nights in the nearby Radisson Hotel. I took the both route. One through the Tasek lama itself and the other from next to Radisson Hotel. Very steep hill and its not for faint hearted. You can also see the water fall.

Infested in safe numbers of people during Fridays and weekends. Even a solo hike will feel safe. People are always friendly especially they are regulars so don't be afraid to hike solo.

There are different tracks rating from easy to difficult. The waterfall is on an easy paved track. Behind the waterfall there is a bush track going on the hill and overlooking on... More

We had a couple of hours here before we checked our of our motel and had a nice time walking around some of tracks. There's an easy loop to the waterfall, which is great for families. We then walked up a set of steep steps to a lookout area, nice views of the mosque in the city. Looking at the... More
