Bukit Gasing Forest Reserve is a 100 hectare stretch of green belt dividing the city of PetalingJaya (Selangor state) from the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur. It was once a rubber estate but,in the intervening 60 years, the miraculous restorative powers of nature have been allowed towork their magic and the park is now a haven of lush secondary forest including some prettylarge trees.
Being surrounded by heavily populated areas, Bukit Gasing is a popular place for nearbyresidents to stretch legs, get the lungs and heart working and sweat off any extra weight.There are a number of hiking trails within the park to suit all levels of energy and fitness.
The highest point in the park (presumably Bukit Gasing which means 'Top Hill') is about 160meters. That makes it a baby hill by Malaysian standards but there are a number of steep slopesin the park (including one called the Abu Baker Slope) and it is a good place to get in sometraining for more challenging peaks.
