Kuala Lumpur – A Different Perspective

North west of Kuala Lumpur city centre lies a unique rock ridge known as Klang Gates Quartz Ridge and from the summit you can obtain some beautiful and different views of the city skyline. The ridge is rather special geologically as it stretches for over 22 kilometers, is only about 200 meters wide and is made up almost purely of quartz. The walk although strenuous is not too difficult and the scramble to the summit can be done in 2 hours or less. As you climb there are panoramic views all around over the tropical jungle and the water reservoirs and you can also note ecosystem changes if you look carefully at the flora and fauna.
