Bukit Besi is located in the Alam Damai area, Cheras KL. The is a 4 square kilometer patch of greenery and on the summit, there are 3 telecommunication towers. There are a number of pathways you can take up, but, the general rule of thumb is to pick the path that goes upwards. You start off with a tarred section but slowly move into a trail kind of terrain. It is however fairly easy to navigate through. You will be rewarded with the city views and a very nice breeze atop.
This is a fairly short climb, only a 3 km hike, so if you’re looking for something more challenging – go up it twice!
