One morning at Bukit Markucing

graphicfirst

Last weekend the Firm organized a morning trek outing to Bukit Markucing or Markucing Hill Recreational Park. The park is about five kilometres from the capital and stands at one hundred and sixty-five meters above sea level.

There are a number of hills in the park and each have their own names like Bukit Nenas, Bukit Cerangin, Bukit Raban Ambok, Bukit Karamunting, Bukit Jati, Bukit Luba, Bukit Markucing, Bukit Sumbui-Sumbui, Bukit Jibus and Bukit Sipinang.

Notice there are no pics of the hills. This is because I took one look at hill number one and made a u-turn… can u spell s-t-e-e-p? To see pics of an actual trek up the hill, click here.
