Last Sun­day, Sophea, Kah Wai and I went to cycle at Taman Per­tan­ian Malaysia, Shah Alam.

Sophea

We woke up very early in the morn­ing. Early as in 6 o’clock in the morning!

We gath­ered and headed to Shah Alam.

First stop, break­fast. We couldn’t find any McD on the way so ended up hav­ing KFC breakfast.

KFC breakfast

Dis­ap­pointed because KFC break­fast sucks and it’s expen­sive. McD break­fast is still the best.

We reached there around 8:40AM and to our sur­prise, there were so many peo­ple already.

Crowd

With­out delay, we quickly rent our bikes and hit the road right away.

Getting ready

The park is very big and it has a lot of inter­est­ing stops.

We decided to explore the whole park start­ing from the left side.

After around 20 min­utes of cycling, I saw a sign board that reads,

Your visit to this park is not com­plete if you do not climb the stairs of the Cher­akah Tower.

Cherakah Tower's sign board

So we climbed the stairs to get to the top of a small hill to find the Celaka Cher­akah Tower.

Stairs

The stairs was so damn high. By the time we reached the tower, we were all sweat­ing like crazy.

The girls and the tower

The tower was rusty and it has noth­ing much to see up there, so we did not go up.

We came down, and con­tin­ued our journey.

When we fin­ished explor­ing the left side, I sug­gested to take a road that cuts through the park which will even­tu­ally leads us to the other side of the park.

But very soon I was proved how wrong I was to make that deci­sion because the road was a very very very very steep sloop.

We couldn’t ride any more but to push the bikes. It was the hard­est part of all. Very tir­ing and exhausting.

Pushing up hill

Finally we reached the peak which is called the Artistes Sum­mit. Camwhore kao kao first before we leave the summit.

Going down the hill was the best part. We need almost no effort to cycle and we can enjoy the speed and cool­ing breeze.

Next stop, the Ani­mal Farm. It was quite a long stay as we were look­ing at ani­mals like ostrich, horse, par­rot, rab­bit and many more.

Birds fly away

Then we headed to the Four Sea­sons House. We had to pay addi­tional RM3 to go in.

Entering Four Seasons House

The cur­rent sea­son is sum­mer and the tem­per­a­ture inside is 15°C–20°C.

Garden

The view was very beau­ti­ful but we were not allowed to step into the garden.

River

It was almost noon when we left the Four Sea­sons House.

So we headed to our last stop which is a lake-facing-3-stories-tower.

The tower

We climbed to the high­est plat­form and then we thought, “why not we have our pic­nic here?”

So we took out the sand­wiches and salad we pre­pared the day before and started eat­ing like crazy.

Picnic

The food tasted extra nice. Maybe because of the sur­round­ing or maybe we were just too hungry.

We fin­ished the food, we packed and we cycled back to where we started.

My bicycle

The trip was really fun and exciting.

Def­i­nitely will go back there one more time to expe­ri­ence the Skytrex Adventure.

P/S: My calves and ass still pain until now.

P/P/S: More pho­tos on my Face­book Album.

Update: Watch the video of this trip.
