Located in the ever-populous Ampang and Cheras districts, Saga Hill is every local hiker’s dream climb. The hill is home to a few hiking trails of varying degrees of difficulty and distance — with each trial offering its own little adventure.
Each hiking trail in Saga Hill is not accessible via the same entry point, with some located quite a distance away from each other. So you’d be wise to descend the same way you came from or you may end up having to take a taxi back to your original starting point.
There are two entry points in Cheras (Cheras Awana and Cheras Hartamas) and one in Ampang (Taman Saga). Furthermore, you should also expect this hike to be longer and tougher than other shorter hikes like Broga Hill.
While you make your way to the summit, do observe the surroundings and take in the fresh air. If you’re lucky, you may even spot some exotic wildlife including macaques and gibbons.
Certain trails will even lead you to pretty picnic spots and majestic waterfalls. Here, you may rest your feet and enjoy the chilled stream. Your fatigue will be washed away soon enough.
