Kemensah-Lubuk Tedung (Pondok Repin LSD trail)

Crossing Sg Kelang (Klang River)

We have an ambition to get to Genting Bidai border stone from Kemensah side but we know that will take a full day (night not excluded) and risk stuck by the swollen river, given the knowledge of heavy rain everyday during this time (transition phase for the monsoons) and we actually agreed we will walk as much as we can until we feel it is time to turn back.

Along the way, mostly ATV and scrambler-carved trails, we crossed and hiked along several rivers and streams. Usual thing.

Back home, after plotting the GPS tracklog, I see Hulu Gombak Forest Reserve has many named rivers to the east of Klang Gates dam and we crossed some of them. Some of them have their sources from nearby famous peaks, as described below.
