What to Expect?

NOTE: This forest is adjacent to the sister forest - Taman Rimba Bukit Kerinchi.

Bukit Gasing Forest Reserve (Gasing Hill) is the green lung situated between Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya. It is a secondary forest stretching more than 100 hectares. Visitors may not be aware that this lush jungle was once an abandoned rubber estate.





Thanks to nature’s miraculous power of nature. This area surrounded by the concrete jungle had restored into the sanctuary of various flora and fauna in the past sixty years. Today Gasing Hill, as the locals called it, has become the haven of hikers and nature lovers.





Gasing Hill is an excellent place for family outings and activities, at the same time appreciating the beauty of nature, listening to the earth’s melody spiritually. Visitors are from all walks of life, colors, young and old even mother cradling babies, and senior walking with his dog.

Apart from hiking, visitors like to have picnics there too! As there are several trails in Bukit Gasing, it can appear confusing to some, though the problem can easily be solved by downloading a trail map in your mobile devices.






Bukit Gasing Entrances

Set between Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya, Bukit Gasing has two entrances. The main entrance is in Petaling Jaya while the other entrance is located in Kuala Lumpur.

1. Bukit Gasing Entrance (Petaling Jaya)
Parking at the Petaling Jaya entrance is limited. Hence, it’s best that you carpool with your friends if you’re coming in a large group. Otherwise, I would suggest the second entrance in Kuala Lumpur with ample parking spaces. Avoid yellow lines as there is strict enforcement in the area.

How to get here: Key in ‘Hutan Pendidikan Bukit Gasing’ or ‘Bukit Gasing’ in Waze or Google Map.

GPS Coordinate: 3.095117, 101.656032

2. Taman Rimba Bukit Kerinchi (Kuala Lumpur)
If you key in ‘Bukit Gasing’ in Waze or Google Map, by default, you will be brought to the Petaling Jaya entrance. With that being said, those who intend to park at Taman Rimba Bukit Kerinchi need to key in ‘Taman Rimba Bukit Kerinchi’ instead.

GPS Coordinate: 3.103245, 101.660825

Most of the trails here will take one to two hours to finish. Depending on your fitness level, you can attempt different trails in a day as they are interconnected. With that being said, Bukit Gasing not only has many trails, but it also has many interesting landmarks and highlights along its trails too!

    Great place hidden in the city centre for a nice hike. The hiking here was relatively easy, at least for some beginners. Its really easy to get food around after the hike as well!

    Lovely place for a hike with well trodden path and many cross sections so you can't get lost. Very helpful locals who can point you in the direction you need. Choose your routes carefully since some can be quite strenuous for the newly initiated. Only issue is some hikers love to play loud music while hiking, which spoils the ambience of a nature walk.
