Head towards Ampang Town. After Ampang Waterfront, turn right at the Bukit Belacan traffic lights junction (D). If you are on course, you should see the new Carrefour immediately on your right. Go uphill and turn left at the traffic lights (E) where you see the sign to Kajang.

Info / Insights: This 'official' lookout point has a history as colourful as the sunsets visible from up there. It used to be a popular spot for joggers, families and couples. Then it was closed for a while when the previous administration got spooked by reports of couples coupling there at night. A noisy tom-yam-karaoke restaurant on the bottom remained the only attraction after that.

Then, the place was suddenly privatised and re-opened with several new restaurants at the top. There is now a RM2 parking fee but parking is chaotic as there is very little space on the hilltop. Even the car jockeys (additional RM 3) have trouble parking. It may be a good idea to park below and take a short walk uphill.

When there is a nice sunset, the panoramic view of the KL skyline is gorgeous even from the inside of the restaurants. For the more energetic, there is a wooden observation tower (menara tinjau) to climb, further up.

The restaurants up there (at the time of writing) are: The Gasoline Steamboat-In-An-Artificial-Cave Restaurant, Lookout Point Western Food Restaurant and Haven Restaurant. The restaurants are supposed to be opened till 2:30 am on weekdays and 3:00 am on weekends.

Halfway up, is the strangely named Cope Bonding Resort ( As you might have guessed, it is one of those places for corporate team-building, paintball, camping and other outdoor adventure activities that are ever so popular these days.

There is an 'unofficial' look-out point at about 1.3 km before this (N3 07.562 E101 47.223). The view there can be just as spectacular as seen in the picture above. See also this picture from 2005 when it was relatively unknown.

It started as a makeshift make-out place, but the road is now tarred as it has been turned into a gazetted downhill shortcut to Taman Mulia Jaya and Taman Sri Intan. The necking folks and the hawkers started showing up in droves. As a result, the spot is strewn with rubbish, marring what was once a clean and dark lookout point.

This place is popular because there is safety in numbers, I guess. Families, couples and hawkers huddle together under the streetlights at night. At least, the amourous couples appear to be safe from muggers and uniformed predators.

If you and your family are the adventurous sort, there are more things to do in the day time. Drive further up to Pekan Batu 14 and explore the beautiful Semenyih Dam ahead. Or check out the many waterfalls and picnic spots that abound in the Hulu Langat area. At night, you might want to also visit the other famous Look Out Point (Siew Wan Tang - Mini Genting) of nearby Bukit Permai.

Be aware that during Merdeka and New Year's eve, the hilly road leading to the look-out points can be choked with vehicles. Big crowds gather there to watch the multiple fireworks display of the Klang Valley.
