Hill Walking

One of the activities that I normally do for fitness benefits is hill walking. In Kuala Terengganu, the most famous place for hill walking is Bukit Besar (there is also Bukit Kecik) and everyday you will see lots of people walking up the hill especially during weekend. I've heard many stories of people losing lots of weight by hill walking at Bukit Besar and of course these stories have inspired me a lot in my quest to weight lost and better health..

For the first timer to Bukit Besar, the walk would be quite challenging especially if you are 'heavy'. At certain places, the track is quite steep that you would find it's really challenging to move on..I can still remember my first hill walking experience at Bukit Besar- my husband had to constantly pushed me up all the way up to the top... However, after a few trials the walks became easier and now I could even run up the hill. Some people even go up and down for many times!


I enjoy the crisp smell and sounds of nature as we walk up the hill .


Walking up the hill... My daughter was leading..we were all left behind


The last few steps before one reach the top! It took me about 20 minutes to reach the top..


At the top of Bukit Besar.. My daughter was the first to reach the top and my son was the last one..





Then, we saw ada orang pengsan la pulak! It was the girl's first time!
Some of the greatest rewards from hill walking are the views you get from the top of the hill.


The view from the top..I could even see the South China Sea!

To me, hill walking is an excellent stress reliever and our body also burn more fat. That's why I enjoy doing it.....
