Trail: Lotus Temple (Lian Hua Dong Temple)

I guessed I can write a series of trails those brunches off from Air Itam Dam and Sungai Ara. For the past 1-2 months I have blogged about 4 trails that just lead from Air Itam Dam trail. Total I have blogged about 5 pages just about this place. And today, I am going to add an additional trail to it.

Lotus

If you all have follow my blog closely, there is an alternative route that lead to Air Itam Dam and I am going to continue with this trail. This is a very short ride with just 1.9km going up but the climbed is 303m. If you ride Carpet regularly and you think Carpet is hard, then this tougher. Carpet is 3km and with just a little bit above 300m height.

How to get here? This trail is actually a continuance from my previous blog. You may refer to this link – Alternative route to Air Itam Dam. Then, you can continue with the pic below where the Tua Peh Kong Temple is. Also, this is where the hut is located. You will need to take right path instead of going thru the hut. Actually, they are all interconnected as you can see it from the map above.

As you are pedaling up to Tua Peh Kong Temple and if the steepness is already killing you. The route to Lotus Temple will not get any easier. It is getting tougher with higher gradient. But, the max gradient is 27 degree.

The very last part of trail looks very steep but it is only 19 degree gradient. It is one of the toughest too as you will need to turn and going up the sloop. Probably need to off the saddle to conquer this.
