Different crystals have different energies and properties, and between them can affect mental, physical, spiritual and emotional aspects of ourselves. Simply holding the right crystal at the right time can bring about a change in our attitude and well-being.
For many years, humans have discovered that natural crystal consists of “Energies” that can help individuals recover from illnesses.
The right crystal can affect the energy of an environment, and the energy it holds can influence you whether you simply hold it in your hand or place it in your room. Crystal healers use their knowledge of the stones and of the patient in the healing process.

This Tabur Ridge is a long and narrow series of karst hills with a high content of Quartz crystals. The ridge itself, averaging 200 feet high, runs in a semi circle bordering the eastern edge of Kuala Lumpur city. The Tabur Hill Ridge is rated the Longest Quartz-Rich Ridge in the world. Quartz is one of the three common components in the formation of rocks.
Quartz-Rich Ridge - as the names implies, the trails and surfaces around the Ridge is littered with Quartz crystals (Individually or in clusters, large and small). The Quartz here varies from totally transparent to semi opaque, with most of them whitish in colour. You can see them shimmering on the ground reflected by sunlight as like mirror reflections.
Each morning the air over Kuala Lumpur warms up as sure as the sun rises. On another front, the moisture-laden clouds formed over the Ulu Klang Dam too are lifted. The rate at which those over Kuala Lumpur are lifted is more rapid. Those cooler clouds over the body of water are influenced to join those down the valley by this parallel thermal lift. In their exodus, they pour over the dam in a current. See this phenomenon of a river of clouds drifting over the pass each morning around 7.30am. You have to be standing on the top of the ridge to get that view. The clouds passing below you is a gift for your waking up wakeup -a spectacular sight indeed!
The trail is a narrow path on top of the Ridge with some stretches only allowing a single trekker to pass through. The trail passes through stretches where the left and right side have vertical drops of up to 200 feet, leaving the trekker with not much room for any other alternatives. The trail is dotted with low vegetation, made up mostly of small trees and shrubs (affectionately known amongst the trekkers as “Bonsai”). This low vegetation enables you to see and gauge the distance between one peak to another.
Don’t worry, despite the constraint in width, there is always some level ground to rest your feet before guiding your body past some tricky footholds.
You can complete the whole ridge within 2 to 4 hours, starting from the eastern side and finishing on the western side of the ridge. No worry about any altitude sickness, as it is just low and classified as hill !
It is an adventure day trip with a great view; do check out the Tabur Hill.
