Part of the world’s longest quartz formation, the Klang Gates Quartz Ridge, minerals and rocks found here carry a unique, rarely observed mix of schist, quartz vein and granite.
Belonging to the Hawthornden Formation, the rocks of KL East Park comprise metamorphic rock of phyllite and schist, intruded by a medium to coarse-grained granite.
At locality N 357166, E 415310, look out for a special outcrop of ±300m of metamorphic rock. Made up of quart-mica schists with a band of quartz, it has a distinct foliation and, pinch and swell texture. The only one of its kind in the area.
An unexpected change of topography about 25m high at N 357219, E 415402 opens to a 3-step mini waterfall. Upstream of this serene waterfall is a quartz vein intrusion with tree-like crystal structures. At is base, a similar intrusion runs 15cm wide with 150/80 of strike and dip.
With more than 300 species of trees, herbs, shrubs and palms, all noted for their ecological and economic value, our trees are GPS-tagged for easy conservation and reference.
Some of Malaysia’s most fascinating birds, amphibians, reptiles, butterflies, beetles and more call the forest of KL East Park home, see if you can spot them!
