No camping allowed in Kuala Lumpur, says DBKL

THOSE who operate campsites in Kuala Lumpur are doing so at their own risk, says Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL).

A DBKL spokesperson said the city did not have any regulations or by-laws on campsites hence anyone who set up a campsite or conduct camping activities should be aware of the risks involved.

“Unlike Selangor, we don’t have campsites in Kuala Lumpur so there is no need for laws to regulate them,” added the spokesperson.

“We do have jungle trekking and jogging sites in Bukit Nanas and Sungai Besi but no camping (is allowed).”

“Scouts conduct their camping training on school football fields. People generally tend to go to Selangor for camping.”

The spokesperson was commenting on the landslide that occurred last Dec 16 at Father’s Organic Farm in Batang Kali and the need to regulate campsites. – By BAVANI M
