Broga Hill

This morn­ing I went hik­ing at Broga Hill, Semenyih with How Zen and his brother.

I’ve heard so much about this hill all over the blog­sphere and face­book but this is the first time I step my foot on the hill.

Broga Hill

We reached the bot­tom of the hill — which is a palm oil farm — around 9.30 AM and there were so many peo­ple already (pic­ture below was taken after we came down).

Palm oil farm

We grabbed our cam­eras and started the journey.

Entering the forest

When we were going up, many peo­ple already com­ing down.

Along the way, we saw a lot of peo­ple bring­ing their dogs to hike. Should be some pets club or something.

Climbing steps

The jour­ney was harder then I thought. Exhausted and sweat like crazy.

Crossing obstacles

We took around 30 min­utes to pass through the forest.

We were rewarded with a spec­tac­u­lar view already even when we have not reach the peak yet.

Half of the journey

We stopped for awhile to take pic­tures while cool­ing our­self down. Then we con­tin­ued our journey.

Keep climbing

And finally we reached the first peak.

First flat peak

From the first peak, we then con­tinue to climb to the sec­ond peak.

Second flat peak

We reached the sec­ond peak and started tak­ing pic­tures here and there.

Panorama view from the peak

Click on the pic­ture above to view big­ger size of the panoramic view (1280px × 283px).

We didn’t con­tinue to the third peak because it seems noth­ing much up there.

Third peak

It was a cloudy morn­ing so when the cool wind blows it was really refreshing.

I was expect­ing to see a lot of twitch grass up there but it seems like the sea­son was over. So there were not much left.

Twitch grass

We spent like an hour up there before we came down.

Com­ing down was so so easy because all we need to to is just slide down the sloop all the way to the bot­tom of the hill.

Sliding

Just jok­ing lah. Slid­ing down was just a small sloop. We still need to climb down the hill and pass through the forest.

Leaving

But going down took only half the time and required less effort.

This is the first time I hike to a bold hill where only grasses and rocks can be seen up there.

The trip was quite fun and eye opening.

And after all the sweat, what could be bet­ter than a bowl of icy-cold cendol?

@ms white
Advice ar… not much lar coz I’ve been there only once… but try not to go there if it rains the day before… because the land will become slip­pery and it’s very dangerous…

@Rick
You are wel­come… Gunung Datuk looks inter­est­ing! Will try that if I have the chance…
