The Conquest of Broga Hill

Broga hill is located in Semenyih Selangor.

"Broga is unique in that it sits right on the border of both the states of Negri Sembilan and Selangor.Broga takes its name from the River Broga which runs through the area. The name Broga is believed to be derived from Buragas, a mythical beast that lives in the forest.The majority of those residing in Broga town are the Chinese. There is also a significant Orang Asli population whose village is located just outside Broga." - excerpts from Wikipedia.

well, get all the info you wnat ont he webs plus some gorgeous photos scattered all over the images webs. Now. Our trip.

Me and Adam begun our journey at 5.00am. The official convoy met up at Sunway toll heading towards Puchong at 5.30am. It was Sat, Feb 26th.2011.

We officially reached the foot of Broga Hill at around 6.45am. Well, i really forgot about the timing. We immediately started hiking after parking the car sesuka hati and paid RM2.00 per entrance. Keep the ticket as upon exiting the "park" some ah-so will peep into your car trying to find the ticket!!! aiyaa..

I had only a bun and Nescafe for breakfast.Big mistake. If it's not for Adam, i would have quuitted and happily waiting for them at the spot where we began. It was....a...very, very, very looooooooooong journey for me. I was gasping for air and holind on for dear life...that's ta bit too much isn't it..heheh..well, it was tiring due to my lack of stamina..

The hike took about 30-45mins and there will be people who walk (or crawl) very2 slowly, people who's taking a break in midlle of the trail and people who loves to see other people breathing heavily while the mouth is wide open..

The climb to the 1st lookout point.

On route to 2nd peak

Necessary chick. Unnecessary Grafitti.

The peak, is another story. The hill boasts of few lookout points and for me, there are 3 peaks to conquer (err..sound like Mt Everest, anyone?)..The toughest one will be the peak, the last Broga Hill peak and the beginning of the trail to Mt Tok Wan. We need to steer the rope and climb some slippery huge blocks of stones.

Sliding points..for the darevedils.

But..above all, the view is superb. Though me miss the sunrise it was suprising to see small kids climbing the hill on their 2nd, 3rd, 4th times! malu seyy..

so, my pointers are:

1. Pack light. Bring cikedis or roti or energy bar ONLY for that matter. Something to eat and replenishing energy while enjoying the view.

2. Drinks - bring your own OR buy from he stalls at the foot of the hill. Air kelapa, 100+, whatever nots. 2 bad they don;t have Nescafe.

3. Stamina:
45 mins BEFORE you begin, have at least 3 bananas - it contains potassium, a great source of energy. This tip is from a Marathon runner. hmmmpp...

4. wear comfortable shoes and attire. I lost my dear Mr Adi..cannot selamatkan already sebab i lost the other tapak..somewhere in Broga hill..sigh..

Hence, it's a trip that can be enjoyed by everyone. Take it slow. or Climb fast. Your choice.

But if you intends to catch the sunrise, you know what you have to do.
