Broga Hill

In 2009, my special pre-birthday celebration was fall on Sunday, 2nd August. It was kinda fun and unforgettable birthday celebration as it was held at Broga Hill, Semenyih. One of the popular jungle trekking spot of the year..

Have gone through some of the blog and got to know that in order to catch sunrise at Broga Hill must be reach the peak before 5.30am. Thus, we have decided to wake up earlier to catch the beautiful sunrise. =)

We have start our journey from PJ to Semenyih at 4.30am where the sky is still dark and everyone is still enjoying their sweet dream. It took about 45minutes in order to arrived broga town... Well, it still depends which route you're using on, please scroll down to the bottom and refer to the location map for more understanding..

Arrived Broga town at 5.15am and start hikking at 5.30am, as the sky still dark and is our first time been to broga hill, thus we have follow a group of peoples to hike, to ensure that we're safe and not getting lost.. =P

It has took about 1 hour and 15minutes to reach the 4th check point, the last check point as well, as you can see, we probably has missed the sunrise.. too bad.. =(

7am at Broga Hill.. fresh air, comfortable wind, enjoyable place..

Hold the tight rope, let it help you to climb down from 4th check point..

Lovely muffin chocolate brought by Queenie and Elvin, far away from Kepong to Semenyih, from 1st check point - 4th check point, this is lovely! Thanks for the birthday muffin cake.. Appreciate..

Happy Birthday to myself!!! =)

Check this out! The way from 2nd check point to 3rd check point, there are actually 2 route whereby both will lead you to the same destination however, as you can see, left red-arrow will be more oblique than what you thought, so I would advise you to take the right red-arrow path to the 3rd check point.

We don't feel the danger of the road while trek at 5.30am as the sky still dark, not until the way we walk back from the hill..

Bear in mind, please bring torch light if you want to hike before the sky turn bright..

The starting point for hiking is the palm oil estate which is opposite side of Rabbit farm. You may just park your car at road side or a long the palm oil estate. Just follow the trail that will leads you to the peak. Howevere, if you're not familiar, always follow the group who has experience.
