Broga Hill @Semenyih
Mountain climbing is always one of my favorite activities because I like the feeling of conquering the mountain. I have always been mountain climbing when I was staying in Johor but most of the mountains and hills top have my footprints on it. However after staying in KL for almost 9 years, I have never been to any of the hills and mountains. One of the reason is my job but the primary reason is I am lack of adventurous friends at KL. Most of them more enjoying something that does not sweat. Gladly after at the near end of my KL stay, I have a bunch of colleagues that willing to sweat themselves just because one of my colleague was going to conquer the Mount Kinabalu. So this is her warm up or practice. Hahaha...
So here, our journey began from waking up at 4.00am to get myself ready to assemble at 5.00am at Bandar Tasik Selatan. 8 peoples in two cars travelling almost 1 hours 30 minutes using SILK highway down south of where we are. When we reach there, the sky is started to get brighter but we still torchlight ready to lit us our road up the hill. There are parking space available @RM3.00 per entry. But I parked somewhere does not need to pay.
|You can see some great view when you were climbing a long the way to the top.|
|Most of them will stop or giving up from reaching the next top so they will take pictures, catching their breath or enjoying the view from where they are.|
|Just 5 minutes away to reach another top where you can see a greater view. Look at those greens! The air was so fresh!|
|More great views from the 2nd top!|
|A great scenery on the halfway to the top. You will see the 2 tops you passed by just now.|
|Hooray!!! You have reached 400m above sea level!!! Give yourself a good pat on your back. Well done! Phewww....Let's see the fruit of your success!|
|This is what you will get!|
|Everything seems to be small to you.|
|Clouds are same level as you are which gives you a cool breeze of air. It is really good to have such air in your lungs after you have been living in the highest pollution city for such a long time.|
People usually says climbing up a hill is harder than walking down a hill. From my experience, I am not agree with it. Walking down a hill is more dangerous than climbing up a hill. You need twice your leg strength to balance yourself. If can, do use your hand as a support and reduce your body gravity by lowering your whole body. Broga Hill is really a nice hill indeed but too many people which you find it quite irritating when you need to queue up on the hill instead of climbing. It is time for me to seek another hill/mountain to conquer! Yosh!
Freakout Level: 3/5
Will I revisit?: No, unless I have a tougher team.
