Broga Hill Escapade [27th Dec 2009]

Finally, the Broga Hill wait has come to an end. It was planned as early as half a year ago, but due to numerous unforseen circumstances, the Broga Hill trip has been called off many times.

It has never been so timely, since Chee will be celebrating his last day as Bachelor. What a way to celebrate! The sunwayrians gathered at Sunway as early as 4.30am. 2 cars were heading down to Cheras Leisure Mall to meet up Mei Kheng.

The road was dark, the traffic was little as we heads towards Semenyih. We passed by Nottingham University before finally reached the place about 6am where we saw alot of cars being parked by the side.

The starting trail was at the oil palm estate. It was dark, but there were many people hiking up with torch light on. It was a beautiful sight, as though the firefly are lining up to the peak.

It's 6am when we start hiking up when it is still dark

People everywhere, a hugely popular Broga Hill

Can you spot the city beneath?

The symbolic sign of Broga

The sun was about to rise when we reach the 2nd low peak. We didn't really bother to catch the sunrise because our mind were still asleep.

What a scenic view on an early Sunday

Beautiful sky

It's me at one of the boulder at 2nd low peak
This is where I got my leg hurt as I attempted to go up boulder. I like this shot a lot and credit has to go to Sai Chuen.

What doing us?

Only for guys

The lalang just blends in well with the hill layout

Who said lalang is not pretty?

That's a lot people heading up!

Natural steps that were formed along the trail

It wasn't a tough hike. The trail are easy with natural steps being formed on the most trail. Up slope steepness is about 45 degree at most. We reached the false peak about 8.30am. It takes us barely 20 minutes from the 2nd low peak.

Can you spot the peak of Broga at the tip?

The Kinky Corp continues at Broga

There's always another higher mountain to be climb

What mountain is that?

Marching on to the peak

Waiting turns for some rock climbing time

The attached rope made it easy for climbing

The small ladder to the summit
It is definitely incomparable to Gunung Datuk

We started to descend about 10am and reached the starting point about 11am.

Wondering what she gonna do next

Continuing to march down

A very clear path indeed

Even a puppy exercises here

Two trails diverged in the middle, which one should you take?

Members for the day

Though I had only an hour sleep for the night before, the little hike is indeed an enjoyable one. We hope Chee enjoyed as much as we do and found a new meaning to his life after today=)
