Broga Hill is one of the best places to hike within the Kuala Lumpur City Centre. It is only 400 metres high (1312 feet) and can easily be climbed in an hour but it is steep and challenging enough to get the heart pumping and lungs puffing.
What’s more, it is about the only hill or mountain in Peninsular Malaysia which is covered in lalang grass instead of trees so the views from the top are excellent.
The first peak can be daunting for first timers. Fortunately, there are ropes tied to the trees to help beginners along. Your effort will definitely be paid off with the view that awaits you at the top.
Other than view of sunset or sunrise that attracted most people to climb this hill, visitors will also be getting a spacious view of the plains, coated by a mixture of rainforest, oil palm plantations, villages and towns, along with distant mountains.
If you are here before sunrise, you will be experiencing an almost surreal atmosphere with the mist rising from the ground from the warmth of the sun enveloping the landscape in a carpet of white.
