Sunday 3rd July 2011. Just before noon me and family arrived at this place near the small town of Broga, at the Selangor-Negeri Sembilan state border.
A week or two earlier I've learned about the existence of this place through the Internet and a newspaper article. Since then I felt the yearn to visit.
For here starts the climb up to Bukit (hill of Broga), a climb which could also lead to Gunung (mountain) of Tok Wan.
But we just wanted to climb up the hill.
It seems to be a quite popular climbing spot for casual climbers young and old.
What's best, the path is clear and well maintained.
There's a lot of open area which is good for view.
But no so good when the sun is high as you are exposed directly to the heat.
Thank God there are some shades...
What a welcomed respite for people like us who started our climb just before noon.
Mind you we've been been told that it is good to start a climb early morning.
But it is not everyday we have time to go to Broga and since we're already here let's just proceed with the climb... despite the fact I was wearing worn out shoes while the wife was actually wearing casual office shoeware.
There. After a time the peak was in view.
Resting somewhere up to catch our breath we took time to savour the vistas.
There's actually two more peaks up the hill of Broga but it's not good to continue under the searing afternoon heat. So enough I guess. Even if I was capable of going on, got to think about the wife and baby...
