|My friend was thinking about the future?|
Finally, I was at the top of Broga Hill, Semenyih after my first plan on November 2010. If you had read in my earlier entry (My Weekend Plan) , it had to be cancelled due to heavy rains and causing us all feel a little disappointed. But today it was paid off!
We start climbing the beautiful hill at 5.45AM and arrived at the top at 6.45AM. It took an hour to arrive as there are so many people also taking the chance to climb on that day. Sometime we had to stop and give way for the people that are going down. By the way, bring your torchlight together or you can buy from Aunty that already prepare with few choices for you to buy. The price range from RM5 to RM60.

Broga Hill is not that tough to hike and the hike is short too... However, never under estimate the mother nature. You still need a good stamina to take care of your knees and legs and also your body strength. Before you go for any hiking activity please make sure to do some stretching. It is advisable to get used with vigorous activities like sports and gym. My three times a week routine in gym really help me.
The person that suppose to bring DSLR camera cannot join the climb due to family matters and at the same time time, unfortunately my small Olympus Digital Camera suddenly cannot function at all! So, just enjoy some low quality pictures captured from my iPhone.

Going up is quite easy as your energy and stamina still at the maximum limit. The real challenge here is when you going down. You need to focus on the correct steps with strong knees. Otherwise you will slide down at certain few areas that relatively high and steep down. While stepping down, your knees sometime will start shaking or vibrating. If you feel so, please stop moving and take your rest.
The items that you should bring:
1. A torchlight. Big is better but small one should be fine
2. Shoes which have good grips for hiking. Sneakers can be used but not recommended, though I saw few people wore Crocs / Sandals. Hmmm....
3. Fine material of T-shirt (such as football jerseys or Nike’s Dri-Fit) is recommended as those materials would allow sweat to evaporate faster than normal cotton shirts so that you wont feel heavy.
4. Small towel for the sweaty hike..An extra shirt for a change when you heading back home..
5. If you are not a heavy drinker or don’t really sweat a lot, 1-litre of water is sufficient enough. Bear in mind they have no toilet up on the peak!
6. A windbreaker or jacket is optional as sometimes the weather can be quite windy up on the hill.
That's all for sharing :)
