Yaaay, I managed to conquer Broga Hill in Semenyih. This was many, many, many ages ago. No. Kidding! It was 2 weeks ago. :P Broga Hill in case you don't already know is a hill famous for it's beautiful sunrise. People usually started to hike up the hill very in early in the morning (as early as 5 am .. sometimes earlier) to secure the best spot at the top to enjoy the sunrise.
Thing is, there isn't much space at the top of the hill, so if you're a late hiker then you have to watch the sunrise on your feet (standing) instead of on your butt (sitting). Hehe. This is due to the limited sitting spot at the top of the hill. You see, that's why people hike up very, very early in the morning just so they can secure the few sweet spot to sit and enjoy the sunrise comfortably. :D
Too bad for me, when I went up Broga Hill last weekend it was drizzling aaaaall morning! Aaand you bet, there was nooo sunshine! But I didn't regret being up there. It was cool hiking up a hill in the dark. Yerp, first time ever hiking up a hill with just a torch light. I started to climb at 6 am and arrived at the very top almost an hour later still surrounded by darkness. Even then there were already at least 6 or 7 groups of people already at the top! Told ya, this is a very famous hill.
I think my sisters and I stayed up there until 8 or 9 am before we decided to head back down. No sun shine means no fun. Now, going down is much more challenging than going up because one has to go down quite a steep slope. Make one wrong move then you could stumble down the slope and hit some rocks scattered around.
We all managed to descend with no drama. Not much people climbed up that day due to the rain but according to my sister, on good weekend, there will be one loooong queue to go up. The top of the hill be sooo crowded with people. Betcha, I'll be here again to catch that sunrise from the top of the hill.
Enjoy some not-so-amazing photos.
