Visit To Broga Hill

Nowadays, Broga Hill becomes one of the popular recreational outdoor trails for the Klang Valley community. The hill was target for climbers from age 4 to 60 years old and there are about 100 climbers per day on every weekend. LMAG brought 18 energetic people to have an experience here on 27 June 2009.

A 2.3KM ascending route, starting from oil palm estate follow by tertiary forest and lastly grass route, ‘lalang’ area with a few boulders.

The best part here is when we trekked along hill range with lalang sitting side by side along the trail. There are 5 peaks within the hill with beautiful nature panoramas. When I was here, its remind me about my past month climb with my fellow friends to Mt. Sumbing at Central Java. The route scene between both places look mimic but with differences in distance, altitude and temperature only.

Although the trail was short but it got most of us sweating non-stop. One has to be here early to avoid the heat from the barren land. We started a bit late where the weather are mild but by that time we notice some trekkers are coming down from the hill already. However, with less trekker, it makes us easy for photo shooting session.

We descended using a different route to escape the hot sun where more vegetation was seen along the way. This route goes through rubber estate as well until our car park area. Through the jungle on the way down, we found ripe durians along the trails. It is a wild durian fresh from the durian trees. Some local people call it Durian Orang Asli even though there is no Orang Asli settlement here. The durian was very small, less smell and less taste.

With this guided trip, we hope every participant can regularly organized a visit to this place with friends to trek and enjoy the panoramic view of Semenyih. Let us set full passion in outdoor and get full of awesome experience.

Rekreasi Hujung Minggu di Hutan Lipur Bukit Lagong (14/03/09)


Meluangkan masa hampir seharian di Hutan Lipur Bukit Lagong menjadi pilihan rekreasi hujung minggu kali ini. Program anjuran Lafuma Malaysia Adventure Group (LMAG) disertai sebilangan peserta yang minat pada reakreasi alam. Hutan lipur yang berada di daerah Selayang, Selangor ini mungkin masih asing dikalangan masysarakat Lembah Klang. Cuma beberapa meter dari Ibupejabat Polis Daerah Gombak terpampang papan tanda hutan lipur ini.
Bermula dari butik Lafuma di Bangsar, kedai sukan rekreasi di Jalan Telawi kami seramai 7 orang menaiki MPV ke hutan lipur. Cuaca pagi yang mulanya hujan renyai-renyai menyusutkan bilangan penyertaan disaat-saat akhir. Nasib kami agak baik, di Selayang bukan sahaja tidak hujan malah mentari mula menyinar garang.

MPV kami menyusuri jalan hutan lipur ini melepasi penempatan Orang Asli hingga akhir jalan berturap. Sebaik sahaja turun dari kenderaan, kami meluruskan urat-urat serta mula memanaskan badan selepas sessi ice-breaking.

Awal perjalanan kami tidak sunyi, bunyi unggas-unggas selain deruan jeram yang berhampiran mengamit suasana. Hutan lipur ini yang menjadi destinasi peminat burung atau lebih dikenali bird-watcher terdiri dari beberapa rintis. Kami memilih rintis penarik yang menghala ke atas salah satu bukit di sini.

Perjalanan kami makin lama makin jauh ke tengah rimba. Sedikit-demi sedikit kami mendaki. Peluh mulai keluar dan bahang panas mula terasa. Beberapa sarang burung jelas kelihatan di atas pokok yang sayup tingginya. Tanpa peralatan binokular kami dapat perhatikan sarang-sarang yang dibuat diatas kanopi rimba. Suatu pemandangan yang sukar diperolehi bagi jungle trekker.

Langkah demi langkah kami aturkan, adakalanya melintasi jeram dan ada pula meniti tebing bergaung. Ada flora yang menjadi tarikan diperjalanan kami seperti cendawan butang sebesar 15 inci diameter. Pokok kayu serai wangi yang baunya tidak asing dikalangan pengguna minyak-minyak tradisional.

Fauna seperti serangga dan unggas tak terlepas dari perhatian kami. Sekumpulan burung layang-layang yang terbang umpama pesta cukup menarik minat kami. Lama kami memerhatikan suasana ini sebelum beredar meneruskan perjalanan.

Jam 10:30 pagi kami sudah berada di kawasan puncak. 20 meter menghampiri puncak dipenuhi belukar dan semak-samun.Di destinasi terakhir kami bergambar berkumpulan sebagai kenangan. Kami berehat seketika sebelum memulakan perjalanan turun dilaluan yang sama.

Mentari menyinar semakin terik, rentis yang banyak terdedah dengan panahan matahari ini menjadi cabaran buat kami. Rentis yang dianggarkan sejauh 5 KM dirasa semakin jauh semasa pulang berbanding perjalanan pergi.

Akhirnya kami selamat kembali ke MPV kami jam 12:30. Sebelum pulang kami singgah sebentar di Air Terjun Bukit Lagong. Beberapa pengunjung memeriahkan suasana disini. Melihat gelagat dan telatah mereka sudah cukup menyejukkan badan kami lebih-lebih lagi tiada persalinan yang dibawa untuk mandi-manda. Jam 1:30 kami kembali ke Bangsar dan bersurai.

About Mount Trusmadi
Trusmadi Mount, measuring at 2,462m or 8,669ft, is the Malaysia second highest mountain after Gunung Kinabalu (4,101m or 13,433ft) but is said to offer a much more challenging climb. Situated between the districts of Tambunan to the north and Keningau to the south (in the state of Sabah in Borneo).

Unlike Mount Kinabalu which is visited by thousands of people every year, Mount Trusmadi – situated some 70km southeast of Kota Kinabalu – is not a tourist mountain and is rarely visited. Until recently, there are only one or two expeditions climb on this mountain each year.
The slopes of the mountain, which are covered with rich vegetation houses many species of birds, animals and plants, making it a trekker's haven.

The summit (of Mount Trusmadi) is reputed to have the best dawn view of Mount Kinabalu, which lies over 40km to the north. A unique pitcher plant, Nepenthes x trusmadiensis (a natural hybrid between Nepenthes lowii and Nepenthes edwardsiana) is found here and nowhere else.

Bukit Tabur Alert Notice

Most of us from the hiking and trekking communities are aware of whereabout of Bukit Tabur and have done some hikes there in the past. However there are still some of us who may not be aware of the danger or risk of climbing Bukit Tabur or I would say that we take it lightly on the safety aspect of the climb. There has been several cases and some involved fatalities as well during the past years where hikers fell from the cliff during their climb. The risk is not only apply to beginner but experience and hikers who are frequent the place as well.

We at Lafuma Bangsar, would wished to alert all our customers, friends and fellow hikers to be more alert when you climb at Bukit Tabur. Make sure you are well prepared for the hike and also make do your friends or partners that are coming along with you aware of the risk, safety and precaution aspect of the climb. Here are some tips that we would like to share with you during your trip there.

1) Never go alone for this hike. Bring along some experience hiker or friends with you. If you need to go alone, never forget your handphone as it will be a handy gadget to have in case of emergency.
2) Avoid trekking to this place at night as well as rainy season.
3) Start your journey early in the morning as the place will heat up fast after the sunrise due to the quartz terrain. Bring along more water as you may get dehydrated fast if you are long up there.
4) Becareful on certain danger spot/zone where you need to do a bit of rock scrambling up or down. Use the safety rope if there is any.
5) Get a proper shoes with good traction and grip and never go with your normal sandals/slippers.
6) If you are bringing your friends there, please do keep the group small or in a manageable size so that you can take care of them accordingly.
