Visit To Broga Hill

Image
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 …

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

Image
Spending almost every day at Bukit Lagong Recreational Forest is a weekend option this weekend. The program organized by Lafuma Malaysia Adventure Group (LMAG) is accompanied by a number of participants who are interested in nature reactions. Recreational forest located in Selayang, Selangor area may still be alien in the Klang Valley society. Just a few meters from the Gombak Police Station Headquarters is on the backdrop of this jungle forest.
Starting from the Lafuma boutique in Bangsar, our 7-way recreational vehicle shop in Jalan Telawi climbs the MPV to the jungle. Early morning rainstorm began to diminish the number of entries in the last minute. Our fate is quite good, in Selayang not only does not rain but the sun begins to shine.

Our MPV is down the road for this jungle past the settlement of the Orang Asli to the end of the paved road. As soon as it comes down from the vehicle, we straighten the veins and begin to warm up after the ice-breaking session.

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.
