Bukit Broga is one of the best places to hike within easy range of Kuala Lumpur. It is only 400 metres high (1312 feet) and can easily be climbed in an hour but it is steep and challenging enough to get the heart pumping and lungs puffing.
What’s more, it is about the only hill or mountain in Peninsular Malaysia which is covered in lalang grass instead of trees so the views from the top are excellent.
The trail is well worn and easy to follow. It gets busy, especially at weekends and at dawn when many climber like to witness the sun rise. Thousands of feet have eroded the path. Stay on the main path to avoid causing further damage to the hillside.
The trail climbs through a forested area for 15 minutes or so before emerging at the foot of a steep hill covered in grass. Here the tiring ascent begins but you will soon find yourself enjoying the fine views over the surrounding countryside.
