Set in a lush tropical forest, Broga Hill is at the edge of the Titiwangsa Range. It is also known by the locals as ‘Bukit Lalang’ as this grass grows in abundance on the hill top lending it a mystical setting. The climb up the first peak can be daunting for first timers but there are ropes that are tied to trees that help you along. The view at the top is definitely well worth the climb. The once lush tropical forest is now covered with “resam” or “lalang” cogon grass giving the hill an almost picture book quality. It is a good treat…a reward for the climb.
Broga Hill is frequented by casual hikers. It is approximately 400m in altitude and is easily climbed by most people. The hilltop is unique as it is rather devoid of trees, which is an uncommon sight amongst tropical rainforest. Remnants of burnt out tree trunks indicate that the area may have been ravaged by a forest fire and the trees did not regrow. It offers a good view of the surrounding area and has become a popular picnic and photography spot.
