Details

The word Broga is believed to originate from ‘Buragas’, an ancient mythical creature that once dwelt in the forest. Nowadays, Bukit Broga is a wonderful destination for people who enjoy outdoor activities.

With an easy to moderate hiking trail, people of all ages often come in droves early in the morning to climb the scenic path to the top of Bukit Broga with an elevation of 400m above sea level, while some continue on to Gunung Tok Wan and Puncak 18.

Although the hill is relatively low, the view from the top still offers one of the best sights around.

Broga Hill Hiking

There are three ‘peaks’ on Bukit Broga. Trails over here are clearly marked making it very easy to self-navigate to a magnificent view of the green valley below.

It is important to plan your hike beforehand, as good weather helps avoid slippery climbs that could be extra challenging.

Depending on fitness levels, it takes about 30 minutes to an hour to reach the top of Broga Hill. The relatively easy hike means that slippers may be worn but, shoes are encouraged as a precaution in case weather conditions turn awry.

Gunung Tok Wan and Puncak 18

The third peak on Bukit Broga is the beginning of an extended trail to the mountain top of Gunung Tok Wan, which sits at an elevation of 675m and is about 4km or ~1.5 hours’ hike from Bukit Broga.

Further still is another trail to Puncak 18 at an elevation of 809m and about 1.2km or ~45 minutes’ hike from Gunung Tok Wan.

There are no panoramic views of the valley down below from Gunung Tok Wan and Puncak 18, as both trails are surrounded by mountainous forest, offering completely different surroundings from those at Bukit Broga.

Those who wish to set up camp for the night over here can expect to be greeted by a misty morning. On the way down, stop by a stall and quench your thirst with fresh and cold coconut drinks.

Nearby

Several eco and agro tourism attractions are located in Broga town and nearby Semenyih, including farms, orchards, nurseries and fisheries.

Also worth visiting is the nearby Sak Dato Temple, a Taoist place of worship located on a hillside. Besides the picturesque views of the surrounding valley from the temple grounds, Sak Dato Temple is also known for its entry in the Malaysia Book of Records for having the tallest statue of Sun Wukong, or the Monkey King, in the country.
