Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

A pretty easy climb. Depending on your level of fitness, one can reach the peak in 15-20 minutes, but most would just go for a leisurely climb up that takes about 40-60 mins. Would be best to start hiking at about 5.45-6am to reach the peak for sunrise. Path can be slippery if it rained the day before so be sure to get shoes with good grips. Some people also find hiking sticks to be helpful but most don't need them at all. The scenery is good on most days. If you prefer a quieter environment to enjoy the scenery, avoid hiking on a weekend. 4 peaks in total, the 4th one being the tallest. All the peaks are in close proximity to each other but the level of difficulty is the highest for the 4th one as you would have to literally climb a huge boulder with the help of a rope to reach the top. Go slow when coming down the hill as it can get very steep at the beginning of the descent. Bring mosquito repellents if you are prone to taking lots of rest stops along the way.

“Good for beginner”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Good place to exercise in the morning and see sunrise. For muslim, make sure pray Subuh first before climb. If you think its too late be up there before sunrise if pray first, then better dont climb at all. Many hiker along the trail as well as on top, human traffic jam like in LRT or pasar malam. Dont drink too much because you will hard to find covered place to pee.

Please wear shoes although you had climb up there dozen times. Safety first

“Good for morning exercise”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

This hill is good for morning exercise and good for hiking beginners.
Broga Hill is located in Semenyih in the state of Selangor, not in Seremban.

It's easy tracks at the starting point and as you hike up the slope is getting steeper.

Whole journey will take you 30 minutes only for a health and fit adult but if you enjoy the scenery there and stop while you hike maybe you will need as long as 2 hours to get up. It is totally dependent on how you want it to be.

The view there is nice, particularly in the morning. Evening is good also but please don't go in afternoon unless you want to get yourself burnt.

If you feel the journey up to the peak of Broga is not enough, you can still continue to Gunung Tok Wan. The track to Tok Wan start at the peak of Broga.
