Broga Hill, Selangor – A Hill Covered with Lalang Grass

Broga Hill, Selangor is a small hill that is about 400 metres high. The climb to the top of the hill is relatively easy, taking between 30 minutes to an hour. However, it is steep and challenging, enough to get the heart pumping hard. Despite the short height, the view from the top of the hill is a great one.  Visitors get an unblocked panoramic view of the landscape of the lush valleys of rainforest and nearby towns.
