Taman Negara 2009

14 – 17 Aug 09

This 3 days 2 nights trip was a new experience and completed with pride. Since it was a revisited trip, I prefer to make a special arrangement with the travel agent. We took 2 days 1 night at Taman Negara vicinity. Another night will be spent at Jerantut town for other additional arrangement.

Frankly say, it wasn’t a pleasant trip due to the messy arrangement from this tour agency.The whole story started from the moment I made booking. From prices to transport arrangement, I’d my own issue with it because it’s not consistent and keep changing.

I didn’t go with a big group this time, only three of us. We started at 7.00am and walked into the plantation area before hike to the top gradually.

Just want to give direction to first timer at Broga to take the RIGHT path when you come across this junction. It will lead you to better and safe route to the top.

After the success of my previous hiking trip, I’m planning another trip to Broga Hill by next week. As I will be leading a large group of friends to Broga, I need to get myself being prepare for it.

Here are the facts of preparation and advises on Broga Hill trip:

  • Camera – absolutely more important than your phone, to capture the beauty of nature OR madness of yourself
  • Towel – sweat like crazy during the hike before reach 1st peak
  • Extra shirt – to get change at your car when you’re about to go back
  • Water/Isotonic – to replace your body dehydration OR provide energy to your body with isotonic drink. Can be bought at nearby plantation area.
  • Torchlight – required if you planned to hike and reach before 7am.
  • Shoes – slippery surface during hiking up and down. Need a pair of shoes that having a good grip.
