Today I decided to to join my brother and his family to an expedition to climb Broga Hill
. I have an intention to climb this hill since 2010 but somehow I never really make a plan to do it. This is definitely one of the experience worth having. Somehow this reminds me on my expedition climbing Mount Ledang
back in my school days.
This place was very popular among the youngster. The hill wasn’t that high but it was a bit steep
. I totally did not expect that!
If you are forty and above and wanted to climb the hill, these are 10 tips that you can do before going there.
#1. Prepare yourself physically. Make sure you are physically fit because it is definitely challenging and not for someone with bad knee.
#2. Prepare yourself mentally. This is definitely a trip that can challenge your mental.
#3. Go before the sunrise. It is definitely worth while to start the trip early in the morning .
#4. Plan to have your Suboh Prayer at the top. That means, take ablution before going up there or bring lots of water and bring your clean mat.
#5. Drink healthy drink before starting your journey. I am one who can’t eat any solid food early in the morning. So I take my morning Herbalife shake before going out the door. It definitely help maintain my energy.
#6. Bring water. Don’t left your home without it. Staying hydrated through out the journey is very important.
#7. Don’t be afraid to take a rest in between. Listen to your body and never push beyond what you are capable of. I definitely stop for 5 minutes at least twice before reaching the top.
#8. Bring your own torch light because it was dark and the walking trail is very challenging.
#9. When climbing never look back if you are afraid of heights. Focus to trail in front of you and take one step at the time.
#10. Last but not least have fun and take tons of photos.

is definitely helpful when climbing with a baby. My baby was carried at the back during the trip up and the trip down.
And one more thing, wear comfortable shoes. It can get a bit slippery on the way down. Without proper support you might fall down.
