Nanyang Wall is one of the many rock climbing spots situated around Batu Caves, it is located very close to the main road which makes it more accessible in comparison to the other walls in the Batu Caves area. Nanyang wall is strategically located near a commercial area with ample parking spaces as well as restaurants and convenient shops.
As I walking around the Botanical Gardens in Putrjaya I stumbled upon the The Moroccan Pavilion. It is designed to showcase the rich tradition of arts and architecture of Morocco, and the Moors. By the time I reached the interior of the pavilion, I was told that to enter the inner chambers I had to purchase a ticket, which I was fine with however the problem was you had to walk back to the car park which was about a kilometer away. I told myself that I’ll just come back next time to see the interior of this Moroccan pavilion.
Batu Caves is a large limestone outcrop famous for its temple which draws in thousands of Hindu devotees every year. The main attraction is its 272 steps leading up to the main temple which is situated 100 meters above the ground and inside a large cave. However what I came to know only recently is that Batu Caves is also a hot spot for a very different sort of activity. What I’m referring to is rock climbing the limestone and granite walls of the mountain. In total Batu Caves has 8 different crags and a total of 170 routes.
Broga Hill (Bukit Broga) is also known as “Bukit Lalang’ due to the abundance of the species called ‘lalang’ grass which grows on the hill. Located in Semenyih, Broga Hill stands at 400 meters high and is located roughly about 40 minutes from Kuala Lumpur. Broga Hill can be reached a short distance after the University of Nottingham, where the entrance trail starts from an oil palm estate facing a rabbit park across the road. The entrance to the car park is marked on the map below.
