the hills are alive with the sound of music! this is the closest location we have in malaysia for the movie’s sweeping aerial view opening sequence reenactment where a blady grass covered hill can be a substitute for the sprawling alpine meadow in the 1965 classic. located near the town of broga, broga hill, with 4 peaks ranging from 300m – 400m, became an instant fad for amateur hikers and photographers to spend their weekends. the serene morning view, unspoilt by other hikers was only achieved on a working day, an applied leave approved a few days prior. april 2010.
