Bukit Jugra Info

Many ships had tried, but all of them failed to reach the beaches that support the elevation which the locals called Cockle Hill. These late19th century navigators had been travelling for weeks along the Straits of Malacca, and each time they closed in, the shores sneakily moved backwards further inland, breaking these mighty armadas to yield frustration. The English wanted no more of this nonsense. So, they constructed a lighthouse on top of Cockle Hill. And from then on, deep in the night, when everything was still and the locals were all snuggled and asleep on their woven mats, a beacon of light would part the darkness looking for ships welcoming them to the shore.

The Sultan Abdul Samad mausoleum in Jugra.
And that is how the legend goes; and it goes on to tell the story of how the hill continued to bleed for 30 long days after the erection of the Sri Jugra Lighthouse. The waters surrounding it assumed the rusty-red colour of the cockles that resided there. Ironically, not long after the incident, the cockle population started to dwindle, and then they all disappeared.

But then again, this is all folklore, romanticised tales to spice up an event. Much of the earlier history of Malaysia was passed on by the 'penglipurlara' or storytellers. They frequented little villagers to update the people on important affairs. The more colourful the story was, the greater the crowd he would gather. Thus, his tales needed to be exciting. And never mind if it blurred the line between reality and fiction. And that is just why the coastal land could be cheeky and unwelcoming, and the cockles all died away without any logical explanation. After all, isn't inexplicable tales part of the mystification surrounding all legends.

Sights around the Town Jugra.
Today, people and not ships flock to Bukit Jugra (Jugra Hill). Right from the base of the hill, they jog all the way up the winding road in their cross trainers, carrying their bottles of water. Fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, scaling the hill for the ultimate cardio experience.

Bukit Jugra is away to admire the spectacular view of the Langat River
that cleaves the lowlands, winding and curling as it meanders
sinuously to converge with the river mouth.
Not all who visit Bukit Jugra are there for the exercise though. Young girls and their boyfriends, while on their brief recess from looking into each other's eyes, throw their glance away to admire the spectacular view of the Langat River that cleaves the lowlands, winding and curling as it meanders sinuously to converge with the river mouth. Nowhere else can Selangor boast a peak from which one can be inspired by such a spectacular landscape. Its picturesque panorama stretching into the horizon, reaching mountainous divides, and transgressing beyond the Straits of Malacca, and at times almost into oblivion.

If you are planning to venture into the unbridled Bukit Jugra, be prepared to lose some centimetres off the sole off your shoes from all that walking, be blown away by the sprawling scenery, and perhaps lose a few ringgit on the purchase of water and refreshments. Expect activity, because the main attraction here is just that; and this pretty much rules out a social call to see the master, the immortal lighthouse. Within its compound, all is unmoving, somewhat idle. Everything is silent. Only, and only if you listen hard enough, you might just hear the quiet and unimposing humming the lighthouse makes as its light goes round and round in a circular motion, day and night, night and day. A lonesome edifice, solitary and isolated within its neat compound that welcomes no visitors. 

Among the key activities like, paragliding.
