About Location

Not too far from the sweltering heat of the city, lies an ethereal land high above the sea - peaceful and calming. Morning dew settles on the fronds, reflecting rainbows of the sun like windows on soap bubbles floating on a breeze. Low, lingering clouds envelop the rolling hills sweeping in chilly air and thin frail mist in the wee hours of the morning.

About 103km from Kuala Lumpur is an area of seven hills originally named Ulu Tras just coming down the Titiwangsa Range. This range is the backbone of Peninsular Malaysia which runs from the Thai border all the way down south, ending in Negri Sembilan rarely dropping below a height of 1000m.

Places to Visit

Fraser's Hill

This is one of the least developed hill resort compared to Cameron Highlands or Genting Highlands. As such, this resort which is located at an altitude of 1,524 metres above sea level is an ideal place for one who just want to enjoy the undisturbed nature in a cool environment. Activities that you can do here include bird-watching, camping, horse-riding, jungle trekking, fishing, golfing as well as discovering the many flora and fauna that abounds in this hill.

Golfing

Malaysia's earliest highland golf course was constructed on Fraser's Hill in 1925. The 9-hole course was built on former tin mines. In the 1970s, an 18-hole course was added at Jeriau, about 3km from the main town.
 
Walking

There are several hiking trails around the hill; their entrance is usually marked by signboards. There is also an accessible waterfall. Trails range from the Hemmant Trail, a short walk, to the Pine Tree Trail, a full day's trek

Bird watching

Fraser's Hill is a notable centre for birdwatching aficionados. The hill station has over 270 species of local and migratory birds flocking here together. The annual International Bird Race is held in the second weekend of June each year, organized by the Fraser's Hill Development Corporation in collaboration with WWF-Malaysia and the Malaysian Nature Society. It sees participants throughout the world converging on the hill station in a team competition to sight, identify and record the highest number of species of birds stated in the official checklist.

Jeriau Waterfalls

5 km (30 min drive) from the town centre and then a 15-min walk. The falls are 6 meters high and fall into a shallow pool suitable for bathing. The area is equipped with restrooms and shelters for picnics.
