Frasers Hill

Frasers Hill is about 105 km (65 miles) north of Kuala Lumpur. On the main range between the states of Selangor and Pahang. It lies about 1,200 m (3,900 ft) on the spine of the Main Range mountains.

Fraser’s Hill is a pleasant retreat from the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur. It is a bird watcher’s delight, and there are innumerable walking trails to suit novice or experienced trekkers. Due to its altitude, the temperature is always mild. The evenings can be quite cool, so it’s a good idea to bring along a sweater or light jacket.

Trail walking and treks, bird watching, photography, botanising. On the way to Fraser’s Hill is the internationally renown white-water river, the Sungai Selangor (several operators run river running trips, in rafts or kayaks). Largely lower montane forests; towards the higher peaks tending towards upper montane forests and down the valleys into Dipterocarp forests. Bird watching is good everywhere (in June, an annual international bird race is held here). Trails are clearly signposted and the walk down to the Gap will give you a good opportunity to glimpse non-montane birds. Many birders are reporting typically lowland-birds well above its range so do not be surprise to record any, especially along the Gap road.
