A stunning blend of flora and fauna among spectacular, untouched forests within the cooling fog of Fraser’s Hill!
Escape the heat and hustle and bustle of city life as you ascend 1,500 metres above sea-level to the wondrous Fraser’s Hill. Home to one of Malaysia's few pristine forests with a high level of biodiversity, Fraser's Hill derives its name from Louis James Fraser, a Scottish pioneer. Fraser formed an expedition to the upper ridges of the hill to prospect for gold or other valuable metals and what he found was an ancient rainforest; with moss-draped trees and prehistoric-looking ferns, kept constantly moist by the dense fog.
Fraser’s Hill boasts a unique architectural style, built to incorporate Tudor elements from England. These structures reflect on Fraser’s Hill colonial past and its British inhabitants before the independence of Malaysia. Famed buildings include the gorgeous Fraser’s Clocktower and the expansive Allen’s Water, a former reservoir which has been repurposed for recreational boating and fishing.
The rainforest on Fraser’s Hill is well known for its impressive variety of endemic birds. Birdwatching aficionados are in for a treat as the hill experiences a mass flocking of over 270 species of local avians. There is even a special event called the annual International Bird Race, where participants from around the world team up and compete to see and record the highest number of species of birds living in the dense forests of this exquisite hill.
