HILLS RESORTS & HILL STATIONS OF MALAYSIA


MALAYSIA’S HILL RESORTS


Malaysia's heartland is gifted by the beauty of its natural landscape and the spectacular topographical formations. From the scenic coastline to the mangrove swamps and deeper inland into the sprawling rainforests right up its rugged mountains, the terrain changes systematically offering richness in resources and biological diversity. The great diversity of Malaysia's attractions includes several hill resorts that are located on the main mountain range of the Peninsular and in Sabah and Sarawak on the island of Borneo. Each of them possess their own unique charms. Mount Kinabalu, with its looming granite massifs, represents the ultimate challenge, while Fraser's Hill and Cameron Highlands with numerous jungle trails, English cottages and gardens will appeal to those inclined towards gentler pursuits.

Whatever one's choice, the jungle clad hills with an average temperature of 16-21 degrees Celsius offer a cool, refreshing getaway from the cities. Here ancient pine trees fringe hauntingly beautiful peaks enshrouded in swirls of mist; delicate ferns heavy with crystals of dew glisten like filigree silver; and temperate flowers in striking shades of colors invite gasps of admiration. Whether you are going for a day excursion or an extended stay, you will discover a holiday in Malaysia's hill resorts to be an invigorating and pleasantly soothing experience.
