Where to Go in Malaysia For Nature Lovers: This Hidden Gem Has Cool Weather & It Isn’t Cameron Or Genting Highlands

There are many hidden gems to be discovered in Malaysia though, from natural reserves to an island with a fascinating history. One of the best family time you can have is taking time off busy schedules from work and school to go for a holiday! While it is a treat, it doesn’t have to cost a bomb or require painstaking planning for an overseas trip. It can be spontaneous, fun and relaxing as well. Here is an amazing place that you didn’t know that existed in Malaysia.

Take your sweaters out and escape the heat by heading for this picturesque hill in Taiping, Perak.

Bukit Larut, historically known as Maxwell Hill, is Malaysia’s oldest hill resort – relatively intact and not overdeveloped compared to famous spots like Genting and Cameron Highlands.

This secret gem may not have theme parks or malls, but it’s the perfect spot for anyone looking for a comfortable, peaceful getaway instead.
Nature-lovers will enjoy jungle trekking, bird-watching, swimming in Burmese pool near the foothills, or simply enjoy the breathtaking views while Netflixing.
The virgin forests of Bukit Larut are brimming with wildlife such as bats, squirrels, and gibbons that roam freely.

It’s the ideal escape for anyone looking for a nice holiday in cooler weather, as temperatures can range from 10 to 15 degrees.


When you climb to the end, you’ll come across a massive tea garden set up in 1887.
Bukit Larut’s tea plantation was eventually transferred to Cameron, because the tea leaves could not grow very well on the hill.
