Frasers' Hill Info
After a one and a half hours drive north-east of Kl you will reach Frasers' Hill. Enroute we will stop by the township of Kuala Kubu Baru(KKB) for refreshments and then continue our journey.
From the GAP the narrow road leads up 9km to the top.(drivers note that the one-way system that use to operate by time is now defunct). Coming down will be on the new road which is near our resort.

Frasers' is located on the Main Range at a height of 4000ft(1500m). A much cooler climate for walking about, breathing fresh air and chilling out. If we are lucky you can spot more than 250 species of birds, Dusky-leaf monkeys, Siamang(Largest Black gibbon in Malaysia), squirrels and a wild boar or two (or see their diggings of earth in the ground). Plants are plentiful with bright flowers blooming.
For food outlets there is the FOOD Court (local food) near the playground and a few restaurants near Puncak Inn. The more pricey places to eat of course is the Smokehouse. There are a couple of Sundry shops.
Other activities availble-boating on Alans' water, Horse-riding,archery,Golf. This will be on your own during Free and easy.
