Nestled amongst jungle-clad mountains of Pahang province, Bukit Fraser (Fraser’s Hill) is one of Malaysia’s lovely hill resorts and an ideal base to explore the surrounding forests. At higher altitudes, the cool montane forests provide relief from the tropical heat in the lowlands and host a diversity of animal and plant species which specialize in this more temperate habitat. In the sub-montane valleys below the temperature is significantly higher and these more typical rainforests are home to a wide variety of lowland flora and fauna.
