Fraser's Hill nestles quietly at 1,524 meters above sea level, slightly to the north of the Genting Highlands and also in Pahang. The beauty of Fraser's Hill is based primarily on its cool mountain air, its abundance of luxuriant vegetation, and its peace and tranquility--all of which have made it a favored destination for birdwatchers. While there are many other attractions to be found here, they are all pleasantly complementary to Fraser Hill's tranquil charms. There are jungle trails, waterfalls, and flower nurseries, a very pleasant 9-hole golf course, and a riding stable. Other facilities include a children's playground and a roller skating rink.

For accommodation, Fraser's Hill has a range of hotels, chalets and colonial bungalows to suit one's preferences and budget. The resort is about an hour and a half away from Kuala Lumpur. The road to the hill resort winds for about 35 km after the Gap.

FRASER'S HILL

Rising 1,500 meters above sea-level on the Titiwangsa mountain range of Peninsular Malaysia is Fraser's Hill. Named after a solitary Scottish pioneer, James Fraser, who set up a tin-ore trading post in the 1890s, it actually consists of seven hills. Fraser's Hill is truly an idyllic place for one to rest and to escape from not only the heat and humidity but also the hustle and bustle of city life. It is perhaps the prettiest of the Malaysian Hill resorts.

To get to Fraser's Hill from the Gap, one must go up a narrow, winding, one-way road for 8 km. Traffic up and down is controlled by a gate system with uphill traffic limited to odd hours, and downhill traffic to even hours.
 
There are hotels, resorts and chalets available on the hill. Tudor cottages sit among brilliantly coloured gardens shaded by lofty pine trees.
 
Fraser's Hill is popular with the locals and foreign tourists for its greenery, forest walks, fresh air and exotic flower gardens, not to mention the golfing facilities. It has many attractions within and around the area. There is a nature education centre where visitors can learn about the flora and fauna of the area. Bird watching is a very popular pastime and Fraser's Hill is the venue of the annual Bird Race which attracts many foreign omithologists

 

One of the delights of a visit to Fraser's Hill is to be able to explore the splendors of nature with a trek through the many well-marked nature trails or tracks. However, one has to be well-prepared in order to fully enjoy the experience. A pair of good trekking shoes or a strong walking shoes, a light waterproof jacket and a pair of binoculars for bird and wildlife watching will do for a start. And of course it helps to bring along a bird guide and a bottle of drinking water.

MAXWELL TRAIL
 

Finding the entrance to the trail
From the Centre, go past the mosque on the left and turn right on to the main road. At the roundabout, turn right and follow the road until it forks at a white building. Take the left fork and continue along this road, passing the entrance to Bishop’s Trail. At the next junction, turn left and then proceed for another 100m. The entrance to Maxwell Trail is clearly sign-posted on your left. This is also the exit of Bishop’s Trail.

Finding your way back to FHNEC
The route terminates by the Hindu school near Corona Nursery. Turn right up the hill and continue along this road, taking the left turn at the next junction. This road will bring you back to the town center. To return to FHNEC, walk through the town and continue along the road up the hill. The Centre is on your right hand side.

Difficulty
Narrow paths, which are angled towards the forest floor, can be dangerous – particularly following heavy rain. The walk takes approximately 90 minutes and there are many steep slopes to overcome. Leeches are abundant and so appropriate clothing and protective footwear should be worn.

 


 

BISHOP'S TRAIL
 

Finding the entrance to the trail
From FHNEC, walk past the mosque on your left and turn right along the main road. Follow the road until you reach a roundabout where you should turn right. Continue up the hill until you come to a white building, where the road forks off in two directions. Take the road on the left, and approximately 50m ahead, the entrance to Bishop’s Trail is clearly marked.

Finding your way back to FHNEC
This route terminates at Muar Cottage. Follow the road to the right until you reach a fork in the road. Here you have two options: Turn right and follow the road, which will bring you back to the trail entrance, or enter the Hemmant Trail, which is clearly sign-posted at the junction. This offers a more scenic walk back to the Centre.

Difficulty
The majority of paths are narrow, while inclines and declines are frequent and often very steep. The paths can be slippery in places, particularly when wet. Leeches are abundant and so appropriate clothing and protective footwear should be worn.

 


 

ROMPIN TRAIL
 

Finding the entrance to the trail
From FHNEC, walk past the mosque on the left and turn right onto the main road. Turn left at the roundabout and then right at the junction. Follow this road to Rompin House. The road then turns to the left and on the right hand side of this bend is an opening into the forest. This is the entrance to the trail.

Finding your way back to FHNEC
When you have reached the end of the trail, rejoin the main road and turn right down the hill towards the buildings. Turn right at the mosque and follow the path around the back until you find some ascending steps. This trail will take you back to a roundabout, where you should go straight ahead to arrive back at the Centre.

Difficulty
A 10-minute walk down the concrete steps, which may become slippery when wet. The trail which returns you to the Centre is a 15-minute uphill walk which is quite steep in some places.

 


 

MAGER TRAIL
 

Finding the entrance to the trail
From FHNEC, turn left and follow the footpath to the main road. Turn right and continue until you reach a roundabout. Take the road to the left and approximately 20m ahead, the road forks into three. Take the middle road, passing a car park on your right. Follow the road for another 30m, then ascend the concrete steps on the left. The trail is clearly marked to the left of the steps.

Finding your way back to the FHNEC
The trail leads to a dead end and cannot be connected to Abu Suradi Trail. Therefore, to return to the Centre, you must backtrack along the same route.

Difficulty
A 15-minute trail along mainly wide paths, with only a few gentle inclines and declines. Appropriate clothing and sturdy footwear should be worn, as leeches are present along the walk.

 


 

ABU SURADI TRAIL
 

Finding the entrance to the trail
From the FHNEC, take the footpath on the left and follow it down to the road. The trail begins at the opening to the forest on the opposite side of the road.

Finding your way back to FHNEC
The route terminates at Maybank Lodge. To return to the Centre, turn right and follow the road past the lake. When the road forks into three, you should take the road on the right, which leads to a roundabout. Turn right here and the Centre is a further 50m along the road on your left.

Difficulty
A 15-minute trail along mainly wide paths with few obstacles. The beginning of the trail is quite steep and the walk is mostly uphill. Appropriate clothing and sturdy footwear should be worn as leeches may be encountered along the trail.

 


 

HEMMANT TRAIL
 

Finding the entrance to the trail
Walk around the side of the NEC along the left hand side of the white fence. Go down the steps to the Enviro Web. Turn left and you will see an opening in the forest to the right, where the trail begins.

Finding your way back to FHNEC
The trail ends opposite Victory Bungalow. To return to the NEC turn left at the roundabout, and follow the road for 10 minutes until you reach another roundabout. Turn left and the NEC is on the left.

Difficulty
Mainly wide paths with minor obstacles. Occasionally the path becomes narrow and steep, and may be slippery after a rainfall.

 


 

KINDERSLEY TRAIL
 

Finding the entrance to the trail
From FHNEC, walk past the food court on the left, turn left on the main road at the roundabout at the town centre, turn left, and follow this road uphill and pass the hotel until you reach the junction. Here, turn right and follow the road around the corner where the trail is clearly sign-posted on the right.

Finding your way back to FHNEC
The quickest way back to the Centre is to backtrack along the same route, but if you prefer, you can turn left out of Kindersley Trail, then turn right at the next junction. When the road forks, turn right past the Singapore House. Turn right at the next two junctions and this will lead you back to the town centre.

Difficulty
A 10-minute uphill walk, which is very steep in places and may be dangerous after a rainfall.

 


 

PINE TREE TRAIL
 

Finding the entrance to the trail
The trail begins near the Admiralty and High Pines bungalows. Visitors embarking on the trail will be greeted with a forest of an older millennium. Early settlers named the trail after discovering pine trees growing along the trail. The trail is also home to a great variety of plants and animals, including a myriad of insect life.

Finding your way back to FHNEC
Now that you have reached the top of the pine tree trail, how do you return home? Easy, just follow the trail backwards. Take your time. Remember, slowly but surely. On the way back, you might encounter things you have not noticed before.

Difficulty
Pine Tree Trail is reckoned to be one of the most physically challenging trails in Fraser’s Hill. The trail is 6km long and it takes four hours at a moderate pace to reach its peak, Pine Tree Hill. Visitors are guided all the way along the trail by wooden signposts. Resting stations are located at strategic points so visitors can take a short rest.

FRASER’S Hill is fast becoming known as a bird-watching haven. 

This hill station in the Main Range on the Selangor-Pahang border is a bird watcher’s paradise, as it is said to have more than 200 species of local and migratory birds. 

 

Looking up to the sky- spotting the birds never seemed more exciting to a group of students and their teacher at the the International Bird Race held in Fraser's Hill on June 11 and 12 recently.
Recently, more than 150 bird watchers came to the hill resort to take part in the 17th International Bird Race, which ran for two days from June 11. 

The event was jointly organised by the Pahang government’s tourism authority, Fraser’s Hill Development Corporation, Malaysian Nature Society and World Wildlife Fund for Nature. 

The race required participants to sight, identify and record the birds. 

According to Pahang Arts, Culture, Heritage, Tourism and Women’s Affairs committee chairman Datuk Maznah Mazlan, participants in the race did not need to be experts on birds. 

“They just need an explanatory book on birds, a pair of binoculars and a torchlight and are ready to trek in the jungle to spot the birds,” said Maznah. 

She said that Fraser’s Hill was chosen as it was known to have migratory and endangered species of birds. 

The endangered species include the wreathed hornbill and rhinocerous hornbill. 

Maznah said that migratory birds came from as far as northern Japan and Siberia and the hill resort was regarded as a stopover station, where they stayed for a few months before migrating southwards towards Australia and New Zealand. 

“The birds will return here in March and April when it gets cold in the southern hemisphere,” she added. 

Sultanah of Pahang Sultanah Kalsom presented the prizes during the closing ceremony. 

The Prinias team comprising Wong Soon Ying, Ng Chee Cheong and Wong Ming Sun from Selangor emerged as champions in the advanced category by coming up with a list of 87 birds. 

The Cutia team made up of Mohamad Bakar, Bala Supramaniam and Mohammad Zamri from Fraser’s Hill emerged second, while the One More Battle-Silver Eared Mesia team comprising Foo Yat Chin, Mohd Rafi Kudus and Angela Mary took third place. 

In the novice category, Fauna UTM came in first, followed by Team SMO and The Juveniles. 

In the student category, SM Ahmad of Pekan was first while SMK Datuk Mahmood Mat and SMK Pekan emerged second and third respectively.
