A few weeks ago, when the weather of Malaysia started to get better from the haze that's been covering our sky for months, we decided to take a day trip up the hill for some cool fresh air and walk in nature. So the nearest hill to Kuala Lumpur is the Fraser's Hill, the locals called it "Bukit Fraser".
Fraser’s Hill is a highland resort destination nestled among the mountains of Pahang, located two hours away from Kuala Lumpur. Locally known as Bukit Fraser, this cooling holiday retreat is popular for its nature activities and cooling climate, being one of the last hill stations of Malaysia, an imprint by former British colonial masters.
Fraser’s Hill has its roots in the 1890s, when Scottish prospector Louis James Fraser opened up a tin mine but mysteriously vanished in 1915. In 1917, the bishop of Singapore rediscovered Fraser's Hill while on a hunt for the man, providing suggestions for the area to be developed into a hill station which was brought to fruition by authorities.
