Discovered by Louis James Fraser, a Scotsman, in the 1890s, this charming town has offered city folk respite from heat and pollution for nearly a century now.
One need not walk far, to venture into untouched forests where lush carpets of moss grow on trees and the only sound is the chirruping of birds and insects. The town usually takes on an ethereal quality as clouds, more often than not, envelope it.
Fraser Hill’s natural beauty and bounty is ideal for discovering on foot through well-marked trails like the Pine Tree Trail and Kindersley Trail. You can stop by at the Nature Education Centre for route maps and guides. Nature lovers come here for bird-watching as well as for the town’s brightly-coloured flora.
If you’re lucky, you might even spot a Rafflesia, the world’s largest flower, but be warned, it smells like a corpse.
