As the mountains are high in altitude, the temperature varies from 16 °C to 24 °C hence an ideal place to go for a time of relaxation..

Apart from that, the greeneries and the mountainous landscapes that abound in the highlands make many nature lovers come back again. As for theme park on the mountain, there is Genting, the City of Entertainment which is located in Genting Highlands.

If you prefer to go to a less developed hill, Maxwell Hill or Bukit Larut in Taiping is the one that you can go to. There isn't any 5 star hotel here but bungalows and rest houses for accommodation.

Fraser's Hill is another hill which is still pristine and not so developed. Activities here include bird watching, hiking, golfing, archery, horse riding, picnic by the waterfalls and boating.
