3 days 2 nights birdwatching in one of Malaysia's finest hill station
This tour is designed to explore Fraser's Hill, nestled in the central highlands of Peninsular Malaysia at an average elevation of 1200 m (4000 ft) asl. With its quaint and charming colonial architecture, it is often dubbed the 'little England' of Malaysia.
More importantly, most of the area is undeveloped and pristine montane rainforest is easily accessible with tarred roads all around the hill. This world-renowned site for ecotourism is a real draw for birdwatchers around the globe.
With over 250 species of birds recorded, there are many regional specialties to be seen along with a whole host of splendid looking avian species.
This tour is organized for up to 4 people. We will have our own personal transportation, an air-conditioned and spacious car and accommodation will be in a 3-star hotel in Fraser's Hill.
