Bukit Larut (Maxwell Hill)
< back to index
Bukit Larut, or more widely known as Maxwell Hill is a great retreat with a spectacular view. Malaysia's oldest hill resort is located here. Bukit Larut is accessible only by four-wheel drive vehicles as the way up is consists of twists and turns through the tropical virgin jungle.
While not everybody owns a four-whel drive, a Land Rover service is made available at the foot of the hill. The service operates at hourly intervals from 7 am to 6 pm daily.
As you accend, the cool air and the fragrance of fresh greenery will revitalise and perk you up. At the summit, one would be treated with a spectacular view of the westcoast of the Malaysian peninsula.
Accommodations are available at the Bukit Larut Resthouse and reservations can be made through the Superintendent of Bukit Larut, Taiping.
