This highland is located about 100 KM from Kuala Lumpur, and about 2-3 hours journey. This journey take a long hour due to a narrow, winding and one-way road. You may wait for your turn to up and down the last 8 KM journey which controlled by a gate system. I still remember we only drive uphill according to odd hours and downhill by even hours. If you reached the point by even hours, you must wait until even hours to uphill. So, please plan your journey.

How To Get There ?
If you driving from Kuala Lumpur via the Karak Highway, please turn left at the Bentong junction and proceed to Teranum. At Teranum, take the left turn towards Gap before the short ascent up to Fraser's Hill.

Alternatively, one can also take the old trunk route heading towards Penang and turn off at Kuala Kubu Bharu for the drive to the Gap. The last 8 km from the Gap to the top of Fraser's Hill 9 scenic, narrow winding which carries one-way traffic 7.00 a.m. to 7.00 p.m.
