Welcome to Bukit Larut

Bukit Larut

The holiday retreat of Bukit Larut, known formerly as Maxwell Hill, is the oldest hill station in Malaysia and is situated seven miles (12km) from Taiping, at an altitude of 3343 feet (1,019m). This cool and peaceful hill station has resisted the sweep of commercialism. The journey to the top of the hill station is an exhilarating climb that can only be undertaken by four-wheel drive. From the summit, a panoramic view of the coast from Penang to Pangkor can be enjoyed. Eight bungalows nestled on the hill provide the only Bukit Larut holiday accommodation. A Land Rover at the foot of the hill departs hourly.
