BUKIT LARUT

Bukit Larut, formerly known as Maxwell Hill is a hill resort located 10 km from Taiping, Perak. Founded in 1884, it is the oldest hill resort in Malaysia.It is approximately 1250 m above sea level. Bukit Larut receives the highest rainfall in Malaysia because it is located in the wettest part of the country. Maxwell Hill was named after William George Maxwell, who was the British Assistant Resident in Perak.

Not as developed as other hill resorts such as the Genting Highlands and Cameron Highlands, Bukit Larut retains a colonial atmosphere with its quaint bungalows and English gardens.

Access is available only by resort authority's Land Rovers, although people are free to walk up the hill as many do for exercise (reaching the peak can take up to 3–5 hours).
