History and mystery of Fraser Hills
Fraser’s Hill, or Bukit Fraser, sits majestically among the clouds at 1,200m and was “discovered” in the 1890s by a Scottish prospector, James Fraser, searching for minerals. Years later, Fraser went missing from the tin ore mine he established on the hill, and it wasn’t until a search party was dispatched in 1917 that the British colonial authorities saw the full potential of the area. Fraser was never found but they realized they’d come across the perfect location to escape from the tropical heat of lowland Malaya. Little did the Brits know when they painstakingly cut the road through the jungle and forest to the hilltop that they’d created an outer that would one day be regarded as a pilgrimage for cyclists.
Kuala Kubu > Head southeast on Jalan Bukit Kerajaan (100 m) > Route 55 (31.3 km) > Jalan Gap-Bukit Fraser/Route 56 (7.7 km) > Jalan Gap-Bukit Fraser > (500 m) Fraser Hill Clock Tower > Jalan Lady Maxwell/Route 422 (600 m) > Jalan Lady Maxwell (11 m) Distance Approx.42km
The views are truly spectacular, especially on the initial 11km of the descent, which features a road narrower and slightly more twisty than the longer section that follows. But it’s a one-way road to compensate, so there’s no danger of a vehicle coming the other way.
Exiting some of the corners deliver you into a dark canopied tube of trees, while others open out to glorious landscapes of seemingly endless forest-covered valleys, soaring skyward and diving deep into the earth. A concrete bridge spans one chasm; stop here, take in the world or look over the edge for an added jolt of adrenalin.
The one-way section (which actually has a few short ups and false flats) ends at The Gap, a tiny settlement consisting of a guardhouse, a refreshments shack and an odd assortment of other dwellings. This is where the choice of down to KKB or Raub is made. Both options are similar, about 28km in length and on well-surfaced roads, and cut through what seems at times to be a tunnel of vegetation.
This helps keep the sun away, not that you’ll feel the heat at Fraser’s. Most mornings are greeted with some mist or clouds, which is understandable when you consider the altitude. Packing a lightweight windbreaker or even a jacket is advisable to ward off the chill.
