Three-Hour Escapes From Kuala Lumpur Map

"Highland Getaway, Swamps and Wildlife Rehab"


Three-Hour Escapes from Kuala Lumpur map nature's course to the hinterlands. Now it's time to really get away and relax amid nature landscapes and nature sounds.

Getting further out gives you a chance to explore.

Whether it's zipping up to the highlands of Fraser's Hill to avoid tropic heat or linger in the maze-like swamps of Tasik Bera, Three-Hour Escapes allow your stressed senses to rejuvenate.

Take the challenge of doing something different. Go on a search for one of the planet's grandest rainforest flowers. Seek out a bird species you've never seen before or trek to a mountain summit for the first time.

Some of these Three-Hour Escapes take some effort and a good level of fitness. Try to gauge the difficulty of the terrain and trail conditions and use your common sense to guide you. Take a slower pace if needed or make alternative plans and arrangements for easier treks.

Finding your own way to rainforest waterfalls, Rafflesia flowers or birdwatching in jungle habitat can be a 'lost' cause. Never forego safety to save money. Use a good jungle guide and see how much nature's path really can offer.

Mark out your Kuala Lumpur map guide, pack your adventure travel gear and let's hit the hiking trails!
