Journal History

Fraser's Hill

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 8, 2010, 4:19 AM



Brief History:
Fraser's Hill derives its name from Louis James Fraser, a solitary Scottish pioneer, who set up a tin-ore trading post in the 1890s.[3][4] The British army had not explored the Titiwangsa Range, so Fraser recruited guides and coolies for an expedition to the upper ridges, prospecting for gold or other valuable metals. At the top he found an ancient forest of moss-draped trees and ferns with a prehistoric appearance, kept constantly moist in the cloud layer.

Location:
Fraser's Hill includes seven peaks, with altitudes between 1,220 and 1,525 meters above sea level.[8] The Meteorological Department station is measured at 1,280 m. Year round temperatures are between 17°C~25°C / 63°F~77°F.

The Gap is a steep road leading up to Fraser's Hill. It is a single tracked road winding up to the hill top, and it alternates for traffic to go up and down The Gap.

Well, there is quite a lot to do up on this hill, although it is quite a quiet place during off peak season. There were a huge variety of butterflies to be seen at Fraser's Hill, especially the moist banks of streams. Butterflies can be seen puddling under the intense morning/afternoon sun, despite being hot, it was cooling as compared to Singapore. Most of us who went for the trip did not sweat much whilst trekking and shooting during our trip to Fraser's Hill.

Wonderful gallery! I live in Thailand, seeing your Singaporean/Malaysian butterflies makes me want to get out more and see what else Thailand has to offer.
