When you walk the various trails you get to meet and experience the culture of the native population and enjoy the magnificent rainforest plant life and animal life. Walking is an experience of all the senses, of sound, taste smells, sights and taste.

Highland Walk and Hiking promises pleasant and lasting memories of your time in the cool highlands resorts amidst ancient rainforest flora, birds and other fauna. We assure you that a walking holiday will be the best part of holiday.

Highland Walk and Hiking offers residential center based walks and self guided walks to several locations in Malaysia. We are mindful of the needs of our clientele and our choice of locations provide for a pleasant accommodation, good food and excellent nature.

Malaysia is a very safe country to visit and English is widely spoken. Due to heat of the lowlands our tour are located in the highlands were the temperatures are moderate and more conducive to outdoor walking. Our guides are active walkers themselves and knowledgeable about the plant life, birdlife and other wildlife of the area. If you require some help with your choice of tour, or where to go, please do contact us.

Residential Center Based Walking

Stay in one place and come back to your comfortable bedroom each night! For those whose companion is not a walker there are enough other activities to keep them occupied while you are on the trails. Residential centers provide a wide range of trails – a choice of easy, medium or for people who like to go with a small guided group, on a particular trail or area, all at the same walking grade.

Mysterious  Perlis State Park

Mysterious Perlis State Park

Request For Rate

Only for the most adventurerous among us, a 45 minutes ferry ride from Langkawi take us to Perlis is the Northern most protected area in Malaysia.  5000ha Perlis State Park (PSP) is located at the Western border of Perlis with Thailand. It forms a transboundry protected area with the 20,000ha Thaleban National Park in Satun, Thailand.

Perlis State Park sits mainly on limestone thus, the landscape is unusually dramatic with steep cliff face, enclosed valleys, pinnacles and caves. PSP is unique in that its forest is semi-deciduous on limestone. This results in many unusual and unique species that have evolved and adapted to this dry rocky condition.

The Wang Mu area of the PSP is also the only place in the world where tin was mined intensively from natural caves. This 100 year old industry only ceased in the 1980s and the mines abandoned. Much of this rich history still await proper documentation.

Apart from watching PSP's interesting wildlife, this excursion will have our guests visit the dark mysterious labyrinth of Gua Wang Burma. Be prepared to get wet and dirty while learning more about limestone and cave. A challenging climb up Bukit Pelarit, the park's highest limestone peak at 553m will reward you with stunning vistas of the surrounding landscape including views of Langkawi and Ko Tarotau in Thailand. It also allows you to experience the unique limestone semi-deciduous forest.

Accommodation will be at the comfortable Wang Kelian Park Headquarters. This trip is suitable for the more adventurous who are independent and relatively fit.
