hi Bob, 

I was just at Fraser's Hill the other week. The Cameron Highlands have 
been ruined by deforestation apparently so go to Fraser's Hill, it is 
dead easy to get to but quite expensive (it isn't a backpacker spot). 
Birding is very easy there and you can walk everywhere. The Telekom Loop is the 
best road. I'm in Burma right now and the internet connections 
are not good so I can't provide a direct link, but if you go to and go to the Forums and find the Vacational Trip Reports 
part, there's my thread in there called 
"Chlidonias Goes To Asia, part three: 2013" -- it should be somewhere in the 
top ten threads I guess. My last big post in the thread is all 
about Fraser's Hill and has some information in it you might find 

(I hope this email actually sends!)

Hi Birders and good birding for 2014,

I shall be in Kuala Lumpur between 07 and 11 April (dates not absolutely

And I am intending to go to either Fraser's Hill or the Cameron Highlands

I shall probably take local transport to either and then spend my time
walking and birding

I would really appreciate any suggestions from those that have been to
either to help me decide.

Access, accommodation, best trails, local on-site birders/guides, etc

I am not looking for expensive accommodation just a place to lay my head

I understand places to eat may be a challenge

Rather spend my cash on a guide than accomm

Appreciate any help

Many thanks

Bob Ashford
