Which Highlands to visit? and where to hike?

Posted by itinerantlondoner on 9/1/2013 at 15:29

Hello! I'm going to be in peninsular Malaysia for 7-10 days at the end of March. I'm planning to see KL, Penang & Melacca, but I also want to get out of the cities and see the Highlands. I've heard a lot about the Cameron Highlands - but is it too busy and touristy? How does it compare to the Genting Highlands & Fraser's Hill? I'd be looking for somewhere to chill out for a couple of days, with some walking and nice views - would they all fit the bill? I'm also keen on some more stre ...

Borneo Orangutans

Posted by Mikecowlan on 22/12/2012 at 12:30

http://www.lbah.com/word/wildlife-photography/ The web site is from a veterinarian that has been to Camp Leakey 2x. His photos, especially of baby orangutans at the rehabilitation center are the best I have ever seen. There is even a picture of an orangutan giving the finger! I found this while researching an Africa trip. His web site is the best I have seen so far regarding explanations and pictures of many travels around the world that include nature and wildlife.
