Taiping Maxwell Hill, Malaysia

Taiping Maxwell Hill also known as Bukit Larut is one of the tourist attractions in Taiping. It is also one of the favorite spot for the locals to hike. It is possible to hike all the way up to the peak which will take around 3 hours. Alternatively, you could take the jeep service to the peak but recommended to do booking in advance during the peak season such as school holidays. Other than the cooling weather and greens, there is nothing much to do at the peak but visitors are required to spend 3 hours at the peak and to wait for the next jeep service back to the base. 3 hours is rather lengthy to spend at the peak so I would not recommend this place for those who has a tight travelling schedule.

We waited a while for our ‘Roti Canai’ to be served due to the poor service and only one person preparing it

This is probably the only place that we could hang out besides the cafe while waiting for the jeep service back to the base of Maxwell Hill
