About Bukit Larut, Taiping
Bukit Larut, formerly known as Maxwell Hill (but still often referred to by its latter name), is a hill resort located 10 km from Taiping, Perak, Malaysia. Founded in 1884, it is the oldest hill resort in Malaysia. It is approximately 1250 m above sea level. Bukit Larut receives the highest rainfall in Malaysia because it is located in the wettest part of the country. Maxwell Hill was named after William George Maxwell, who was the British Assistant Resident in Perak. Not as developed as other hill resorts such as the Genting Highlands and Cameron Highlands, Bukit Larut retains a colonial atmosphere with its quaint bungalows and English gardens. Access is available only by (government owned) resort authority's Land Rovers (private vehicles are not allowed without a permit) although people are free to walk up the hill as many do for exercise (reaching the peak can take up to 3–5 hours). The journey, 13 kilometres from the base to the top of Bukit Larut using Land Rovers take around 30 minutes. Maxwell Hill still retains its colonial origins with its old bungalows and gardens. This hill is ideal for birdwatchers and nature lovers, as the area provides a welcoming environment for the local wildlife.Wikipedia

Can see the whole taiping city from the hilltop. Nice and chill environment but not much activity can be done up here. Recommended to take jeep up to the hilltop (around 30 mins ride one way @ RM10 per person).
I like it because when you reached at the top, the toilet is clean and the view is magnificient. Go hiking there use the tar road trek. Nice experience. Not reccommended using jeep because u cannot enjoy the journey of hiking up. Its just my preferences.
One cafe on top and limited selection. Best go up early and have a picnic there with own food and hot beverages.
quite good landscape but the road up to bukit larut is no in good condition n less choose for food
a good view from the top and it's can see the whole Taiping, if the weather is sunny, you can see the sea. It's quite here and enjoy breathing the fresh air.
