Malaysian Mountains and Highlands
Here is the list of the main Malaysian mountains, including the highlands, and their respective heights in meters.
For both the serious and amateur mountain climbers, rock-climbers, and nature trekkers, the mountains and highlands of Malaysia actually make great destinations to enjoy their hobbies or pastimes.
They are not as high and tough as the peaks of the Himalayas, for example, and they don't require sophisticated oxygen tanks or mountaineering equipment to ascend them.
So they are quite ascendable by even new and "touristic" mountain climbers, although of course they must be physically fit and be well prepared.
It is however important to note that the facilities at the sites of some of these Malaysian mountains are very basic and minimal, and that permits may be required to be obtained from the authorities before embarking on the climb or journey.
And the use of guides may be mandatory for some of them.
The best policy, of course, is to register and inform the relevant authorities before making any ascent or trekking up the summits. This is to ensure that assistance for untoward or unforeseen circumstances would be received quickly.
Some of them, because of their relatively cool weather, like Penang Hill (Bukit Bendera), Fraser's Hill, Cameron Highlands and Genting Highlands, are already very popular tourist and holiday spots with leisure and recreational activities.
Ascents to these popular highlands are usually through very nice roads and railcars.

Well, whatever your aspirations or intentions are, whether for serious climbing or just leisure vacation, I hope you enjoy yourself at the summits of the Malaysian mountains and highlands.
Love our mountains.
