After leaving Melaka it was on (and up 2000m) to the Genting Highlands. This was a strange place of rain and fog high in jungle covered mountains crowned with a surreal under-cover labyrinth of expensive hotels, noisy theme-parks and Malaysia’s only casino. Needless to say we professional travel photographers were only there for the scenery and therefore didn’t lose too much at the casino 😉
Getting to and from Genting is via the Skyway cable car – a very long, fast ride, high over thick jungle, with mountain views. Soaring over the trees with Siamang gibbons (worlds largest) swinging underneath as their calls echoed out in the mountains on a misty morning was unreal.
