From January 1 2008, there are no public transports to/from Bukit Fraser. You have to take the comuter train from KL Sentral to Rawang, and change to the train to Kuala Kubu Bahru. There you will have to catch a taxi for the last 30 kms.
Fraser's Hill is approximately 103km north, or two hours' drive, from Kuala Lumpur. Visitors can take the Rawang exit from the highway and drive further north to Kuala Kubu Bahru (KKB) and up to Fraser's Hill. From KKB, take the road eastwards to Kuala Lipis/Raub. Travel for about 40km until you reach the Gap.

the new road is open for vehicles to go up to the hill station. the old road is only for going down to the Gap. So, there is no need to wait for the timing."
There's not too many transportation options in Fraser's Hill. There are no cabs here so it'll be better if you drove over here. For the whole time we were here, we walked for kilometres and hitched rides. Gd thing there are no serial killers here, only botanists. Eventually, we did see a quaint-looking bus that would trudged up the hill and downhill at four timings in the day. Uphill at 8am and 12noon and Downhill at 10am and 2pm.
Good news for all you people who've been reading tips abt the Gap road up to Fraser's Hill. As of April 2006, there is no more The Gap! There's now just a one-way road up to the hill, and a one-way road back down. Which should prove verrryyy reassuring for all as the roads are really too tiny to be a dual carriageway and u'd be likely to get a heart attack if u see a car coming from the opposite direction.
Still be careful for u never know if some fool has decided to stop at a most unopportune spot round a winding corner to photograph the gorgeous savage looking unkempt virgin foliage along the way, or at a little spot by a bridge where a beautiful little waterfall is cascading down the rocky hillside, or even as they are held up by monkeys/gibbons etc. yapping and bellowing, or like us, u almost drive over a huge frog running for dear life away from a slithery snake across the road!! We saved that frog's life, we did!! That poor snake must've been quite pissed off.
The way up to the hill from The Gap is via one-way controlled gate which operates alternately.Odd numbers for going up and even for going down.However gate will not be controlled after 8pm,which will be quite dangerous,considering dark (no lamp post) and curvy road all the way to the top ( or down )
One thing we learned the hard way.Although the gate opened for cars going down during even numbers (in my case we opted for 2.00pm) bear in mind the gate from the top will only open for 40 minutes.
We arrived at the gate at 2.45pm and we have to wait for the next gate at 4.00 pm.
to get to frasers hill, there's no other way besides the one narrow road.. and because it's narrow, there is a traffic control that only allows vehicles to go up on odd hours and down on even hours.. the place where this takes place is called the gap.. it takes approximately 15 minutes to get to frasers hill from the gap..
If you are coming from Kuala Lumpur take the NAEILA bus to Tanjung Malim from Puduraya at Platform 21-23. Get off at Kuala Kubu Bharu. There is only one bus a day to Fraser's Hill from Kuala Kubu Bharu at 10.30 am. Therefore, plan your trip well.
8.30 am : Raub Kuala - Kubu Bharu
10.30 am : Kuala Kubu Bharu - Fraser's Hill
11.45 am : Fraser's Hill - Raub
1.30 pm : Raub - Fraser's Hill
2.45 pm : Fraser's Hill - Kuala Kubu Bharu
4.00 pm : Kuala Kubu Bharu - Raub
Due to the road condition, traffic-flow is one-way each time. The up hill schedule is odd number hours (e.g. 7 am, 9 am) and down hill is even number hours (e.g. 8 am, 10 am). The gate remain open after 7 pm but there's no control, drive carefully.
Please bear in mind there ISN'T any Fuel station up there so please fill up your tank before going up.
