The Genting highlands are a hill station situated at 1700m above sea level in the Titiwangsa mountains, 51km northeast of KL. They are easily accessible from KL, either by road or road & cablecar (the Genting Skyway). In Genting there is a resort consisting of a number of hotels, a shopping mall, an indoor and an outdoor theme park and the only legal land-based casino in Malaysia. In 2006 the resort had over 18 million visitors. It is surrounded by a 100 million years old rainforest.
The Genting highlands do not offer much in terms of hiking trails and in fact it is not easy to leave the resort area. A visit to Genting usually consists of walking through the shopping mall, gambling in the casino or playing in the theme park. Due to the altitude the temperature hovers between 14C and 25C the whole year.
