3. Kuala Gandah National Elephant Conservation Centre 🐘

This might be a bit of a drive off Genting Highlands but we highly suggest you make a stop here before driving up, especially if you like elephants or have young children.

Unlike the overtly touristy spots like Genting’s bee or strawberry farm, we think this elephant conservation centre is worth your visit.
