Lojing or Lojing Highlands (Jawi: لوجيڠ, Chinese: 罗京) is a hill village in the Gua Musang constituency of Kelantan, Malaysia. It is located right next to Cameron Highlands in Pahang, along the Second East-West Highway Jkr-ft185.png.

Administration[edit]

In 2010 Lojing was made an autonomous sub-district (Jajahan Kecil Lojing). Several state and federal agencies will open their branches there following the arrangement; municipal works remain under the responsibility of Gua Musang. It is divided into three communes: Betis, Hau and Sigar.[1]

Geography and demographics[edit]

The Lojing Highlands is rich in flora and fauna and is famed for its biodiversity. Its well preserved pristine hills and jungles are popular eco-tourist attraction. There are many species of high-quality tropical hardwood such as teak, mahogani, chengal and meranti located in the jungles of the Lojing Highlands.

Most of the people that live in the Lojing area belong to the indigenous Orang Asli tribes, mainly the Temiar tribe of the Senoi nations.[1]
