马来西亚半岛,也称为西马(前称马来亚),是马来西亚的一部分,位于马来半岛。覆盖了约131,598方公里。北方与泰国为邻,南方是新加坡。越过马六甲海峡的西方是印尼苏门答腊岛。估计人口约有2千一百万,占全马人口和经济80%。

 

马来半岛拥有数座山脉,由北延伸向南方。主干山脉为蒂蒂旺砂山脉,把半岛一分为二成东马和西马。半岛第二高峰,Korbu山,也落在此山脉。向东延伸的是Bintang山脉。半岛最高峰则是位于Tahan山脉的Tahan山。

 

这些山脉都是半岛河流系统的源头。崎岖的地势也缔造了数座壮观的瀑布和无数大大小小的瀑布。

Peninsular Malaysia (Malay: Semenanjung Malaysia), also known as West Malaysia (formerly Malaya), is the part of Malaysia which lies on the Malay Peninsula. Its area is 131,598 square kilometers (50,810 square miles). It shares a land border with Thailand in the north. To the south is the island of Singapore. Across the Strait of Malacca to the west lies the island of Sumatra. With an estimated population of 21 million, it accounts for the majority (roughly 80%) of Malaysia's population and economy.

 

Peninsula Malaysia contains numerous mountain ranges running parallel from north to south along the peninsula. The main mountain range is the Titiwangsa Mountains, which divides the peninsula between its east and west coasts. It houses Mount Korbu, the second highest peak in the Peninsular. These mountains are heavily forested, and mainly composed of granite.  To the east of this range is the Bintang Range. The highest peak in the Peninsular is Mount Tahan, located on the Tahan Range.

 

These ranges are the origin of some of Peninsula Malaysia's river systems which boosted several manificient waterfalls and countless cascade.
