Kuala Lipis (Jawi: كوالا ليڤيس) is a mukim and capital of Lipis District, Pahang, Malaysia with a population of 20,000.
Kuala Lipis was a gold-mining centre before the British arrived in 1887. In 1898, it became the capital of Pahang within the British-adminstered Federated Malay States. During this colonial era, grand buildings, such as the imposing district offices and the Clifford School, and the Pahang Club were built. The hilltop house of the British resident is now a hotel and museum. The town grew and prospered with the coming of the railway in 1924. However, in August 1955, the state capital was shifted to Kuantan, and Kuala Lipis fell into decline.
