Refreshing verdant hills, an English cottage, honeybee farms, tea plantations and strawberries. These are just some of the interesting things you will find in Cameron Highlands, Malaysia's largest highland resort. Cameron Highlands was named after William Cameron, a British government surveyor who stumbled across a plateau in 1885 during a mapping expedition on the Titiwangsa Range. But it was not until 1925 when Sir George Maxwell visited the highlands and decided to develop it as a hill station. Cameron Highlands was a haven for the British officials station in Malaya as it provided relief from the hot and humid tropical climate of the lowlands.
At Cameron Highlands, the best thing to do is relax, feast your eyes on the vast greenery and of course, enjoy a cup of English tea, a British tradition not to be missed! Bird-watching and trekking are also popular activities here.
Situated 1,500 metres above sea level, Cameron Highlands comprises a series of little townships that include the Ringlet, Tanah Rata, Brinchang, Tringkap, Kuala Terla and Kampung Raja. It is easily accessible, a mere 3.5-hour drive from Kuala Lumpur.
