Cameron Highlands, Malaysia

Cameron Highlands is the largest and most famous hill resort of Malaysia. Discovered by a British surveyor, William Cameron in 1885, this highland paradise still retains much of the charm of an English village.

Cameron Highlands is famous for its breathtaking scenery with cool-lush mountains peaks, waterfalls, tea plantations, and terraces of vegetable, fruit and flower gardens. The hill station has an altitude of 1500 m.

Cameron Highlands is the smallest district in the state of Pahang. Although it is in Pahang, its two main exits go to Tapah and Ipoh in the state of Perak. It is made up of 3 main townships at different altitudes. The lowest is Ringlet, 1,200 metres above sea level situated near Bertam Valley where the soil is rich thus making this area the main agricultural center of the highlands. Further up is Tanah Rata, which is the principal township where the banks and government offices are located. Next is Brinchang, which is about 15 minutes drive from Tanah Rata. Most of the hotels and petrol pumps are located here.

Cameron offers plenty of opportunities to tourists such as mountain hiking, jungle trekking, and golf.
