Cameron Highlands is a gorgeous hill station nestled in the hills of Pahang in Malaysia, in the northwestern tip of the country near the South China Sea in Southeast Asia. Bordered by the Malaysian states of Perak and Kelantan, this hilly district is home to eight different settlements that boast of stunning views, expansive plantations, nurseries, colonial bungalows, and hidden waterfalls.
Stretching to 700 square kilometres, this wonderland is home to cool weather and picturesque views that are a stark contrast to the bustling cities of Malaysia. The postcard-perfect valley is home to the famous BOH tea plantation and the Kea Strawberry Farm, where patrons can pick their own produce!
Indulge in a relaxing, serene weekend at Lavender Garden or Butterfly Farm, spending time with chirping birds and fluttering butterflies. As you stroll through the European-looking landscape, visit the many Tudor-style inns that serve aromatic teas and scones.
Adventure lovers are sure to enjoy the winding trekking paths to the ethereal Mossy Forest that offer panoramic views of the valley. Go swimming at Parit Falls or take a beekeeping lesson at EeFengGu Honeybee Farm. There are a number of birdwatching stations at Pos Rantau for nature enthusiasts – look out for the distinct call of tropical birds of paradise here!
First surveyed by the British in the late nineteenth century, Cameron Highlands presents a unique juxtaposition of English culture and traditional Malay aboriginal practices – one can find handsome horse riding stations and golf resorts right next to traditional tea brewing centres and Aboriginal temples.
