Cameron Highlands

The rolling hills (1500 to 1800m above sea level) and lush vegetation of the Cameron Highlands were first discovered in 1885 by the English surveyor William Cameron, however it was a few decades later that the area was recognised by the British colonial government as being the perfect place for a hill station.

Why visit Cameron Highlands ?

  • Visit the tea plantations and factories of the famed Cameron Highlands
  • Admire the views of the beautiful rolling hills
  • Stroll through the mountains and explore the nearby waterfalls
  • Sample spa treatments based on ancient tea rituals & healing cultures

With its fertile soil and cooler climate, it soon became a focus for farmers, tea plantations, flower and strawberry growers and there are a few towns dotted amongst its beautiful and colourful scenery. Trekking to waterfalls and villages of the indigenous Orang Asli tribes, delicious tea tasting, visiting gardens and butterfly farms are some of the key highlights in this beautiful region of Malaysia.
