Top areas in Cameron Highlands
Cameron Highlands is an extensive hill station in Pahang, West Malaysia that is comprised of three townships and five settlements. The towns of Tanah Rata and Brinchang are the most popular. Cameron Highlands is ideal for laidback and natural getaways due to its cooler temperatures, farms and plantations, as well as the highest point in Malaysia accessible by road.
Gunung Brinchang is set 2,031 meters above sea level, and if the views from the summit aren’t satisfying enough, a 15-meter observation tower provides vast views of the Cameron Highlands and neighboring state of Perak. Mossey Forest and the Boh Tea plantation are ideal stops when visiting Gunung Brinchang. Lovers of flowers will also enjoy this area with Robinson Rose Garden, Rose Valley, Lavender Garden, Butterfly Garden, and Butterfly Farm. Guided tours are very popular, and some can guide you to the world’s largest flower – the Rafflesia.
The town of Tanah Rata is the most important, and in turn, it boasts the best chalets and hotels in the region. Many of the properties are found within walking distance of colonial architecture, tea plantations, and Robertson Waterfall. Cameron Highlands can be reached by road, and the five-hour drive from Kuala Lumpur brings travelers through some beautiful territory.
