Cameron Highlands


Cameron Highlands

The Cameron Highlands is located in the state of Pahang, approximately 200 km north of Kuala Lumpur. At about 1,500 meters above sea level, it is the highest area on the mainland stretching along a plateau set high above the river valley and enjoys a cool climate and fresh air, making it the perfect holiday getaway. Temperatures fluctuate between 22° and 25° Celsius during the day and between 15° and 22° Celsius at night.

British expatriates would frequent the highlands on vacation, to relax and escape the lowland tropical heat, and British planters soon realised the potential of its fertile mountain slopes for growing tea. Cameron Highlands is still home to many tea plantations, as well as strawberry and vegetable farms, jungle trails, cascading waterfalls and rose gardens. Much of the highlands' character remains unchanged, and still as charming as ever. The highlands remains very unchanged since colonial times. It is endearingly known to some as the 'little England in Asia'. The cool climate and picturesque plateaus are still popular and a perfect retreat for golfing, jungle trekking and exploration to some of the many other tea plantations and gardens or for nostalgic journeys through reconstructions of English cottages, narrow village lanes, and afternoon tea and scones accompanied by locally produced strawberry jam. The Cameron Highlands Resort is ideal all year round for families, honeymooners and holidaymakers.
