About Cameron Highlands

Cameron Highlands, a hilly region in Pahang, Malaysia is accessible from Kuala Lumpur and Perak.

It started as an outpost for the British somewhere in the late 19th century.

There are 3 main townships – Brinchang, Tanah Rata and Ringlet. With smaller villages like Blue Valley, Tringkap and Kea Farm in between.

The elevation range is between 2,600 ft to ~5,200 ft above sea level.  A cooler climate encourages growth of various flora not seen in the mainland. Strawberries and tea are notable crops here!
