Welcome to Cameron Highlands

Cameron Highlands

The holiday destination of Cameron Highlands is the largest hill resort in Malaysia, located at the northwestern edge of Pahang state at an altitude of 6,001 feet (1,829m). This fertile region comprises a series of villages scattered along the main road amidst terraced plantations bursting with vegetable, tea, flower and strawberry plantations.

The colourful Cameron Highlands rose gardens and Tudor inns share the best of British customs within a climate suited to more refined activities. While on holiday, the scenic drive along the main route of the Highlands can be taken at a leisurely pace to include a stop at the Kuala Who Forest Recreation Park and the Lata Iskandar waterfall.

The pleasure of a holiday in the Cameron Highlands (besides the temperate conditions) is the choice of attractions. Whilst the emphasis is on relaxation, this can be achieved with the inclusion of strolls through Brinchang's market square, pottering around the handicraft stores or unwinding at the Buddhist Temple.

Besides Brinchang, Ringlet and Tanah Rata are quaint towns to explore from Cameron Highlands. Other popular holiday activities in the area include trips to the tea plantations, strawberry farms and waterfalls. Walks are numerous and scenic and can be enjoyed at leisure over a few days. The Cameron Highlands' 18-hole, par-71 golf course is open to the public.
