Hike through Malaysian strawberry fields
The Cameron Highlands is Malaysia's largest hill-station area. Named after William Cameron who discovered it in 1885, it is located 1,800m above sea level. A Cameron Highlands tour provides a charming combination of genteel tea culture, unexplored forests and traditional Malay villages.
The Highlands comprise three main townships. Each is at a different elevation and has its own unique flowers and vegetables. The area is the main producer of flowers in Malaysia and the landscape here is lush and green, with the scent of eucalyptus carried on the breeze.
The fresh climate makes the Highlands an ideal hiking destination and there is a range of trails, taking you through the surrounding villages, tea plantations and strawberry farms. You can stop for a drink at a tea factory and learn about the tea-making process, or relax and enjoy views over the rolling hills.
The area still feels a little like an English village of old and it’s popular with tourists. But it’s easy to leave the tourist areas behind and explore ancient temples in nearby villages. Whether you’re looking to relax in one of the comfortable hotels here or spend time hiking in the hills, our local experts will design the perfect Cameron HIghlands trip for you.
