Welcome to the Cameron Highlands, better known as the backbone of Malaysia! It’s a mountain range that runs up the center of mainland Malaysia. People come here to experience the great outdoors and escape city life.
Things you can do here include visiting tea plantations, local farms, by local honey and visit the mosey forest. The three towns of the Cameron Highlands are, Brinchang, Tanah Rata and Ringlet. Visitors have a great selection of hotels and restaurants to choose from. I recommend taking two full days to experience the Cameron Highlands.
During our first day we took a half day tour with EcoCameron. Our day starts a tea plantation, from there we head to the mosey forest, and lastly a tea factory. We visited the highest mountain in the Cameron Highlands, which also has the highest road in the Malaysia.
The mosey forest is the smallest and the most complex ecosystem in the rainforest. It’s confined to only areas that are 2000 meters high. This is the most accessible mosey forest in the country.
Boh tea factory was built in 1945 and is the oldest tea factory in the Cameron Highlands. We tried a few delicious teas and shopped for our favorites! The views from the tea centre are beautiful!
Next up we visit a strawberry far. Many of these strawberry farms allow visitors to pick their own strawberries. It cost around 10 USD for half kilo of strawberries. It was hard for us to finish these strawberries in those two days.
Something fun to do in the Cameron Highlands and it plan a visit to a local bee farm. It will give you the chance to see different species of bee and learn the inner working of a hive. You will also get to sample and buy some honey to take back home with you. Most of the bee farms here are free to enter.
We head to Uncle Chows restaurant for lunch. They serve traditional authentic Malaysian. For me the most delicious dish was the curry laksa. It is to die for!! The reason why Malaysian food is so good is because it’s a mix of Malaysian, Indian and Chinese cuisine.
We hope you enjoyed the top things to do in the Cameron Highland! Have you been to the Cameron Highlands? Leave a comment below!
