Malaysia: 10 locations to go to on a Cameron Highlands Day tour

“Forgive us for speaking loudly non-stop,” Kuya Rey apologized for everybody in the middle of a extremely vibrant conversation. “It’s just that it’s not frequently that we satisfy fellow Filipinos right here in Cameron Highlands. There are only 11 of us here.”

Kuya Rey works as a travel agent in Cameron Highlands in the specify of Pahang in Malaysia. The weather condition was rather gloomy, however the bright energy filled the environment in the town of Tanah Rata. We were fortunate as well as thankful that in our 3-day stay there, we were able to find across six OFWs (Overseas Filipino Workers) in the region.

With OFWs in Cameron Highlands. They were so nice as well as helpful.
Tanah Rata town Center, Cameron Highlands
Tanah Rata actually means “flat ground,” so required its topographical function that paved method for settlements to boom in this part of the mountains. It is the biggest town in Cameron Highlands, an extensive hill station spanning  712 square kilometers. It has emerged as a preferred tourist destination for many who desire to experience a more “countryside” way of life as well as getaway the warm of the city. What I liked most about the region is its climate. typical temperatures just play between 24°C (average high) as well as 14°C (average low). It boasts an active tourism, propelled mainly by its tea plantations, rainforests, as well as different farms.

The most typical activity in Cameron Highlands is the so-called “Leisure Tour” that takes visitors to the tea plantations as well as mossy forests. You have two options: half day as well as full day. In the listing below, half day tour ends at the strawberry farm. (Note that we booked a whole-day tour of the town as well as close-by Brinchang with Cameron holiday tours as well as Adventure, a tour operator for which Kuya Rey works for.)

1. Boh Tea Plantation as well as Factory

BOH Tea Plantation
The BOH Tea Plantation was the very first stop in the “leisure tour” that we availed of.  BOH Plantations Sdn Bhd is the number 1 tea grower in Malaysia. They have a number of tea gardens in Cameron Highlands. They create over 4 million kilos of tea every year, about 70% of all tea produced in Malaysia. There are over a thousand different varieties of teas, however to many tea lovers, four primary types dominate the tea world — black, green, white, as well as oolong. All four are made of the leaves of Camellia sinensis. BOH grows black tea, the stronger, bolder, as well as more oxidized type. We were dropped off at the side of the road that snakes across the vast fields as well as rolling hills of shrubs.

We likewise got to check out the tea factory where we watched workers process tea leaves they harvested from the farm. There are exhibit halls that showcase the old equipment, boards depicting the history of the company, as well as a short video about the place. One corner tucks a little store where guests can purchase BOH tea products. At the other side of the hall is the Tea’Ria Refreshment Area, which serves their premium teas together with some delectable pastries. checked out more about BOH Tea Plantation here.

2. Mossy forest of Gunung Brinchang

The Mossy forest of Gunung Brinchang, Cameron Highlands
There is something haunting about the 200,000-year old Mossy forest of Gunung Brinchang, the second greatest peak in Cameron Highlands as well as the greatest point in Peninsular Malaysia that is accessible by road. even from afar, when I was looking at the area from the 50m tall Lookout Tower, I might feel the eerie environment it fostered as it slowly welcomed the blanketing thick sheet of low-lying clouds.

At 2000 meters tall, the summit of Gunung Brinchang routinely catches a great deal of rain as well as constantly embraces mists as well as clouds, ensuring a damp as well as dewy environment, to the satisfaction of the wide array of plants that cover its slopes. The trees are hugged by thick layers of moss, lichen, as well as ferns that drape from their trunks to the ground. Around the path are a number of Nepenthes pitcher plants (also understood as monkey cups), a tropical montane monotypic plant with flowers that trap its prey, usually insects as well as little vertebrates. more about the Mossy forest as well as exactly how I miss the huge poor Wolf here.

3. Taman Rama-Rama Butterfly as well as Reptile Park

Taman Rama-Rama’s Butterfly Park is not that different from the usual butterfly gardens we have right here in the Philippines. I assumption when you’ve been to one, you’ve been to all. What sets it apart from the pack though is the mini-zoo next to it. They have rather a diverse collection of bugs as well as little reptiles that youngsters will truly enjoy as well as adults may discover curious.

I can’t even look at them for more than 2 seconds
I’m just not huge on bugs as well as crawlers — they provide me the creeps — so I really just breezed with the place.

4. חוות התות של ראג’ו היל

There are many things in as well as about Cameron Highlands that remind me so much of Baguio City right here in the Philippines. one of them is their obsession with strawberries, as well as this is clearly evident in locations like Raju Hill, a strawberry farm that is available to everybody for free. guests are invited to go around the farm as long as they don’t pluck fruits. however if you want to have a taste of their strawberries, there’s a cafe in the area where they serve a wide array of strawberry products — from cakes to shakes. Fresh strawberries are likewise available.

5. חוות קאה מרכזית מוגברת

ורדים הם אדומים. הו חכה…
The Rose Centre Kea Farm, simply understood in the region as increased Centre, is found around 5km from Brinchang. Established in 1989, it was originally a vegetable farm however later blossomed into a vibrant garden. aside from a wide range of roses, the location boasts hundred of other flowers of all shapes, sizes, as well as colors. It is made up of 10 levels of terraces, spanning an entire deal with of a slope of a hill. checked out more about increased center here.


Maybe it was just the weather condition however there truly was not anything spectacular about Ee Feng Gu Bee Farm. It has already started raining as well as we might not roam around the area anymore. thing is, there was truly not much in the area however the rows of honey combs skirting a typical garden. They most likely offer guided tours with presentation of honey harvesting however that was not offered during our visit. The giant statues of honey bees were cute, though.

Jollibee, what are you doing here?

7. חוות פטריות

My go to to the mushroom farm was unforgettable mainly since I had not been to one before. The center grows abalone mushrooms of different colors — grey, yellow, coral, white. We even spotted one  monkey head mushroom (Hericium erinaceus), so required its hairy or furry appearance. adorable as these mushrooms may look, we ended up buying nothing. If only they offer cooked mushroom dishes, instead.

Fungi feast!

8. כיכר שוק

The Market Square consists of a couple of lanes of stalls, selling mainly produce. While it may appear regular to many, inspecting out the stores right here proved to be entertaining as well. many things that were new to me instantly caught my attention. From blue roses to giant eggplants (I had never seen eggplants that big!) to strawberries on stick (well, I had seen strawberries alright however not offered on stick a la barbeque). There was likewise a cart serving Malaysian-style street food.

Roses for sale. I adore the blue as well as orange ones.
Strawberries on stick, anyone?

9. סם פו בודהיסט מקדש

Standing on top of a hill overlooking Brinchang, Sam Poh temple provides a stunning view of the town as well as a fantastic location for relaxation as well as meditation. stated to be the fourth biggest Buddhist temple in Malaysia, the temple is composed of a number of halls that home giant statues of Buddha as well as the  Four Heavenly Kings among others. The temple was developed in 1972 as well as has been maintained by monks.

10. Parit Falls כמו גם שביל הג’ונגל

“This is the most amazing waterfall I have seen in Malaysia today,” a guy next to us declared. He was amused however sarcastic at the exact same time. Parit waterfall is small, underwhelming, as well as does not truly compare to a few of the other waterfalls I had seen in Malaysia. however the location was still appealing, at least to me, who is always in like with the forest. The site was truly tranquil as well as calming. From here, two jungle tracks might be taken as well as I truly wished to do the one that would lead to the town center of Tanah Rata. Unfortunately, we were afraid it would rain heavily in the next hour that we would be drenched by the time we reach our hostel.

If I would do it again, I would opt with the half-day tour instead. many of the sites we visited during the latter half of our tour were more on the “tourist trap” end of the spectrum. They felt like fillerג.

האמת, הסיבה העיקרית לכך שתהיהנו לנסוע לרמות קמרון הייתה אפשרות לראות את הרפלסיה, הפרח הגדול ביותר עלי אדמות. לרוע המזל, תזמון לקוי פישל שוב את התוכניות שלנו. זו כבר לא הייתה עונת הפרחים אז היינו צריכים לעשות את כל סיור הפנאי הזה ביום. אמנם לא קיבלנו את מה שהגענו לכאן, אך עדיין נשארנו די מרוצים. כל כך מרוצה מכל המיקומים במלזיה שהייתי בהם, קמרון היילנדס הוא החביב עלי ביותר.
