Top 10 Attractions In Cameron Highlands

CAMERON HIGHLANDS

The Cameron Highlands were named after William Cameron, a British explorer, and geologist who was commissioned by the then colonial government to map out the Pahang-Perak border area in 1885.

In a statement concerning his mapping expedition, Cameron mentioned he saw “a sort of vortex on the mountains, while for a (reasonably) wide area we have gentle slopes and plateau land.

Kea Farm,at an altitude of 1610 meters above sea level (5282 feet), is the highest located village in the Cameron Highlands and also peninsular Malaysia, and it is one of the most famous tourist spots in Cameron Highlands. Plenty of stalls selling fresh vegetables, flowers, butterfly farms, and self-plucking strawberry farms can be found here. From Kea Farm there is also the access road to the Sungai Palas Tea Estate and to the highest mountain in Cameron Highlands, Gunung Brinchang (2031 m.). The Equatorial hotel and Nova Highlands Resort and Residence are located here.

All Souls’ Church is located in Tanah Rata, Cameron Highlands, Pahang, Malaysia.

The church was established in 1958. It is affiliated to the Anglican Diocese of West Malaysia and the Council of Churches, Malaysia.

The Time Tunnel is Malaysia’s first memorabilia museum. Located in Brinchang, it is recognized as one of the main attractions of the Cameron Highlands. It is approximately 90 kilometers (56 mi) from Ipoh or about 200 kilometers (120 mi) from Kuala Lumpur

The complex is unlike any other in Peninsular Malaysia — it is filled with collectibles and memorabilia that serve as a reminder of what life was like in Malaysia during the pre-War years. 

The museum was established in January 2007. Since then, it has continued to grow at a measured pace. Situated at the basement of Kok Lim Strawberry Farm, the split-level unit occupies a passageway that stretches for more than 80 meters. There are more than 4,000 objects and photographs on display here. They are showcased in eight galleries covering an area of approximately 14,000 square feet.

The museum can be reached via public or private transport. It is less than two kilometers from Brinchang town or about seven kilometers from Tanah Rata.  It is open daily from 9 am to 6 pm. There are no restrictions to photography at this place.

Brinchang (also Brinchang) is a town and hill resort located at an altitude of 1,540 meters (5,050 ft) in Cameron Highlands in the state of Pahang, Malaysia.

Brinchang is the highest and second largest township of Cameron Highlands, situated on a gently sloping plateau about 2 km after Tanah Rata or 3 km before Kea Farm. While relatively small in spread compared to Tanah Rata, Brinchang is the densest in development – a tourist hub with local flavors and style.

The epicenter of Brinchang is a tight pocket of shophouses—restaurants, stores, and budget hotels, while the surroundings hold further commercial developments, holiday apartments, and residential homes. Gunung Brinchang is the origin of the town’s name

Tanah Rata is a town located in Cameron Highlands, Pahang, Malaysia. The name “Tanah rata” means flat ground in Malay and it refers to the relatively flat area on which the town is located amidst this highland region. It has an elevation of 1,440 meters (4,720 ft).

It is the largest town in the Cameron Highlands region and contains many facilities and amenities, including the district council, banks and ATMs, the main Police Station of Cameron Highlands and the main hospital in Cameron Highlands. Having a taxi station and a bus station makes it easy to travel to other parts of Cameron Highlands, as well as to Ipoh and t

BOH Plantations Sdn Bhd (doing business as Boh) is the largest black tea manufacturer in Malaysia, with both domestic and international distribution owned by BOH Plantations Sdn Bhd. The BOH Tea Plantation, which is located at Cameron Highlands, Pahang, Malaysia is also the largest tea plantation in Malaysia.

BOH Plantations was founded in 1929 by J. A. Russell, a British-born British-educated businessman during the British colonial era in Malaya. Russell arrived in Kuala Lumpur at age seven, in 1890; the primary export was then tin. Prior to BOH, Russell had worked in the Straits Trading Company, learning to speak several Chinese dialects (along with Malay) and made contacts with wealthy Chinese tin miners. Besides investing in a tin, Russell and his brothers (Philip, Donald, and Robert) invested in the nascent rubber industry in 1908. J. A. and Philip also invested in railway-related construction, including the new. Kuala Lumpur railway station. In 1913, Russell purchased almost a third of the real estate in the town of Ipoh. He and Donald (a mining engineer from the Colorado School of Mines) founded a colliery at Batu Arang, in Selangor around 25 kilometers from the capital.

Cactus spines are produced from specialized structures called areolas, a kind of highly reduced branch. Areolas are an identifying feature of cacti. As well as spines, areoles give rise to flowers, which are usually tubular and multi-petaled. Many cacti have short growing seasons and long dormancy, and are able to react quickly to any rainfall, helped by an extensive but relatively shallow root system that quickly absorbs any water reaching the ground surface. Cactus stems are often ribbed or fluted, which allows them to expand and contract easily for quick water absorption after rain, followed by long drought periods. Like other succulent plants, most cacti employ a special mechanism called “crassulacean acid metabolism” (CAM) as part of photosynthesis. Transpiration, during which carbon dioxide enters the plant and water escapes, does not take place during the day at the same time as photosynthesis but instead occurs at night. The plant stores the carbon dioxide it takes in as malic acid, retaining it until daylight returns, and only then using it in photosynthesis. Because transpiration takes place during the cooler, more humid night hours, water loss is significantly reduced.

The Highlands are home to two butterfly farms – the Butterfly Garden and the Butterfly Farm. Both play host to a fluttering collection of tropical butterflies, including the well-known and majestic Raja Brooke as well as numerous other insect species.
