Located 1,500 m above sea level, the cool temperature and undulating slopes of the Cameron Highland provide perfect conditions for growing strawberries and tea. Today, the hills are covered with iconic tea plantations. The beautifully manicured tea plantations look like a carpet that stretches for miles and miles into the distance.

Much of Malaysia’s fresh vegetables and flowers are grown in the highland and trucked down every morning to the cities. In the 19th century, the Cameron Highland was a popular spot for British colonialists to retreat to escape the heat and humidity of the lowlands. Much of the character remains and the colonial ambience and English charm can still be seen in the architecture.

The highland is also made famous by the mysterious disappearance of the legendary Jim Thompson after he went for a jungle walk. Also known as the Silk King, Jim Thompson revitalised a cottage industry of hand-woven silk, which had for centuries been a household craft in Thailand but was dying out. Jim Thompson silk is famous all over the world today.

To complete your English experience, do take some time to enjoy the popular English high tea with scones, cream and locally-grown strawberries in the highland. At the Ye Old Smokehouse Hotel & Restaurant (Tanah Rata), Cameron Highlands Resort (Tanah Rata) or The Lakehouse (Ringlet, 45 minutes away from Tanah Rata) you can enjoy your English high tea in or overlooking landscaped English gardens.

The Belum Rainforest is one of the last rainforest frontiers in Asia. Some scientists believe that the forests may be the ‘elixir of life’ with their abundance of medicinal herbs and plants. These have been collected and used by the native Orang Asli people for generations. The native people use the plants as remedies for all types of ailments and even love potions can be found here arranged – just add a dash of ‘cenuai’ to complete the potion!

The primary forests are punctuated by huge and rare rainforest hardwoods believed to be as old as 500-600 years. They are also home to some of the world’s most endangered mammals. You will find many streams and waterfalls with cool crystal clear waters amidst this vast expanse of forest.
