Cameron Highlands is nestled high in the lush mountains of Malaysia, this enchanting destination invites you to escape to a world of cool, misty landscapes, vibrant tea plantations, and unforgettable adventures. It's a destination that appeals to a favorite of many travelers! It is a paradise for nature lovers: the region is home to beautiful rolling hills, dense forests, and a wide range of flora and fauna. The area is famous for its tea plantations, and a visit to a tea estate like the Cameron Lavender Garden or the Boh Tea Plantation is a must. We can organize private, guided tours to learn about the tea-making process and enjoy freshly brewed tea while taking in panoramic views of the plantations. Since it is located at a higher elevation, Cameron Highlands offers a refreshing break from the heat and humidity of lowland Malaysia. For those, who are looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, you can get the chance to find the world’s largest flower, the rafflesia on a couple hours hike. We recommend spending one or two nights in Cameron Highlands before heading to Penang.
