You can’t beat the weather up here. A few days out of the sweltering lowland heat will surely recharge your batteries.One other popular activity in Cameron Highlands, actually more of a tradition, is to have tea and scones. This very English tradition dates back to the days when English colonial officers used this hilly location as a cool getaway from the heat of the lowlands. Bird-watching and trekking are also popular activities here.Situated 1,500 metres above sea level, Cameron Highlands comprises a series of little townships that include Ringlet, Tanah Rata, Brinchang, Tringkap, Kuala Terla and Kampung Raja.

The forests of the high mountains of Cameron Highlands are able to strip moisture from the clouds, hence referred to as ‘cloud-forests’ or ‘mossy-forests’. Malaysia: This is the second part of the Cameron Highlands story: climbing Mount Brinchang and exploring the Mossy Forest.

The sunrise at Gunung Brinchang – Malaysia,the highest peak of Cameron Highland. The height is 2032 metres. The radiance of the rising sun is glorious. Leaving your shoes on in Thailand is generally not a good idea when going into certain places. Feet=bad. Got it. So I leave my Solomon, basically perfect hiking/trekking shoes outside that my brother bought me. Feel like Cameron Highlands Malaysia is a pretty safe area. Wake up in the morning, actually cold because of the altitude, which was sort of a nice feeling, for about 1 min, woke up, had my iPod, some fruit, my jacket, all ready to tackle the day. You. Guessed. It. No more shoes. Wasn’t a happy camper, asked the guy at the desk if this was common, he said it was his first time hearing about anyone losing their shoes.
