Meet a driver at your hotel, then board a climate-controlled vehicle for the 124-mile (200-km) trip to the Cameron Highlands. The 3-hour drive passes through a scenic forest on the way to the higher-elevation terrain of the Cameron Highlands, which were a popular summer escape throughout the British colonial period.
You’ll find a landscape of rolling tea plantations, farms, and fields, with time to explore the area at your own pace. A classic itinerary in the Cameron Highlands includes a stop at one of the area’s fruit and vegetable markets to see produce fresh from the fields and picking ripe strawberries at a local farm.
Head to Cameron Bharat Tea Estate to learn how tea is grown, with a tour of the onsite tea factory. Get a glimpse of a bygone era at the Time Tunnel Museum, stocked with historic memorabilia and trinkets, then visit a butterfly and insect garden that’s an ideal choice for families.
Other favourite destinations you can add to the itinerary include Cactus Point, Cactus Valley, and Lata Iskandar, a waterfall surrounded by dense vegetation. At the end of your day in the Cameron Highlands, begin the return trip to Kuala Lumpur, where this 12-hour tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
