Things to See in Cameron Highlands
A unique plant with no leaves, no roots, and no stem. It is perhaps the largest flower and one of the rarest plants in the world. It is and on the verge of extinction. Rafflesia is also one of the world’s most distasteful plants, designed to imitate rotting meat or dung.
The mossy forest have grown naturally at the highest elevations of Cameron Highlands due to perfect condition of mist and moisture. It offers the best view for nature lovers. The best part is that you are able to explore this forest through a boardwalk of 2km ensuring safety and reducing the chance of slipping. However, the drive up to the Mossy Forest before the start of the walk is a challenging one.
Strawberry picking is also another activity available in Cameron Highlands, with a few strawberry farms available. These farms allow you to pick strawberries and if you would like to bring some home, you can later weigh the strawberries at the weighing station on your way out. The farms also sell strawberry-based products like ice cream, cake and candy.
Cameron Bharat Tea Plantations
There are a few tea plantations on the highlands, but the Cameron Bharat Tea Plantation has one of the best views. The great scenery complements the great taste of tea offered at the cafe which is perfect for relaxation. You will also be allowed to walk in between the tea plantation.
There are 3 bee farms in Cameron Highlands. They are located in Ringlet, Brinchang and Tringkap. These farms vary slightly in terms of size and scale of honey production. They produce a range of mouth-watering honey and derivative products such as honeycomb.
Brinchang Night Market
The night market situated in Brinchang sets up from about 3pm until late evening. Selling fresh natural produce and a variety of food at a cheap price, the Brinchang Night Market is a good place to spend the evening. However, being held at an open space, we have to be prepared if it rains.
Located at Tanah Rata, Thompson Falls is a must visit with a spectacular view to enjoy. With market stalls nearby selling souvenirs and local produce making it an excellent visit.
