|the tea valley|
The Highlands were named after William Cameron, a British colonial government surveyor who discovered the plateau during a mapping expedition in 1885. The fame of Cameron Highlands then grew during the colonial era when British planters realised the potential of its fertile mountain slopes for growing tea, then a prized commodity. Cameron Highlands is still home to many tea plantations, being Malaysia's largest tea-producing region. With its many farms the area is also known as a major supplier of fruits and vegetables to both Malaysia and Singapore, and is one of Malaysia's prime tourist destinations.
This is my favourite place..located at Pahang.The view is superb..with a valley,green tea maze,mist and the cool breeze.To get there,drive through a Simpang Pulai exit of PLUS highway North-South,also can be reach by exit from Tapah but drive is quite tough.Cameron Highlands last time was the most cooloset highland in
Malaysia but recently due to change climate,world heat..seem unable to sustain the title.Still,worth for nature seekers and greeny view.
I been here on September 2010..to pick up some strawberry and to spent my vacation before return Penang from Malacca.Scenic view and fresh air waits all the stoppers then.
