As a destination on alaysia vacations, the Cameron Highlands, situated in the centre of Peninsular Malaysia, are a series of hill stations at altitudes ranging from 1500 to 1800m (4920 to 5904ft).

Located 200kms north of Kuala Lumpur, the Cameron Highlands covers a span of 712 sq. kms and features Malaysia’s highest point above sea level (5000ft), accessible by road.

The Cameron Highlands is named after William Cameron, a British surveyor, who, in 1885 was commissioned by the colonial government of the time to map out the. Initially planned as a development for a sanatorium, health spa, and farmland, it was finally developed as a hill station forty years later by Sir George Maxwell, as a development committee was formed in 1925, and road construction began from Tapah to the Highlands.

Given its fertile soil and cool climate, both British and locals settled on the slopes of the mountains, as the road construction was completed in 1931. They were soon joined by tea planters and vegetable growers. By the mid-1930s, the Cameron Highlands featured a nine-hole golf course, several cottages, three inns, a police post, two boarding schools, a dairy, nurseries, vegetable farms, tea estates, a Government Rest House and an Experimental Agricultural Station.

Today, attractions on a Malaysia tour in the Cameron Highlands include jungle walks, waterfalls, tours of tea plantations, beautiful gardens, and plenty of wild flowers. Featuring a glimmer of its colonial heritage, the Cameron Highlands is an ideal spot for rest and relaxation.
