Cameron Highlands day trip from Kuala Lumpur will bring tourist to the coolest and refreshing highlands station in Malaysia. Found by William Cameron in 1885 by accident while conducting research and mapping expeditions with a local guide called Kulup Riau in the Titiwangsa range. The primary purpose of the research is to look for areas for plantation as the number of residents in Kuala Lumpur increases by the influx of immigrants from China and India. Situated within 1300 to 1500 meter from sea level, Cameron Highlands provided mild climax suitable for vegetation such as Tea and Strawberry.

Special Notes for Tour on Weekend and Public Holiday
First of all, the success of the tour on the weekend entirely depends on passenger cooperation. We can a very smooth journey or stuck several hours in traffic jams. On the weekend or public holiday, I will divide the itinerary into two categories. The primary objective is visiting the primary site of Sungai Palas BOH Tea Plantation and Factory. Secondary itinerary touring other attractions.
Sungai Palas BOH Tea Plantation and Factory
BOH has three plantations and factory in Cameron Highlands. All three Tea estate situated in a separate location known as Fairie, Habu and Sungai Palas Tea. Due to traffic congested on the weekend, most of the Taxi driver or tour agency from Kuala Lumpur bring their passenger to Habu BOH Tea Plantation. Habu BOH Tea Plantation situated at a lower part of Cameron Highlands the scenery not as good as Sungai Palas BOH Tea. I will make sure my passenger will visit Sungai Palas BOH Tea Plantation.
Why Sungai Palas Tea Estate so important?
- First, the view in Sungai Palas is more beautiful compared to the others two plantations.
- Second, the Tea factory in Sungai Palas still using the old machine since the plant opened in 1935. Tea processed in here is much accessible to understandable compared to others factory.
Bharat Tea Plantation
The first Tea plantation we visit during one day trip Cameron Highlands is Bharat Tea Plantation. Shuparshad Bansal Agarwal established it in 1933. He was born in Uttar Pradesh, North India. In the beginning, the Tea produced by Bharat group its sold in bulk to other Tea company. In 1994, Bharat group decided to enter Tea consumer market using a brand Cameron Valley Tea. Bharat Tea not providing any Tea factory tour. We stop here for photoshoot and toilet stop only.
Established by Mr. Tan in 1989, Butterflies Garden belongs to Tan family is the biggest in Cameron Highlands. Besides butterflies tourist also had an opportunity to see others insects such as Stick Insect, Leaf insect, Scorpions and reptile.
Entrance: Adult RM7 /Child: RM4.00
Pick Your Own Strawberry
Cameron Highlands also well knew the main supplier Strawberry in Malaysia. Low temperatures of 10 to 25 degrees Celsius, with a height of more than 1500 meters make the place suitable for the cultivation of strawberries. The farmers using greenhouse and hydroponic system method to produce Strawberry.
Entrance: RM30 for half kilo
At the moment I can not bring my passengers to visit Mossy Forest and Berinchang Mountain because of the bad road condition. Perforated roads can cause severe damage to my taxi. Any damage will cause us to stranded Cameron Highlands.
My Cameron Highlands day trip itinerary is also covering Mossy Forest. No many Taxi driver and tour operator willing to bring their customer to here. Mossy forest situated about 2000 meter from sea level. The best place to enjoy fresh and crisp air produce by Titiwangsa mountain. Enjoy original sounds from the jungle and birds.
Visiting Mossy Forest, it’s not a jungle trekking. To go there, we have to use the road that not well maintains with lots of potholes. For safety reason will not be able to go there during severe weather/ thunder storm.
Established by Mr. Kok to show his lifetime collection, Time tunnel the best place for tourist to learn about Cameron Highlands and Malaysia history. Currently, Time Tunnel have about 3000 old item from Photo, Toys, Vinyl and Kitchen Tools.
Entrance: Adult RM 7 / Child RM5.
Cameron Highlands day trip allows the tourist to get know with Malaysia indigenous people. In Malaysia, Orang Asli or indigenous peoples are peoples with unique languages, knowledge systems, and beliefs. Peninsula Malaysia has about 18 sub-ethnic aboriginal people. Indigenous people has its language, culture and perceives itself as different from the others. They are the earlier population migrated from China and Tibet about 5000 years ago.
