Cameron Highlands is like Darjeeling of Malaysia but just beautiful like it :) Really great mountain place with tea estates, we stayed at Copthorne Hotel which is very famous for it's view of the valley. The hotel was overall good like a rating of 3.5 what we found odd was hotels in Malaysia were not that great maintained in terms of any re-work or if the paint was peeling. The rooms gave a feeling that they were quite old. At Cameron we visited Boh tea plantations where you can enjoy the lush green terraces and learn how the tea is harvested and grown. There is also a delightful tea shop here where you can sample some of the signature brews for yourself and also pick up a few packets as a souvenir of your trip here.
After spending 2days in Genting we moved to our next destination - Cameron Highlands. From one cold and commercial place to another cold but peaceful mountains place filled with Tea fields, Strawberry farms and Mossy forest.
For our second day, we had booked an early tour of Cameron Highland which included a walk in the Mossy Forest, visit to a Strawberry Farm, visit to Boh Tea Plantation, visit to a local tea farm, climbing mount brinchang, and exploring the rose garden.The entire tour was of 6-7 hours and cost around 750 INR per person. So, we started early around 7 a.m. and covered all the mentioned points.
We had booked a bus to Cameron Highland for the next morning for 700 INR. They picked us up from our hostel and we reached Cameron Highland in the afternoon, by 2-3 p.m.Since it was late, we couldn't take the Cameron highland tour that day but we booked one for the next day. On our first day here, we simply roamed around the hill station and walked as far as possible.
