We (Me & My wife) were here for 3 days and we still choose this place as a weekend destination from busy city.  

Day 1

We took a bus from Puduraya Busstand in KL to Cameron Bus stand at 5 PM, ticket Fare - 35 RM and reached Cameron by 8 PM.  Whoever visiting to Cameron, I prefer to stay at Tanah Rata where you get good transport and food.

Day 2

Started with visiting Strawberry Farms.

Venturing below the boardwalk to step on the forest floor, you will soon discover its moist peat-like texture, each step leaving deep water-filled imprints on the soil.

A beautiful walk among the clouds. Great pathway to walk and be safe. Natural beauty at its best. Gives you a sense of calm and peace in your mind after a walk through the forest.

You can reach the top point of the Mossy Forest, which is 6561 Ft above the sea level, the path is really good and you have the wooden step way to climb that height.

Next journey begins with 45 minutes drive to the Jungle trek starting point and almost one and half to two hours of trekking through lowland Rainforest to see the Giant Rafflesia Of Cameron.  Safest way to do trek is with the local guide.

Giant Rafflesia Of Cameron -  One of the largest flowers in the world in all its natural glory right here in Cameron Highlands.

You can get very sweet Bamboo water, which will be formed naturally in Bamboo sticks,  like Coconut water.
