Peaking at 2,000 meters above sea-level, Cameron Highlands in Pahang resonates with the beauty and coolness of spring season, similar to that of a moderate-climate country.
Roses grow abundantly here, a paradox in this hot and humid country. And just like the flowers, the people of Cameron���������s three main townships; Ringlet, Tanah Rata and Brinchang, beam with a radiant fairness, the effects of basking in pure mountain air each day.
Having such good weather; strawberries, tea and vegetables such as broccoli are grown here, earning it the name ���������Green Bowl of Malaysia��������� as the produce supplies the needs of other states.
Every weekend, city sleepers head to Cameron highlands to enjoy the rejuvenating environment, a break from smog and smoke. It is also affords them the rare opportunity of picking tea leaves, plucking freshly-bloomed strawberries and cashing in on the cheap corn, celery and other greens.
There are plenty of elegant English-styled resorts and even some cosy inns, pretty chalets and comfortable rest houses for accommodation. Located approximately 45 km away from Tapah in Perak state, Cameron Highlands is the perfect getaway for those looking for rest from the rush of urban living.
Fraser���������s Hill was discovered by a Louis James Fraser in the early 19th century, who himself mysteriously disappeared from the hill one day. Originally a coal mine, Fraser���������s Hill has today become one of Malaysia���������s most popular highland destinations. With a cooling countryside and rich natural heritage, Fraser���������s Hill attracts golfers and bird-watchers from across the country. Historical, colonial-styled bungalows still scatter the landscape, many turned into resorts to accommodate guests for the weekend.A sanctuary for over 260 species of local and migratory birds, Fraser���������s Hill is perfect for those who love watching feathered creatures in their element. Annual events include the International Bird Race where participants will try to outdo each other to sight, identify and record as many local species as possible. Some of the birds you can see here include the mountain imperial pigeon, silver-eared mesia, mountain tailorbird, rhinoceros hornbill, long-tailed sibia and chestnut-capped thrush.
There are a few waterfalls that brim with crystal-clear mountain water around the hills of Fraser. Jeriau waterfalls are located about 4 km from the town center, the nearest one. Visitors can also visit Allan���������s Water a former reservoir where you can boat and fish. Another 15 km away from Fraser���������s Hill is the Telaga Waterfall, a bigger, more scenic area to picnic.
