The Highlands were named after William Cameron, a British colonial government surveyor who discovered the plateau during a mapping expedition in 1885. The fame of Cameron Highlands then grew during the colonial era when British planters realised the potential of its fertile mountain slopes for growing tea, then a prized commodity.
The Cameron Highlands are still home to many tea plantations, being Malaysia's largest tea-producing region.
We went on some tours of the area which included: two tea plantations, butterfly and bee farm, stawberry farm and flower plantation. It was like being in England, each day we had tea and scones!.
