Country : Malaysia :: State : Pahang Darul Makmur / Seat : Tanah Rata

 

Area - Total 712 km2 (274.9 sq mi)

Population (2006)

- Total== : 34,800 / - Density : 48.9/km2 (126.6/sq mi)

 

The Cameron Highlands is one of Malaysia’s most extensive hill stations. It covers an area of 712 square kilometers.

To the north, its boundary touches that of Kelantan; to the west, it shares part of its border with Perak.

Situated at the north-western tip of Pahang, the “Camerons” is approximately 85 kilometres from Ipoh or about 200 kilometres from Kuala Lumpur.

 

During the day, the temperature seldom soars above 25°C; at night, it is the opposite: the temperature can sometimes drop to as low as 12°C.[1]

The resort has a diverse population of more than 34,000 people. It comprises Malays, Chinese, Indians and other ethnic groups. The literacy rate here is above 88 per cent.

 

The plateau was first developed by the British in the 1920s. It is made up of three sub-districts, namely Ringlet (5,165 ha), Tanah Rata (2,081 ha) and Ulu Telom (63,981 ha). Of the three, Tanah Rata serves as the administrative centre of the region.

. . .

There are six mountains at the retreat. The highest peak is Mount Batu Brinchang (Malay: Gunung Batu Brinchang). At the top of the 2,031-metre mountain is a radio and television station. Close to it is a 15-metre-high “Observation Tower”. This is the best place to get a good view of the neighbourhood.

 

Much of the Cameron Highlands is under cultivation. There are some 3,642 hectares of forest.[8] Jungle trials lead visitors to scenic spots, waterfalls and aboriginal villages.

 

Most of the tracks here begin at Tanah Rata. There are more than 14 paths to pick and choose from. Depending on its distance, some routes can take as long as five hours to cover.

 

Apart from its walks, the sanctuary is also known for its tea plantations, vegetable farms, orchards, nurseries, insect life, soaring peaks, nature spots, temperate plants, deep ravines, mossy forest, wild animals, serene lakes, golf links, meandering streams, jungle-clad hills, rest houses, places of worship, waterfalls, rolling greens, reptiles, colonial mansions, Land Rovers, migratory birds, animal traps and last but not least, its awe-inspiring natives.

The natives or aborigines are basically jungle dwellers. On the surface, their lifestyle has always been made out to be backward. But this has changed over the years. While many have left to take up residence in the nearby towns, there are still some who prefer to treat the jungle as their home.

Townships/settlements

 

The Cameron Highlands is one of the 11 administrative divisions of Pahang. It comprises three townships and five settlements. The three townships are Ringlet, Tanah Rata and Brinchang.

 

Ringlet is the first town after the turn off at the Tapah Interchange. It is about 12 kilometres from Tanah Rata. It is one of the agricultural hubs of the region.

 

Tanah Rata is the administrative centre of the Cameron Highlands. The general hospital, police station and post office are located at this municipality.

 

Brinchang is four kilometres from Tanah Rata. It is the biggest town of the retreat.

 

The five settlements in the area are the Bertam Valley, Kea Farm, Tringkap, Kuala Terla and Kampung Raja. All are separated from one another by a considerable distance.

 

Bertam Valley is five kilometres from Ringlet. It is involved with the growing of flowers and vegetables.

 

Kea Farm is six kilometres from Tanah Rata. It is the highest village in peninsular Malaysia.

 

Tringkap is seven kilometres from Brinchang. It is close to the tea estates.

 

Kuala Terla is five kilometres from Tringkap. Most of the residents here are farmers.

 

Kampung Raja is the first town after departing the Simpang Pulai Interchange. It is, by and large, a residential area.

 

Access

 

The entryway to the Cameron Highlands is via the Tapah Interchange or the Simpang Pulai Interchange. If you choose the former, exit the North-South Expressway and proceed to the resort via Federal Route 59 . If the latter is more convenient, depart the North-South Expressway and travel by way of the Second East-West Highway . You should reach Kampung Raja in an hour.
