Cameron Highlands, 1,524 metres above sea level, enjoys a cool climate with temperatures ranging from 10ºC to 20ºC. The scenic and lush road up to Cameron Highlands is dotted with fruit, flower and vegetable farms. While vendors, souvenir and handicraft stalls, and the Orang Asli settlement add to the enchantment, this picturesque setting is completed by flourishing tea plantations which blanket the undulating hills. Equatorial Cameron Highlands is nestled atop a hill at 1,628 metres above sea level.
