    At your service.....Strawberry Part has a tour & activities department to ensure that you have an exciting tour with us.


    Adventure and Eco Tours

    Countryside Tour


    Since the discovery of the Cameron Highlands by William Cameron in 1885, the highlands have not only been transformed into a farming land and a retreat for the wealthy Chinese businessman but have also be
    come the most popular destination for local and foreign holiday makers alike.

    In 1929, John Archibald Russell a Scottish was the first person to be granted a piece of land to cultivate tea in this region. Today, his company Boh Plantations is the biggest tea grower in Malaysia.

    This half-day tour will take you to one of his tea plantations to watch the processing of black tea and later to sample various kinds of tea in the tea house. After the tea break, we will visit our local fruit and vegetable market, an apiary farm, Butterfly garden, Chinese Buddhist temple, Cactus and Flower gardens and lastly a Strawberry farm.


    Hill Forest Walk

    Malaysia’s highland forests offer some of the most breathtaking scenery and diverse flora and fauna in Malaysia. Our highland forests are a treasure trove of vibrantly colourful birds, delicate orchids, ferns, palms, mosses, fungi, wild ginger plants and cool, lush mountain peaks. But they are more than just a pretty picture- they perform essential ecological functions that keep our environment healthy and clean.

    Cameron Highlands is blessed with many trails dotted around the highlands. Some are for soft core and some for hard core trekkers. Even though there are some easy trails that you can walk on your own, it is always advisable to engage a local guide.

    This short guided walk from Arcadia bungalow to Mardi station in Tanah Rata will enable you to explore the differences between our hill and lowland forests.

    Mossy Forest Walk

    Mosses and liverworts are commonly regarded as useless. Although they do not have direct economic value, they are important in many other respects. They play an important role for the water balance of ecosystems in the forests and bogs by storing large amounts of water. In tropical montane rainforests they function as huge reservoirs, supplying water to the streams and rivers in a balanced manner throughout the year. Mosses and liverworts do not only store water like a sponge but also prevents erosion by fixing the uppermost layer of soil, especially in steep slopes. Just like every organism, mosses and liverworts have certain functions in the ecosystems such as providing micro-habitats for small animals, germination of seeds or food for certain beetles.

    This 2 hours walk to Gunung Brinchang at 6,666ft. above sea level will allow you to discover how the mossy forest plays its part in providing us with the water upon which we depend on water that is clean and mountain fresh. The return journey will take us through carpets of manicured tea bushes where some of the best black tea is produced. After a guided tour to the processing factory, refreshments will be served at the Boh tea house.

    Asli Village Tour

    Cameron Highlands are known for the high population of natives still living in the forests. In the early sixties, some of them have been re-settled by the government to the new area of their choice. To improve their standard of living, the government has not only supplied their settlement with water and electricity but also helped them to find jobs in the government and private sectors.

    Unfortunately, there are still a number of them who do not wish to be re-settled because they do not want to trade in their peace and quiet for the hustle and bustle of bigger towns or developed areas.

    This 4x4 tour will take you to some of these settlements where some inhabitants who seek job opportunities in the towns or farms but still prefer to live in harmony with their natural environment.

    Surrounding Towns

    Tanah Rata

    This is the administrative town of Cameron Highlands where most Government Departments are located. There are mosque, Hindu and Chinese temples, a small local museum, children's playground, bus/taxi station, gerai-gerai, sundry and retail shops, market and budget hotels.

    Brinchang

    The second largest town in Cameron Highlands comprising mostly sundry/retail shops, budget hotels, ‘gerai-gerai’ or stalls and a wet market.



    Other Town/Villages

    If you have transport, drive further up after Brinchang, you will arrive at a number of villages namely Tringkap, Kuala Terla and the last village, Kampung Raja being the end of the road. It takes about 40 minutes. (Follow the Signboard).


    Kampung Attap Walk

    Tropical rainforests represent the oldest major vegetation type still present on the terrestrial Earth. Like all vegetation, however, that of the rainforest continues to evolve and change so that modern tropical rainforests are not identical with rainforests of the geologic past.

    It is not surprise, therefore, to find the greatest diversity of flowering plants today in the tropical rainforests where they first evolved. Of particular interest is the fact that the majority of flowering plants displaying the most primitive characteristics are found in rainforests - especially tropical rainforests.

    This two days walk through one of the oldest rainforest in the world will give you the insight of the fragility and the beauty of our virgin forest.


    Rafflesia The Tour

    The Rafflesia is one of the most magnificent flowers ever known to the botanical world. In size it excels by spanning 97 cm in diameter, the largest ever recorded from a flower of the species Rafflesiaarnoldii, found by Sir Stamford Raffles and Dr. Arnold during a plant collecting expedition to Sumatra in 1818. Their specimen was sent to the British Museum (Natural History) in London where it caused much wonder and amazement.

    The uniqueness of Rafflesia lies not just in its size and appearance. Its peculiar parasitic life style, which means that it is totally dependent on a host-in this case, a vine-for survival is equally interesting. Biologically, Rafflesia is so specialized that the only visible part is the flower. It has neither roots, leaves nor stem - nothing is green.

    This tour will take you to the few remaining sites where this parasitic plant can still be found.


    Gunung Brinchang Tour

    Gunung Brinchang at 6,666ft. above sea level is the highest peak in Cameron Highlands. Translated into English, the Malay word "Gunung" means mountain and "Brinchang" means strong winds. With the temperature sometimes recording less than 15 degrees Centigrade during the night, this mountain is a home to numerous species of mosses, pitcher plants, wild orchids and flowers. It is also a showpiece of what mossy forest is all about.

    The ride to the top by 4x4 and the view from the lookout point will allow you to enjoy and appreciate the panoramic view of our montane forests. After a short walk to the mossy forest we will proceed to visit the highest tea plantation in Malaysia.

    Refreshments will be serve at the tea house after a short tour to the orthodox tea factory which was set up in the early 1930s.

    Golf


    There is an 18 hole public Golf Course which is just 5 minutes from the resort.

    Location

    The Drive up to Strawberry Park

    Heading out of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s capital city, it takes about one-and-a-half hours to reach Tapah, a small rustic town in the west coast state of Perak. From there, you take route 59 into the highlands. The drive along meandering slopes curves in and out of the mountain range, reminding the traveller of the majesty of the tropical rainforest. It is time to roll down the windows and take in the fresh air. It is also an interesting border crossing experience as once you drive pass Ringlet, you cross into Pahang, Peninsular Malaysia's largest state. Alternatively, the highland is accessible using the new Ipoh highway called Simpang Pulai Highway. The drive from Ipoh to Cameron Highlands takes around one hour.
