Enjoy an adventure of a lifetime as you visit an unique region with tea plantations, waterfalls, farmland, places of worships and native tribal villages. The day begins early after breakfast as you are whisked away to Cameron Highlands. A hill resort in the state of Pahang, it sits at 1,500 meters above sea level with temperatures from 10-15 degrees Celsius. It was discovered by Sir William Cameron. The population consists of 40,000 entrepreneurs, farm workers, service industry workers and government servants. It has orchards, nurseries, rivers, lakes, wildlife, mossy forests, golf courses and bungalows. The Orang Asli are the native people of this land. There are 18 various tribes.
For a beautiful scene, we will stop at Cascading Waterfall. The water cascades into a narrow stream good for a dip. Nearby, the shops sell souvenirs, tribal handicrafts, strange herbs, fruits and aphrodisiacs. Oh dear!
You will gain insight of the local tribes lifestyles as we visit an Aborigine Village. These jungle dwellers still treat the jungle as their supermarket for their necessities. A blowpipe demonstration awaits!
After lunch, a special place to visit is the Butterfly Farm. It is a secret paradise where 5,000 butterflies and insects call home. The Butterflies dance on ferns and scented flowers. The landscaped gardens, exotic plants and fresh-water turtles are a sight to see.
A stroll on a Strawberry Farm and through the local vegetable and fruit market will showcase the labor of the farmers. There are also cactus and flower gardens with a wide range of cacti in various shapes and sizes. These grow along with beautiful flowers in the Camerons due to the conducive weather.
As prearranged, you have the choice of returning to Kuala Lumpur or staying the night in a local luxury hotel. If the latter is chosen, you will be treated to one of the regions signature dishes, the Hot Pot.
After breakfast, we will check out a local tea plantation. This particular plantation works closely with the World Wildlife Fund and Malaysian Nature Society. They are focused on the conservation of the elephant and the orangutan. Have a cup of tea fresh from the plantation as you savor the vast green carpet of forest.
Enjoy a lunch at a local restaurant before returning to Kuala Lumpur.
