Visit Malaysia- Cameron Highlands, Pahang

Cameron Highlands is Malaysia's largest hill resort. Standing at an elevation of 1524 above sea level. The highland has a consistent cool climate throughout the year. It was first discovered by William Cameron in 1885 by a British government surveyor during a mapping expedition on the Titiwangsa Range (Perak/Pahang border).

Failing to mark the discovery during the expedition, the location of the plateau was confirmed by Sir Hugh Low during the subsequent expedition. Si r Hugh Low suggested that this would be an ideal location for a retreat and farmland. A narrow path to the highland was then cut through the jungles of the highlands.
Since then, the plateau remained untouched until 1920s when the narrow bridle path leading up to the mountain was improved.

In 1925, Sir George Maxwell visited the mountain and eventually led the development of the hill station now known as CAMERON HIGHLANDS.
