Cooling off in the Cameron Highlands - Pahang, Malaysia; Southeast Asia


I left the smog and the humidity of Kuala Lumpur for the beauty and cool weather of the Cameron Highlands. This area is Malaysia’s largest tea-producing region. The highlands possess all the right attributes for growing tea - moderate temperatures, high altitude, abundant rainfall, long hours of sunshine and well-drained soil.

A former British hill station, the Cameron Highlands are located 136 miles (219 km) north of Kuala Lumpur in Pahang, Malaysia. It’s a 2 1/2 hour bus trip from Kuala Lumpur along a very windy, but scenic road.

The rolling hills of the Cameron Highland's tea plantations are lush and tranquil in the extreme. This place has rejuvenated my love for landscape photography.

Famous for their black tea production, this is a scenic view of the BOH Tea Plantation. The overcast weather provided the perfect diffused light which resulted in giving the colors that added pop (okay Photoshop had something to do with it too, but most of it was mother nature).

Stay tuned for more of my adventures in Southeast Asia.

Happy Travels!
