About this photo
Sun rays touch the lush green hills of the Cameron Highlands in Pahang, Malaysia. The area is named after William Cameron, who discovered the region in 1885. Development began in the 1930s and the region has grown into a prominent hill station, famous for its tea plantations.
The Cameron Highlands have a tropical highland climate, with an average temperature of 18 degrees, a yearly rainfall of 2,700mm and an elevation of 1,471m above sea level. This climate makes it perfect for growing not only tea but also fruits and vegetables.
