LOCATION:
Cameron Highlands (or Tanah Tinggi Cameron in Malay) is located in the state of Pahang. Currently, there are two main roads that connect major towns in west coast of Peninsula Malaysia (such as Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh and Penang) to this popular highland resort town. The older access point is the Tapah - Ringlet route while the newer access has since been built from Simpang Pulai - Kg Raja.

This plantation is accessible from a small road turn a few kilometres north of Brinchang town. To be exact, as you head north, Kea's Farm to your right should be a good landmark to indicate that a left-turn is eminent. Basically, just follow the signboard to the Boh Tea Centre and Sg Palas Tea Valley until you get to a left-hand turn into Gunung Brinchang. The journey from Sungai Palas to Mt Brinchang will pass through this tea plantation.

DESCRIPTION:
I have been searching all over the internet and local maps to find the actual name of this tea plantation. Most likely it is just an extended area of the well-known Sg Palas Tea Plantation (which I wrote on a separate article).

The reason I wanted to feature this tea plantation on a separate article is because of the fabulous view, which I feel is a tad better than the proper Boh Tea Plantation as well as the Bharat Cameron Valley Plantation. The plantation area is mainly accessible by cars or motorcycles only, although you may be able to walk from the Sg Palas - Mt Brinchang junction for a few kilometres to enjoy the scenic atmosphere.

Both times I was passing through the tea valley en route to Gunung Brinchang. In both times, I was fascinated by the view of majestic rolling hills, occasionally covered in morning or afternoon mists. Perfect for photography, with not a single souls around, except with occasional passing vehicles transporting workers up and down the valley. There are various points to view the spectacular sceneries, and honestly, I could not name any specific "photography spot" along the way. Just find any nice scenic overlooks, stop your car by the roadside, and pull the trigger (your camera shutter, that is).

MY VERDICT:
A nice and secluded tea plantation area. The road access should be improved a little bit though. Fantastic views.
