flowers that have the power to heal but also about the whole ethos of
living harmoniously with nature.

Cameron Highlands Resort is located in the
state of Pahang, approximately 200 km north of Kuala Lumpur on the east
side of the border between the states of Perak and Pahang in Malaysia.
At about 1,500 metres above sea level, it is the highest area on the
mainland stretching along a plateau set high above the river valley and
enjoys a cool climate and fresh air. Temperatures fluctuate between 22°
and 25° Celsius during the day and between 15° and 22° Celsius at night.
Highlands was named after William Cameron, a British Government surveyor
who discovered it in 1885 whilst on a mapping expedition. However, he
failed to mark his discovery and it was not until 1925 that Sir George
Maxwell recorded Cameron’s discovery and decided to develop it as a hill
of Cameron Highlands grew during the colonial era. British colonials
were attracted to this cool hill station, its climate tailor-made for
nostalgic reconstructions of English cottages, narrow village lanes,
invigorating hikes through the countryside, rounds of golf and afternoon
teas of scones and locally produced strawberry jam.
expatriates would frequent the highlands to relax and escape the lowland
tropical heat, and British planters soon realised the potential of its
fertile mountain slopes for growing tea, then a prized commodity.
Cameron Highlands is still home to many tea plantations, as well as
strawberry and vegetable farms, jungle trails, cascading waterfalls and
rose gardens. Much of the highlands' character remains unchanged,
exuding an old English charm.
