Cameron Highlands is still a cool hill station
The size of Singapore, Cameron Highlands occupies an area of 712 square kilometres (275 sq mi) in the Titiwangsa Mountains.
Many think that the "Camerons" is no longer cool or rather not as cool in temperature as it used to be before rampant development took place in the last few years.
Still, the temperatures there are still much cooler than in Kuala Lumpur, for instance. The mean annual temperature of the resort is about 18 °C (64 °F). During the day, the temperature seldom rises above 25 °C (77 °F); at night, it can rarely drop to as low as 9 °C (48 °F), at the higher areas though it would be comfortable to have a heated blanket, I should think or at least a hot water bottle for the night...

Went on a day trip once. Hope to go again...and stay a couple of days next time.ReplyDelete
Good idea to stay longer to enjoy the place. There is a good variety of accommodations if one has the time to look.Delete
Whoa long time did not go *golden horse mountain* think about a two decades ago.ReplyDelete
I wish the place is nearer. Unlike the one-hour drive to Genting Highlands, Cameron Highlands would take us some three hours from KL?.Delete
I love Cameron too...the old cameron. Now getting too commercialisedReplyDelete
Yeah, that's what I hear. Still, I believe the cooler temperature and the various sights are still worth going up there.Delete

Camerons consists of a few districts so that should explain. Enough room for some wandering around..Delete
