C is for Cameron Highlands.
Cameron Highlands or commonly referred to as 'Camerons', is one of two hill stations developed from the British colonial times which still stands today. I'll let Wikipedia take over..
'The Cameron Highlands were named after William Cameron, a British explorer and geologist  who was commissioned by the then colonial government to map out the Pahang-Perak border area in 1885.
In a statement concerning his mapping expedition, Cameron mentioned he saw “a sort of vortex on the mountains, while for a (reasonably) wide area we have gentle slopes and plateau land.”
When approached, Sir Hugh Low, the Resident of Perak (1887–1889), expressed the wish of developing the region into a "sanatorium, health resort and open farmland”. A narrow path to “Cameron’s Land” was then carved through the jungle. Nothing much happened after that.
Forty years later, the tableland was given another review when Sir George Maxwell (1871–1959) visited the locale to see if it could be turned into a resort. He spent about nine days surveying the territory. On his return from the highlands, Maxwell described the terrain as being “somewhat oval in shape.” After comparing it with Nuwara Eliya in Sri Lanka and Baguio in the Philippines, he decreed that the site should be developed into a hill station.'

I hope to get there some day. Kuala Lampur has been on my list for years. And now I live in Vietnam, so it is much closer and more likely I'll actually get to see it.ReplyDelete
