Cameron Highlands is one of Malaysia’s most extensive hill stations – the size of Singapore, it occupies an area of 712 square kilometres.
The Highlands were named after William Cameron, a British colonial government surveyor who discovered the plateau during a mapping expedition in 1885. The fame of Cameron Highlands then grew during the colonial era when British planters realised the potential of its fertile mountain slopes for growing tea, then a prized commodity. The Cameron Highlands are still home to many tea plantations, being Malaysia’s largest tea-producing region. The area is also known as a major supplier of legumes and vegetables to both Malaysia and Singapore with its many farms and is one of Malaysia’s prime tourist destinations.
The annual mean temperature of the retreat is about 18 °C (64 °F). During the day, the temperature rarely rises above 25 °C (77 °F) and at night, it rarely drops to as low as 9 °C (48 °F) at the higher reaches.
Copthorne Hotel Cameron Highlands or previously known as Equatorial Hotel Cameron Highlands is a four-star hotel located in the hills north of Kuala Lumpur.
