Malaysia — Hill Top Travel and Tour, Cameron Highlands, Malaysia

Taking a tour of the Cameron Highlands

August 2015

When I was in the Cameron Highlands, I decided to do something a little different (for me) — take a guided tour of the area.

The company I picked was Hill Top Travel and Tour — which now seems to have gone out of business as it no longer has a website.

The company offered nine tours, and the one I decided to go with was the 'Rafflesia and Mossy Forest Adventure’, which included:

  • Travel by 4×4 off-road drive vehicle
  • Visit an Orang Asli Settlement Visit
  • Blowpipe hunting demonstration
  • Jungle Trekking for 2–3 hours
  • Rafflesia — The world’s biggest flower (seasonal)
  • Visit the Boh Tea plantation and factory
  • A drive to the top of Gunung Brinchang (6,666 feet — ca. 2 km)

I picked the tour because of the visit to the BOH Tea plantation (BOH was my daily tea in Malaysia) and the chance to see a Rafflesia.
