The Cameron Highlands is one of Malaysia’s most extensive hill stations. It covers an area of 712 square kilometres. To the north, its boundary touches that of Kelantan; to the west, it shares part of its border with Ipoh. Situated at the north-western tip of Pahang, the “Camerons” is approximately 121 km east of Ipoh or about 214 km north of Kuala Lumpur.
