Cameron Highlands - A cool and tranquil place of Malaysia.

A group of fourteen from Miri photography society went to attent KL photography festival 29th-31st October 2010. I am not a keen photographer for natures and scenery and I joined them just for the fun of it and see what I can learn from it. Ya, it really nice to go places and people you have never been and see. We left KL on the 31st to Cameron by bus from bukit Jalil. Judy my daughter drove me from KL to Jalil to meet my team. Having arrived at bukit Jalil early, Judy thought we could go around and come back. She made the wrong turn going into the expressway back on the lane to KL again. Almost missed the trip but they asked the bus to wait for me before moving and there was a delay of ten minuites.
Cameron highlands is a cool, mountainous plateaus and valleys with interwinding narrow road tracks going through the santuary with vast tea plantation owned by BOH(the big one), vegetables farms, nuseries and orchards.Many cities and major towns dwellers drive there just to get away from the heat in the lowland and the hasty lives. It is advised never to come on weekends and public holidays as the narrow track will be jammed with traffics for hours.
According to Wikipedia, the Cameron Highlands is one of malaysia most extensive hill stations. It cover an area of 712 square kilometres. It got its name from William Cameron, a British serveyor who was commisioned by the colonial government to map out the area in 1885.
Down below the valley, can see a cottage's driveway light still on while over the horizon we stand above waiting for the light to come up. 
This is the tropical rain forest reserve in Cameron park. It was wet and with intermittent rain shower when we arrived at this reserve. As its cool and wet weather in this forest reserve, moss can be seen growing on rocks, older tree trunks and grounds with big roots covered with fallen leaves and overgrown making the ground soft and risking trekkers foot stepping into a hollow ground hurting themselves if not careful.
  Looking out from my three stars hotel's room as night set in, this is Brinchang town and it is the biggest town of the retreat.

Very sublime shots!! Haven't been there for a long time.

The Sarawak students went there for a holiday tour because most of us could not afford to go home. And many of us met our future spouses during the trip!! Loneliness or the scents of the flowers or the mist on the hills? Kekekeke!!
