Tea Plantation in Cameron Highland, Pahang

Cool climate in the heart of tropic

No trip to Cameron Highlands is complete without a trip to the tea plantations.
This is one of the main attraction that's got to be in your "must see" list.
You can visit the factories to learn about the tea making process and you can also sit down and enjoy a cup of tea at the cafe. The view overlooking the plantations is beautiful and perfect for the picture album.
The 3 most famous tea plantations are :
- Boh Tea Plantation
- Sungai Palas Tea Plantation
- Cameron Valley Tea Plantation
Boh Tea Plantations

BOH Plantations Sdn Bhd is the leading tea grower in Malaysia with four tea gardens – Boh, Sungei Palas and Fairlie situated in Cameron Highlands;
and Bukit Cheeding in Selangor – constituting a total land area of 1200 hectares. With a production capacity approaching 3000kgs per hectare,
the Company produces 4 million kgs of tea annually which translates to about 5.5 million cups per day.
This represents about 70% of all tea produced in Malaysia.

Sungai Palas Tea Estate

This is another tea plantation owned by Boh and it is located further up north from the mail plantation. A definite must on the list of things to do in Cameron Highlands is a visit to the new Sungei Palas Tea Centre. Recently opened by BOH Plantations at the Sungei Palas tea garden, it is just above Brinchang, in the very heart of the Cameron Highlands tea country.
Located on a hilltop, amidst rows of tea bushes and close to Gunung Brinchang, it offers the best possible introduction to Malaysian teas in a truly spectacular setting.

Cameron Valley Tea Plantation

Located along the main road from Ringlet to Tanah Rata this is a good spot where you can stop and enjoy a scenic view of a tea plantation. There is ample parking here along the road and there is also a small tea shop where you can enjoy a cuppa.
This is also a great spot for taking photos.
