Mossy Forest Hike

The highest elevations of Cameron Highlands remains filled with forested areas and those areas are often referred as mossy forest. Since these high mountains strip moisture from the laden clouds, they are claimed to be cloud forests or mossy forests. For nature photographers and hiking lovers, this is an excellent opportunity to enjoy the nature.

Big Red Strawberry Farm

One notable attraction in Cameron Highlands which is something I must do every time I go is the Big Red Strawberry Farm. The greatest experience for me in the farm is to handpick the fresh strawberries. I must admit – I am that close to become a farmer.
