CAMERON HIGHLANDS COMPANY TRIP




Cameron Highlands is a nice trip organized by the company to visit. The 2 days 1 night trip there is very great. A bus up to Cameron is taking about 3 hours trip. The first day, we visited the place where teas are made.



The place is very nice and very cooling. It is very nice to enjoy tea here as well as enjoying the cooling place and nice view here.

The correct name for this tea centre is Cameron Valley Tea Plantations but it is often known as Bharat Tea Plantation as it is owned and operated by the Bharat Group, the second largest tea producer in Malaysia. If the name Bharat conjures an image of the Indian subcontinent, you are not far off. This plantation company originates from India's Uttar Pradesh region and had made its presence in Cameron Highlands since 1933.

In total, Bharat Plantation owns four parcels of tea gardens with 1,600 acres of planting area. As it started operation in 1933, the company sold unprocessed tea leaves to other producers because it did not have its own capability to process them on their own. Only in 1952 that the company began processing their own tea leaves on contract basis, and by 1963, the Bharat company acquired an on-site tea processing plant. The rest is probably what we have seen today. Just like the Boh Tea Plantation with its famous Boh tea brand, Bharat Plantation proudly boasts its consumer tea selections under Cameron Valley range.

Our next destination is Cactus Valley. The place is very nice place to visit and you can see a lot of cactus and roses there.


Cactus Valley is one of the biggest and most popular tourist destination located at the cool mountains of Brinchang, Cameron Highlands.

Cactus Valley boast of having one of the most variety of cactus plants, some as old as 60 years. Hydroponics mehod of cultivating crops such as tomatoes, strawberry and others are being practiced



The next day, we ended our trip to shop for fruits as well as buying some plants around the highlands. The strawberries are fresh and the place is simply enjoyable with lots of shopping experience.
