Next planned trip- One Day ride to Cameron Highlands

After back from our first ever ride to Malaysia East Coast, our next planned destination is Cameron Highlands, Pahang. This will be an one day ride, we will depart from KL on 23rd Sept 2007 morning. Estimated total distance is about 600km( 2 ways).

The Highlands were named after William Cameron, a British colonial government surveyor who discovered the plateau during a mapping expedition in 1885 The fame of
Cameron Highlands then grew during the colonial era when British planters realised the potential of its fertile mountain slopes for growing tea, then a prized commodity. The Cameron Highlands are still home to many tea plantations, being Malaysia's largest tea-producing region. The area is also known as a major supplier of legumes and vegetables to both Malaysia and Singapore with its many farms, and is one of Malaysia's prime tourist destinations.
