There are two ways to get up the hills; one via the old road Tapah and the other is the new highway at Simpang Pulai, Ipoh. The latter route is much gentler and less winding while the old Tapah route tend to be winding with sharp bends and corners. Cameron Highlands is dotted with interesting small towns of Ringlet,Tanah Rata, Brinchang, Tringkap and Kampung Raja. Abundance of fresh vegetable are available at the night market and day stalls in Brinchang.
The vast Boh Plantation in Sungai Palas is an interesting place to visit and its perching cafe on the hill top is a nice stop for a cup of tea. The view from the cafe is breathtaking and the rolling green hills are soothing for the eyes.
