I am yet to visit Darjeeling and Sri Lanka. To comfort myself, Malaysia has tea plantation in Sabah and Pahang too. Cameron Highlands is one of the more accessible highlands with great view of tea plantation.
Mount Batu Brinchang, or better known as Gunung Brinchang (Berinchang) has 2 interesting sites.
(1) it is the highest point in Peninsular Malaysia where car can drive up.
(2) the famous mossy forest near the mountain top
Instead of waking up like a typical morning on weekend, we decided to drive 3 hours and watched sunrise on Cameron Highlands.
