Tea and sympathy in Malaysia´s Cameron Highlands

Inland in peninsular Malaysia's Pahang state, this compact, rolling, largely forested tableland at an altitude of 1,448 meters (4,750 feet) was developed beginning in the 1930s under British rule as an area for growing tea and vegetables, along with serving as a summertime hill station (a getaway from the heat of the lowlands). It's an area of rain forests, waterfalls, and picturesque valleys; besides its nature and hiking, there are also several tea plantations (like this one) which are open to visitors.
