Tanah Rata Overview

Tanah Rata is the biggest town in the Cameron Highlands, Pahang, Malaysia. It is 4km from Brinchang, another town in the Cameron Highlands.

It is located 4,600 feet above sea level and enjoys a much cooler climate than areas located on flatland Malaysia.
It is the most visited among the Cameron Highlands towns by tourists and has a vast range of amenities such as budget hostels, hotels, cyber cafes, laundry facilities, banks, money exchanges, fast food outlets and restaurants.
