Photographer's Note

The Sungai Palas Tea Estate is one of the three main tea producers in the Cameron Highlands. This estate is the highest up the hill side, close to Brinchang village.
The Englishman William Cameron mapped this area for the first time in 1885. In the 1920 they came back ans set-up a hill station here, to escape from the summer heat. The climat was, and still is, very suitable for growing tea, and so the first was planted about 80 years ago. These trees are still in use today. Tea trees, when proper maintained, can be productive for us to 120 year.
To get to the estate, take a bus or try hitchhiking from Tanah Rata or from Brinchang.
