After a day of hanging out in Tanah Rata in the Cameron Highlands we decided to hit the road and pass on all the tours to see the flowers.

The ride DOWN has been one of the highlights of this trip. The temperature was nice and cool for most of the decent and the fresh smell from the jungle and farms was refreshing – from all the palm tree plantations we’ve been seeing so far.
We rolled for nearly 2 hours down to Tapah – definitely pay back for the big slog up hill 2 days before.
