The Cameron Highlands areas was originally discovered in 1885 by William Cameron, a British government Surveyor who came across, "A fine plateau with gentle slopes, shut in by loftier mountains", whilst hacking a path up through dense jungle on a mapping expedition. Creating a hill station in the area was first voiced in 1888 by Sir Hugh Low, a Perak resident who suggested it might be a suitable place for a retreat and farmland.
For a long period very little happened, it was not until 1925, over 40 years after William Cameron's original discovery, when Sir George Maxwell visited the area and it was decided to develop it into a hill station. Cameron Highlands was a heaven for the British who were stationed in Malaya as it provided relief from the hot and humid tropical climate of the lowlands.
