The bus ride up to these highlands were among the most twisty my stomach has ever had the pleasure of enduring. It’s usually a small point of pride to me that my body can generally withstand motion sickness; specifically for the purpose of reading in the car during long journeys. However for this trip, the driver’s fearless demand for adrenaline (and perhaps a deep-seated desire to show off his skill) would send us hurling and honking around blind corners at seemingly impossible speeds. Lets just say that reading was far from an option…

We arrived at our guesthouse; a nice place called De’Native Guest House which offered the whole “Jungle Bungalow” experience. It was my first time utilizing a bucket of water and a scoop to “shower” haha. Fun stuff. The owner (Krish) is the nicest host in the world – he went out of his way to share his insights on just about everything including religion, political issues, food, and the culture in general. Here are a couple photos of the place to give you an idea:

 

The dogs were hilarious...and insisted on following us everywhere.

I have to say, the two things that stood out to me from the Cameron highlands experience were the abundance of fresh mountain air, and deliciously addicting Indian food. Seeing the tea and strawberry plantations were also highlights, but the experience of clean air was truly invigorating. Here are some more photos from our adventures around the region:
