Opened in 2013, Lavender Garden which was Cameron Highland's newest attraction is located just before Tringkap town and has since grown to become a prominent tourist attraction here.
It is 6km south of Brinchang town, one of the three major towns in Cameron. If you are coming in from the direction of Tapah interchange, you will have to pass through several town namely Ringlet, Tanah Rata, Brinchang and Triangkap.
Alternatively, if coming in from the northern parts of the state through Simpang Pulai will be a lot faster where you will reach Kampung Raja first, then to Kuala Terla before approaching Lavender Garden which is along the main road.

My family and I had an enjoyable time of 3 day 2 night stay at Cameron. We stopped by Cameron Lavender on our way back after a short vacation.
I think it is a nice place to spend some time with family enjoying the beautiful garden filled with lavender and other flowers. The layout of the garden was quite organized with different sections dedicated to specific themes. You start at the entrance and walk up an increasingly steep slope to a lookout point where you could get a great view of the surrounding scenery.
It was crowded when we were there since it was during a short school holiday break. We were having trouble walking through the crowded garden narrow walkways. I guess our experience would have been more positive if it had not been very crowded.
|DATE OF VISIT : Sunday, 20 September 2015|
|The centre opens daily and charges RM5 per adults and RM3 for children, sorry that was last year.The price was increased to RM 1 each for adults and kids respectively this year.|
It is a floral themed park with cemented terraced hill slopes where ascending row upon row of flowers are grown, offering a glorious scenery of vibrant colors for visitors to admire and
happy photo shooting.
The lavender itself isn’t as plentiful as one might expect with artificial lavender scent permeating the air at the entrance but live lavender plants can be seen planted in a large plot at the centre of this park.
There are also many types of flowers grown here, there are other types of plants here like roses, peonies, yellow daisies and camellias.
The most notable sight you will notice as you reach the Cameron Lavender Garden is the purple horizon of lavender flowers. It is very well designed and an amazing sight which is different from other flower nurseries.
If you want to see the view of rows and rows of Purple lavender fields like nothing you have ever seen before, it is located at lavender-producing areas of Provence and southern France.

The open air tea shop at the hill top a good place to stop by for a cup of tea and some pastry, but were deeply bothered by the army of flies. A couple of fans to cool down the tent would be great as the morning and noon heat could be a turn off.

Mosquito Repellent Plant - Pokok Halau Nyamuk (Citrosa Geranium). Does the Mosquito Plant "Citrosa" actually work?
Overall is nice place to visit with bright colourful flowers. Apart from some picture taking, nothing much to shout about this flower farm.
Entrance fees a bit expensive but if you truly adore shooting captivating floral photography, you would have liked the many different varieties of flowers grown there.If you're driving on the way back home, stopping by for a quick look would be great but if you're planning to stay here for long, you might get discomfort in crowded places.
I'm a bit claustrophobic, I don't like crowds.
