Continued from The highland stop 17km from Kampung Raja
Soon it started to drizzle. We immediately got back into the car and continued the drive.
Then it began to pour like cats and dogs.
If I remember correctly I had to stop the car, timed my snap just after the wiper has cleared the screen just enough to get this picture... to show that at this juncture we were leaving the state of Perak and entering the district of Cameron Highlands which is situated in the state of Pahang.
I can't remember if this picture was taken during that stop or another one.
Soon the rain began to fizzle away.
Looks like it has rained earlier and the water has dried up.
The sky was clear enough for us to appreciate the views and the existence of what seems to be long greenhouses for growing vegetables in controlled climate.
For the record Cameron Highlands is famous for its vegetables...
It is also famous for flowers and highland tropical plants. You can find shops selling a variety of these around...
Here we were 1 km from the junction to Kampung Raja, the entry point to the part of Cameron Highlands favoured by tourists. Too bad some people see it fit to dump their garbages so near the road. The authorities should take measures to place it somewhere else hidden from normal view...
Luckily the dump area did not extend so far.
Approaching the junction to Kampung Raja...
After the junction we were officially on our way down the highlands.
Here is a signboard marking the border to the state of Kelantan. See the black car near the lorry? I was already pass the border when it crossed my mind I should be taking pictures.
Looking behind as I walked back towards the car, there's a signboard showing it's the state of Pahang we're leaving behind.
So we have left Cameron Highlands.
Instead, welcome to Lojing, the highland parts of Kelantan.
