13. Amoss Farmstay Cameron Highland, Pahang

A unique gampling site situated within a tea plantation and a cabbage farm, this is one of my top recommended glamping sites in Malaysia. There are farming activities provided for all guests to try, as well as tours to the tea plantation for tea enthusiasts.

Apart from the farm tour, they also provide a Mossy Forest tour for all guests either by hike or ride the 4×4 provided. It can get really cold at night (as low as 10 degrees celsius on cold rainy days) so pack some thick sweaters and a raincoat along.
