Cameron Highlands
Agrotechnology Park


While others are cutting down trees and obliterating natural greenery to make way for costly and dubiously feasible development, Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute (Mardi) is looking at the many species of temperate crops and plants, including roses, anthuriums as well as fruits, vegetables and herbs, to prop up the hill resort's reputation as one of Pahang's leading destinations.

The agrotechnology park is divided into six main areas: the English Garden, Herb Garden, Orchid Garden, Rose Garden, research centre and an information centre, where tourists can also buy souvenirs. Mardi's Agrotechnology Park is home to 40 varieties of roses, 10 strawberries, 100 citrus fruits, at least six types of anthuriums, four varieties of apples, and pears and persimmons.

The Herb Garden boasts more than 50 species of temperate and local herbs. Visitors can also try their hand at planting the herbs and learning more about them. A green house, housing various types of flowers and vegetables, is sited at the research centre. One of the centre's functions is to do research on the production of new plants, protection from diseases and insects as well as new plant management techniques.




The English Garden boasts of two black and white quaint cottages which come with two or three rooms at "affordable prices", beautifully designed according to 16th century Tudor architecture. There are also plans to restructure and redesign some of the old buildings around the area for affordable homestay. Besides homestay there are looking to introduce a Pet Garden with goats and rabbits for children to study and play with.
One activity planned is jungle trekking to the nearby Bukit Beremban area and a choo-choo train ride. They are also in the midst of coming out with various packages and programmes for visitors.

The Mardi in Tanah Rata is also the venue of the annual Flower Festival held in August, an event where flower-decorated floats compete for prizes.

The Mardi Agrotechnology Park in Tanah Rata is open from 8pm to 4.30pm daily. For RM2 (adult) or RM1 (child) per entry, you get to walk through an English garden, Temperate Herbs patch and Orchid House or look at the latest strains of flowers from Holland at the 4ha site.


Cameron Highlands is accessible via the North-South Highway using the Tapah exit. The drive up can take at least two hours for those who are not familiar with roads there. There are also regular bus services from major towns in the West Coast. The Agrotechnology Park is in the vicinity of Tanah Rata.
