Thompson Falls Cameron Highlands Malaysia

The most popular waterfalls in Cameron highlands are Thompson Falls. The name of Thompson Falls came from a famous mystery about Jim Thompson. Thompson was the man who made Thai silk (Jim Thompson Thai Silk Co, Bangkok) and he disappeared in 1967 after being a bit nervy at a picnic.

I was amazed by the scenery and the nature of this place. The water is clean and cold. The place is not crowded (i visited on weekends midday and it was nice). Many local food kiosks around so you can try Malaysian food there. It is great place for a holiday with family.
