Would like to know what are the things/activities we can do or we can have at night while in Cameron Highlands? For day activities, there is always no problem but when nights come, we are always run out of ideas!!

It can be a bit difficult to find something to do at night in the Camerons. If you have enough "kakis" I suppose you can play mahjong which I have done before. Scrabbles send me to sleep within the first 20 minutes and Monopoly even faster. I usually hope and wish for a starry night because it is beautiful as seen from the highlands. I have stayed many times at Moon Gate and Dunhelen in the 70s and I just sat outside the bungalow and watched the stars. That is also the time for some quiet reflections. A time to come to grips with oneself.

"Don't let the stars get in your eyes, don't let the moon break your heart" as Perry Como sang. Yes, I think watching the night sky in the highlands is the perfect thing to do and meditate. Just some quiet time alone up there is good therapy.

Nights in Cameron Highlands will be real beneficial to be in touch with your inner self...........Like Kayes said, quiet reflections and being one with nature all over again. It'll be the perfect place and time to let our minds rest and detox to release the stress and tensions of the hustle and bustle of city life. Not that we can't do this in our own homes but will definitely help as the cool weather and beautiful natural surroundings coupled with the beautiful night sky in Cameron highlands will make it so much easier to be one with nature Smile

Talking about being with nature, here is a story from the Camerons. Moon Gate was built by a Scottish dentist named Duncan Robertson. According to the housekeeper (now dead), Robertson built a shower in front of the bungalow facing the rising sun. On days that the rising sun shone through brightly, he would bathe stark naked at the outdoor shower. I did consider trying it when I stayed there but ....

Hi Kayes, Susan, Joe and Liz. We all have one thing in common- we love Camerons.I often holiday up there but nothing beats celebrating Christmas in Camerons with friends.My friend's gardener would cut us a huge conifer tree that we decorated, almost literally, with "Baubles,Bangles and Beads.The cook roasted turkey wrapped in pork lace and bacon. {It does taste as heavenly as it sounds} A large fire burnt while we had dinner. Mince pies and pudding with whiskey butter rounded up the meal. And then those of us who could still move would go for a walk under the starry starry sky. Paradise on earth.

hello Blue Grass, that sounds great. Perhaps after a sumptuous dinner, the real topping is sitting under the starry sky with a loved one and sharing an iPod. And it will also be a case of having a loved one to keep you warm in the cold night air.

Found a 1981 pic of Moongate. Until it was sold, it used to be our favourite bungalow to rent despite it being a half brick/half wood structure which made it more difficult to keep out the cold in the 60s, 70s and 80s. The bungalow had big grounds and playing frisbees there was great fun. The caretaker would chop enough wood for the fireplace to burn throughout the night and also bed pans were available to warm your beds :-)
