The vegetable gardens at Bukit Tinggi
The major towns in the Peninsular usually get their supply of fresh vegetables from farms in Cameron Highlands. Today, the markets in Selangor obtain certain types of beans from the farms at Bukit Tinggi situated at the State Boundary very near the Genting Pass.
Curious to see how these patches look like, we took a hike to "check it out".These terraces are popularly planted with beans, long beans and 4 angles beans. Beside these filling the hill slopes there are those in the ravines. These are terraced plots hidden from view besides the river, whats this? - Water Crest
Further down in the plain, you still get to see an occasional patch of ginger being planted. Ginger plants with its slow growth and low maintenance is seldom seen in valuable farmland such as the one shown below. They are the plants chosen for freshly opened forestland.
So this farmer must have found a compensating method to recycle this piece of land.
Visitors unfamiliar to this valley will be shocked to see that a network of roads, that has now changed the valley's outlook!
With this network, you can be sure that more rectangular patches will be converted into farmlands. The hard working farmers had showed good results with existing land. To compound the problem of loosing forest land, more housing projects are visible and encroaching the cultivated patches.
Keep your eyes peeled on this valley of rolling hills every time you pass by the Genting Pass. The once scenic valley is now filled with settlement.
