The Cameron Highlands Butterfly Farm is one of the more popular attractions in the area. It is located at Kea Farm in Brinchang. The farm showcases a variety of butterflies that roam freely in the farm enclosure. If you are lucky, the butterflies might even stop on your body to give you a closer look at it. Once you go into the farm, you will see butterflies fluttering around from flowers to flowers. The farm is filled with plants that are butterfly friendly and flowers are everywhere. There are many butterflies with very pretty and interesting patterns on their wings in the enclosure. Despite its name consisting of the word farm, the place does not breed nor cultivate butterflies for the farm but the butterflies are wild specimens captured regularly.

One of the things to do in Cameron Highlands Butterfly Farm is, of course, seeing butterflies flying around the farm. The main butterfly species that can be seen here is the famous Rajah Brooke’s Butterfly which is also Malaysia’s National Butterfly. The other butterflies with colourful wings will also capture your attention as you explore the farm. Other than that, the farm also displays a wide collection of beetles in separate glass boxes which is also interesting to see. There are also other insects, lizards, snakes and mammals on display in the farm.
