Bertam Valley
The Bertam Valley is located about 5 km north after the town of Ringlet. The area stretches for about 6 km, situated between meandering hill slopes and home to an agricultural community primarily involved in the cultivation of flowers and vegetables. The occupants here are mostly Chinese farmers and their immigrant workers from Bangladesh. There is a village that seems to be lost in time with a few wooden buildings occupied by shops and restaurants.

Kampung Raja
Kampung Raja is the first major settlement after departing from the Simpang Pulai Interchange on the North-South Expressway. Kampung Raja which means "king's village" in Malay is the northern gateway to Cameron Highlands from Simpang Pulai. It is relatively a new settlement, developed by the government and settled by residents who once lived near Ringlet and were trans-located to Kampung Raja in the early 80's as a result of a dam project. It is the only settlement in Cameron Highlands that is well planned and organised.
