Kampung Raja is the northern gateway to Cameron Highlands from Simpang Pulai and Gua Musang, located 6km away from Tringkap
or 12km before Brinchang
. Originally a village nestled near Ringlet
, the population was displaced by the building of the Sultan Abu Bakar Dam in the 1960s and relocated to the present site. The town's peculiar name, which means 'King's Village', is a reference to the Sultan who donated the land for its rebuilding. Today, it's a den of agricultural workers, with vast stretches of farmland occupying the busy landscape. A few gardens and strawberry farms provide tourist attractions for visitors, while 'Ngow Kee' is a famous restaurant in town.
