Mount Swettenham, standing at 1,961 metres is situated along the Kelantan-Pahang border in Cameron Highlands, Pahang. The trail starts from The Yakin tea plantation in Blue Valley, which is accessible by 4WD.
You will then have to climb up the steep tea plantation slopes, into the jungle. A day trip should be sufficient but for those who wish to enjoy the spectacular sunrise view, there are campsites along the way. The area around the peak however is too small to accommodate several camps.

Below are some links to photo galleries and blog entries of Mt Swettenham.
