Asalnya dari nama seorang penjejak British iaitu William Cameron.
Cameron Highlands was first stumbled upon by one William Cameron, a government surveyor while on a mapping expedition in 1885. He discovered a plateau at an elevation of 1370-1700 meters above sea level and was so enamored by the wide area of gentle slopes and plateau land that he gave an endearing report. It created quite a stir of excitement that Sir Hugh Low wanted to develop the area as sanatorium, health resort and open farmland. Cameron’s name was thus bestowed upon the highland area.
