Take a walk through the meandering ways of the Mossy Forest and get to see nature at its best. This forest is conspicuous as it grows only at the highest elevated land of Cameron Highlands and other mountain ranges that grace Malaysia. Since these forests are located at the height, they are constantly under moisture resulting in permanent mist and thus become an ideal biotope for moss, ferns, lichen and orchids. You can actually explore this forest through a 2- km long boardwalk as it touches the peak of Gunung Brinchang. You won’t have to worry as a series of wooden platforms have been kept for the convenience of strollers. Rope railings are also installed for the safety of the walkers. Just keep in mind that the environment can be bit chilly.

  • It's a place worth visiting. Truly special at least during our visit as clouds covered higher parts of the Highlands and the forest as well. However, it was a long trek to the top and if not for a lovely couple that gave us a lift on the way up we would have spent hours walking up the road.

  • A must visit place to those who planning for vacations at cameron. I really had an awesome time here. Loved it

  • Very nice for nature lovers.... you'll forgot yourself inside the forest. The road is blocked when we go..but still we reached the highest point view'.

  • Only climbed up the well maintained and built section with wooden steps and stairs. The scenery up there at the observation deck is breathtaking, worth the 40 minute walk and you will pass by massive moss colonies covering most of the trees all around you, it's a little slippery but is really worthwhile and an eye opening experience for those living in the tropics. There's a further mud trail that leads up to the peak of Mount Irau that takes approximately another 2 hours and 30 minutes, it's main entrance is at the end of the well paved trail and you are usually required to hire a guide.

  • Lovely place to learn about nature. It's best to go with a tour guide so that you are able to learn as much about the environment and ecosystem there. Downside is that there are too many tourists who are not as considerate of the place.
