About Mossy Forest, Cameron Highlands
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.

Mossy Forest, Cameron Highlands Reviews
Bad road but cars may be left somewhere under the mountain and take a tracking to the top. Nice high mountain view from the top-most tower there. Cool chilling windy there
It is a poorly maintain site. The road leading to the site is filled with potholes, broken grilles, narrow roadway which only one car could pass in either direction and susceptible to exposed drains along the way that could potentially damage under-carriage vehicle if one is inattentive. It is an over-hype place of interest. The toilet smells there due to unflushed feces and with no water supply. Save yourself by not going please. I went once and promise to never ever return! I was in constant fear during the uphill climb that my vehicle would heat up or breakdown due to the steep climb. Once you began climbing you have no way to turn back until you reach the top. It is a very unsafe road. Very dangerous to put it bluntly.
One of the most beautiful nature side of malaysia in Cameron height. To those who love adventure please get your gear on and to start discover this wonderful green mossy forest.
Went with a tour on a half day activity. Multiples possibilities for small treks. Beautiful forest, pretty chilly and the decks are well build (makes it easy to walk).
As it is a tourist attraction the road to the mossy forest should be wider and proper. Only 1 car can go at one time. Don't wait for fatality to happen before the road is upgraded. You want tourist money but do not care about their safety.
