Mossy Forest - Review
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
Lovely and interesting forest to visit especially in the mornings when all is under mists. Late morning means some sun rays come through so it becomes a different scenery. On clear sunny days, you can see more towards the horizon. Easy to walk on wooden platforms, but be alert if wet, short walk and climb to top of tower for best views. Check before going to ensure that the forest is open to public, as they have closure periods for restoration projects. Worth visiting.
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 top spot for nature lovers. The quality of the air up here is just amazing. The trees and the surrounding backdrop are surreal. We always make it a point to come up to the Mossy Forest whenever we're in Cameron Highlands. Been here countless times and never got bored of it. The road leading to the top is rough but nothing a standard Myvi couldn't take.
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.
Beautiful view, needs an experienced driver to get up there (no need for 4x4). Steep staircases up to the peak. Free entry. Don't go when it's raining. No toilets at the top.
