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
Natural and free tourist hot spot in Cameron. Must drive very very carefully when going up and down hill. Go up early in the morning will be able to enjoy the cool weather and sea of cloud. Go to the end of the staircase will be able to enter a small wooden watching tower. You are about 2000 meters about sea level. Lots of floral and fauna available there, remember to look up and down as well.
If you hike trail 1 you will have a better experience of a mossy forest and a really nice view more off-roading and entwined in nature. However the actual "mossy forest" is great , especially with the tower giving a 360 degree view. It's really touristy though.
A very nice place to go see forest. Recommend to go in the morning and for children to go. Nice and chill in the morning. May need to bring jacket for those who can't handle cold in the morning.
View from the newly opened watch tower was great. Temperatures could drop to 17degrees so be prepared with warm clothing. Joined CS tours for 60RM sunrise tour which included sunrise along the mountain, mossy and BOH Tea. Overall experience was great.
A nice hidden place at the top of Brinchang mountain. Beautiful mossy Forest with great view. A must visit place in Cameron Highland. At one of the 3 stop over location, there is a unique man pride shape display as well. I attached the photo here.
