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.
