Nice view

If you are lucky, you will be able to get some great views from the top of Gunung Brinchang. Be warned though, as it is often foggy.

After Gunung Irau, Gunung Brinchang is the second highest mountain in Cameron Highlands. At the peak there is a watchtower and on a clear day you can get a good view of valleys and the towns below and its beautiful scenery. A popular spot of visitors. Also at the top is the famous Mossy forest. You can either drive up... More

The road to the top is rather steep, narrow and not smooth. Halfway its just like to turn back. Finally, I reached the car park area that is the entrance to the trail to the mountain. Nice view and very cool fresh air. The tarmac road is the highest in Malaysia at 2000 meters above sea level.

The drive to Mount Brinchang is rather fast but up on the narrow by jeep is rather daunting and scary for the faint hearted. As for me, i never felt scared and enjoy every twists and turns on the way up. Once up, i immediately climb up the rusty tower to admire the view of the Cameron Highlands. I'm literally... More

We did trail no 1, from brinchang. Climbed to top of highest hill in Cameron highlands. Mild scrambling in places, but good fun. Then walked down road, nice temperate rain forest, followed by tea and strawberry farms. About 15km in all, worth it on a decent day. We got no view at the top due tip cloud, but these things...

The road leading to Gunung Brinchang can be rather daunting and sometimes treacherous at times. Located at the second highest peak in Cameron Highlands, it offers a spectacular panaromic view if you are lucky. Otherwise, it is usually completely engulfed in mist accompanied by chilling wind. Definitely worth a visit if you have not been there before.

Walked up to Gunung Brinchang. There is a lookout tower at the end of the road. Splendid views can be had if you are lucky and it is not misty. Otherwise enjoy the exercise and the fresh air and cool temperature.

Drove up to the summit of Gunung Brinchang in Mar & May 2014, and again in Jan & Mar 2015. Managed to get clear and impressive views only in Mar & May 2014. But in Jan and Mar this year, it was a total disappointment. The entire surrounding was covered in thick fog both during sunrise and sunset. The rusty... More

Had to book a vehicle to get us up there. Opted for an early ride to catch the sunrise, and once up there, it was fridget cold so dress warmly! You'll be literally above or amongst the cloud. some basic level of fitness would make the experience more comfortable. Great for nature sightseeing, I met my girlfriend up there!

It's quite difficult to spot the junction at the main road that lead to this mountain top at Brinchang. The road is quite narrow, just enough to squeeze one car at at time at certain places and with sharp bend and steep climb. Not a problem for me since I am driving a AWD SUV. It's not that bad anyway... More
