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

There are great views from the top of Gunung Binchang but at over 2000m you risk cloud cover ruining your view. You can hike trail 1 (2hrs) to the peak or drive the road. Unless you're sure of clear skies the 40-60MR a taxi will cost isn't worth it. You're better off doing a tour which includes the summit and... More

Time and time there will be doubts on what awaits,but it didn't disappoint. Accessible both by vehicle/foot,wonderful view of the surrounding forests. Mists even at mid day. Tower at the top,approach with caution due to rust and corrosion. Can be quite chilly at the top even with the sun.

You can have a very nice mountain view from here. Better take tour package which bring you in land rover. If normal car then it will be difficult.

Unless you are hiking up the mountain and are there for the purpose of walking, I don't recommend Mount Brinchang. This is because most of the time it is covered in cloud and there are no views whatsoever. It is a complete waste of time to go there - too much of a gamble when the odds of seeing anything... More

We got a taxi to the summit of Gunung Brinchang (60MYR), as recent heavy rain had made Trail 1 very slippery and potentially dangerous for non experienced trekkers like ourselves. The view from the top was disappointing, as there was very heavy cloud. We could barely see the top of the viewpoint tower ... Let alone anything from it! However,... More

This is about the tea plantations, the always green hills are beautifull and it wouldn't be bad to get a guide for the information they can provide. The sceney is just breath taking, like everything in Cameron highlands, go early for good weather. Clear skies are a must.

Worth a visit, especially if not planning to hike up mt Brinchang. The watch tower up top is accessible by car, and the scenic ride will take you through the Boh tea plantation. Arrange for two way transport since the route is remote and so will be difficult to hail a taxi otherwise.
