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

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.
