This is place was beautiful. Loved the scenery but since we were feeling tired we decided against going all the way to the top. Just went half way (till the point there were steps) and stopped when we had to walk on mud.. but the view from the mountain was beautiful.

A trip to Cameron Highlands would nit be complete without a visit to the top of Gunung Brinchang. It is a must to stop and climb the tower to view the surroundings. The fastest way up would be by car. I would suggest getting a guide or a taxi to the top instead of driving up. Typically, tourists who are... More

If you're in Cameron Highlands, I'd recommend a visit to the peak of Gunung Brinchang. I had a guide who took us in a minivan all the way to the peak. I'd love to track all the way to the summit but my friend is nursing a fractured ankle. Nonetheless, depending on the traffic, it's about a 30 to 40... More

It's a lovely experience to get off the main road of the Cameron Highlands and drive up to this peak, great views, impressive forest and the mossy forest is definitely worth a visit on the way.

The trek with trail nr. 1, is a very beautiful 3 km long route. We took our time, to take great pictures on the way up. It took us 1 hour and 50 min to reach the top of the trail. From the top, there's a road leading all the way down to the main road again, the distance is... More

The thing I loved about this place was it was the tallest peak in cameron highlands and the best thing was it was freezing cold there. We checked the temperature after climbing the tower and found that it was only 5 degree C with wind blowing at full speeds. It was really chilling after experiencing the hot weather of Malaysia.

Definitely a place you shouldnt miss in cameron highlands! ! There is a watchtower on top to climb, at first it looks scarry to climb but the moment you start climbing its quite easy..I saw a couple on theirs 70's climbed the tower.
