Taking the one lane road to BOH Tea Plantation, you take a left turn onto a 1/2 lane road to the summit! We drove ourselves in our 4X4 but would not recommend it in a regular car. If you can, follow one of the local tours up - they seem to have Right of Way! On a clear day, the... More

This my second time driving up to the summit. We went up the first time around 6am naively thinking of catching the sun rise, only to be disappointed to see heavy mist. On my second trip, I had checked the weather condition before driving up around 7.30am. The drive took me about 30 minutes. The road condition going up can... More

Accessible by car, on top of the mountain situated a watch tower you can climb up to enjoy the nice view of the surroundings. It is said this is a good spot to view sunrise during clear weather days, I shall try it on my next visit.

Gunung Brinchang is the second highest mountain in Malaysia and can be accessed by trekking or by car/bike. We drove up to the peak. The drive is quite challenging with narrow roads, hairpin bends and a steep gradient. Once at the top, climb the rusty old observation tower for a bird's eye view of Cameron Highlands. There are no restaurants... More

We were on Gunung Brinchang ad a part of trip from Brinchang. There is a nice view over surroundings. But the real fun was the ride with local guide with undamageable jeep. His driving was crazy (in a good way). He was also able to tell us many interesting facts about Cameron Highlands.

The Nature of coolness. The view is amazing. You can see some parts are destroyed for development and farmers but at minimal level. But overall the nature of this place still preserved

I hiked this mountain alone while staying in the Cameron highlands. Although some of the tracks elsewhere were difficult to find/ follow this one was great. You can pick up a map at a visitors centre which will lead you to the start of the trail. You need to walk along a concrete road for a while before you reach... More

You can drive or hike to the top of Gunung Brinchang. My husband and I hiked it. From our hotel (Snooze Too), we had a 5 minute walk to the start of the trail (there are signs and people can help you if you aren't sure). We started hiking as soon as the sun had risen. The trail was a... More
