Did Trail 1 in a bit less than 2 hours at the end of January 2016. As a solo traveler, I had been advised by a tour guide on the previous day (if you're in Cameron Highlands for a little longer, it's good to book a guide just to get a 'feel' of the place) to join another group of... More

On our way up to Mount Brinchang, we passed by many vantage point overlooking Tea plantations which were termed "giant green carpet of Malaysia". Mount Brinchang stand at 6666ft above sea level, and has a gem in its midst - the Mossy forest. I felt like I was in Avatar filming set in the mossy forest. It was so cooling... More

Went up there a nice sunny day. The view over the landscape was amazing. There's a view tower you cab climb at the top, although it's not very big.

You can drive up with the car. Free entrance to the tower at the viewpoint. Go there in the morning, when the mist/fog is all around you!!!!

The view from observation tower is breathtaking but driving up can be exhausting. No entrance fee required and no tour guide required. May park at mossy forest main entrance and walk 10 mins up the hill (tar road).

Walking on clouds at 2,000 meters above sea level. ‪CameronHighlands‬ experience won't be complete without the experience of the zephyr at 10℃ wrapping your whole body up to its last capillary.

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
