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.

went up to the top just by driving. the view was magnificent. a must stop in Cameron Highlands. we walked through the mossy forest on the ready made wooden plank path and went on top of the tower. bare in mind both sites are about 500m apart.

The road leading up to Cameron Highlands highest mountain is narrow and there are a lot of vehicles from other tour operators. The diesel from cars can be smelt in the air. The observation tower at the top is made of steel, solid but rusty. The steps up are narrow and very steep. Once on top, you get a good... More

We enjoyed travelling on the winding road in a 4 wheel drive to reach the peak. The driver was driving the jeep fast and that added more thrill. Lots of vehicles were going up and down. Finally on reaching the place,we saw that it's a large iron tower and a viewpoint on top. Climbing up the ladder was exciting and... More
