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

We drove up to Gunung Brinchang ourselves not with a jeep but with a myVi. I was not confident and it was rather scary! Thankfully it's not peak season and there are not many visitors, so the drive up was not that bad. If you're ever driving up there on your own, always honk at the curvy part of the... More

If you at all go to Cameron Highlands, do not return without going to the top of Gunung Brinchang. After being to the mountains in Himalayan range, it does not seem a mighty mountain or an adventure but it is worth a visit. We tried to go there during afternoon but had to return due to immense traffic. We retried... More
