We visited on a weekday and there were no crowds so it was a beautiful experience. The air is cool which makes it lovely. The initial board walk is easy for older people and children, but the walking trail after the walkways you need proper gear for a hike. I suggest getting there early and not rushing the experience.

I did this as part of a tour, with a guide, but my understanding is that it can be done independently. The flora is beautiful, as well as the views.

You have to go early to catch the quietness of the place. When the sun shone on the trees/moss, it almost felt like a scene from Lord of the Rings. A pleasant surprise!

I hard road up the hill, and as noted by others if it is raining you will really want a 4x4 for this trip. But once you reach the top its pretty impressive. There are a series of walkways for those less adventurous (or younger) that take you well into the woods and to the edge of the real trails.... More

The Mossy forest is not as good as it has been hyped. It rains often in Cameron highlands and due to heavy inflow of vehicles of domestic tourists from nearby cities in Malaysia the traffic jams on way to Mossy forest are very common. Also, it is near to the BOH tea plantation which the tour operators include in a... More

it is located at the very top of the gunung Brinchang. the area is misty and moist and alot of flora and fauna. Because it is covered by the forest the place is always wet and slippery. You can access to the top of Brinchang to the mossy forest by a tarred road. Then there is a 400 meter long... More

The forest is exactly what they say it is, Avatar! Don't just walk on the boards, go into the forest and walk on the ground there. Lots of plants used for local medicinal purposes, pitcher plants, and just so nice to experience a completely different type of topography.

Mossy Forest & BOH Tea Plantation is a must to visit. The entrance to these beautiful places is just opposite the Copthorne Hotel. A four-wheel drive is not necessary, however an experienced driver is required as the road is a little narrow and steep. On the way up, you can park your car aside and walk in the BOH Tea... More

Like - Awesome experience of being surrounded by 'mossy' feel. Touching them trigger my happy mood. Great photoshooting location. I went there with a Tiger mask while my partner with Fox mask. Makes it even more interesting when meeting other trekkers. Dislike - Some idiots who throw their rubbish in the woods. Muddy surface almost throughout the whole trekking. RIP... More

Great views...but rude tourist camping in the already very limited parking area. Trash everywhere. No toilet facilities at all other than the jungle .....which is clearly evident if you step off the path! Once on the trail the views are superb but spoiled by loud mouth rude tourist who don't know how to enjoy the moment! Pick your time wisely... More
