Go with good walking shoes and prepare to get them dirty. The area of the mossy forest our tour guide took us was a small trail off the roadside. We have to walk on some uneven ground, exposed tree roots and sometimes duck under some branches. We managed to see some carnivorous pitcher plants. The forest shows how plants rely... More

We went on a short tour with guide(we saw Gunung Brinchang,mossy forest,BOH tea plantation, strawberry farm,Lata Iskandar Falls as a package with Hill Top Tours). The longer tour includes viewing Rafflesia flower,aborigine people etc. The trekking/walking will be longer in that tour and have to reach earlier in the morning for trek. We have small kids,so we chose the shorter... More

There are lots of companies vying for your business but make sure you book your excursion through the Eco Cameron Travel & Tours group - you won't regret it. Their guides are professional with lots of accurate information and they take you on paths that only their company can use. The stop at the tea plantation on the way to... More

U wouldn't find this type of forest other than this in Malaysia. The view is so calm and cold. Try visit this forest if u want something different in Cameron Highland. Good for photographer.

I visited a moss forest first time in life, so it was quite nice. The moss covered plants, tree trunks and ground, gave the place a very different feel than a normal forest. Our guide (Suren) from CS Travel was very good with explaining things to our tour group. We looked at different plants, leaves and he explained other stuff... More

Very nice excursion. You mus do it with a guide. They can tell you a lot about the vegetation and walk with you through the forrest. It is like you are in a movie with all the mossy trees. You can book a guide in Tanah Rata.

The only reason it didn't get five-stars is that our driver had just taken us to another, smaller forest that was tourist-free and all natural (no trails) so we had been spoiled. There are a lot of stairs as you explore the Mossy Forest trails, so prepare yourself and wear good shoes. The views are breathtaking as you duck under... More

Mossy Forest is one of the places that is highly recommended to visit as it offers a great view of the Pahang and Perak border. However, when I first arrived at Mossy Forest, the view was quite great. However, after a short trek on the boardwalk, the place immediately turned misty. The trick is to go up to the mountain...

I would highly recommend going here, very beautiful place, and quite peaceful as well. The altitude prevents the diversity of species, so the forest is absolutely full of moss, quite an experience. I recommend Cameron Secrets Tour, and Fathers Guest for a great stay.
