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.

People told us that we couldn't get to this trial ourselves, but I think that is incorrect. The walk is steep and uphill, but I saw people do it. And, if you can ride a motorcycle, I'd definitely do that and drive to the top. Yes, the road is steep, but it is paved. The reason it is hard to... More

We really enjoyed visiting the mossy forest, the view over the forest's canopy from the summit is breath-taking. Unfortunately the weather was slightly foggy, which spoilt the view, however we discovered this can often be avoided by visiting in the morning. The road up is very narrow and windy, making it seem very adventurous! If you suffer from car sickness... More
