Pity is there is no... More

The platform looked to be closed. But then saw some people coming down from the platform and opening the gate. We did the same. It appears to be locked but you can open it. Make your way in and you'll find amazing views in the depth of mossy forest. Not recommended for small kids though.

By car the mossy forest is easily accessible and you can step right in without any hard trekking to see this beautiful forest. The climate of this area creates this moist, tropical, evergreen forest covered in mist which gives you a feel like you are in a forest from the Grimm fairytales! Do check with the locals though as I... More

We booked with one of the many tour operators in Tanah Rata - all of whom advertise visits to the Mossy Forest. However, the Mossy Forest is closed to all tourists. It is illegal to enter. The idea is that the forest will be cleaned up and better management of visitors organised so that they do not damage the moss,... More

On our way up to Mount Brinchang, we passed by many vantage point overlooking Tea plantations which were termed "giant green carpet of Malaysia". Mount Brinchang stand at 6666ft above sea level, and has a gem in its midst - the Mossy forest. I felt like I was in Avatar filming set in the mossy forest. It was so cooling... More

Had a short walk in the mossy forest. The guide showed us different trees, mushrooms and some herbs that could be used for medical purposes. Recommend this trip, but bring good shoes as it can be muddy.

Mossy forest was closed in January 2016. Our guide couldn't tell us when it will re-open because they have some general problems with permissions/the owners and stuff like this. We did an other 'mossy' and 'cloudy' part of the forest on cameron highlands, which was also perfect!!!

The road up is long, narrow and windy and the Mossy forest walk was closed as of 10 January. Check before you go whether it's reopened as not worth the difficult drive if closed. We did go further to the lookout where the view from a tower (slightly before the gated off facility and easy to miss) gives a panoramic... More
