Don't use the location by the TripAdvisor map. It's incorrect. The turn off is actually located just past Brinchang Copthorne hotel if you're coming from Tanah Rata. 10km up a very steep and narrow road towards the State border on the mountain ridge. Magnificent views of tea Plantations along the way. Forest itself has wooden walkway and stairway. Misty and... More

I love the mossy forest, we have been a few times with our little kids and they love the experience of walking on the boardwalk through the forest. A great opportunity to experience genuine cloud forest.

The Mossy Forest is a relatively new attraction here. If you are ok with a little bit of climbing, great views (on a clear day) and into nature then check this out.

Visited the "Mossy forest" today with a guide from "Eco-cameron tours". He took us to another part of the forrest so not where the boardwalk is. We had to climb up and down and were treated to a spectaculair view! We saw many differents plants and flowers. The "Mossy forest" looks a bit spooky and mistique...very nice!! Would recommend everybody... More

I absolutely love Cameron Highlands and it's one of those places that I would go visit again and again for its natural beauty (which is rather often since I live in Malaysia ^_^). I'm glad to see the beginning of the trail to Gunung Irau (gunung = mountain) or the Mossy Forest as most people know it has been upgraded... More

We did a part of day trip package. Our guide was very passionate on the conservation of rain forest and very informative. A short walk in the forest with information on different plants and viewpoints. Wear good trekking shoes. The trail can be difficult for less energetic people. Worth a visit

We drove a long curvy and narrow road to reach it and it was a fine experience! Weather was cold and clouds were surrounding the trees but the general experience was great!

Its some trees with moss on a walkway, better is the drive up through the Boh Tea plantation. Usual to take a four wheel drive vehicle, but easily possibly in a normal car, but its steep & safe.
