This forest type occurs in New Zealand but usually requires days of walking or a helicopter ride to access. In Malaysia we drove our small rental car to the walkway and then just walked the wooden walkway. We are used to roads of this quality, (or lack of), so weren't worried by the steep and narrow road but nervous drivers... More

A light hike through this ancient forest was a truly magical experience. We went as part of the "Nature Discovery" tour we booked at the tourist information office next to the bus stop. The tea plantations are amazing but the forest was a highlight for all of us.

We were there during the extra busy 'merdeka' (independence) weekend. For the mossy forest (an absolute must-see), we had the following options: - do the cheesy, half day package tour 50 RH (but then you only stay 30 min in the mossy forest - and the other things are just 'fillers') - get a taxi up - let it wait...

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.
