We went there as part of Eco-Cameron half day tour. We only got to walk about 30mn in the forest and I think it is worth spending more time trekking the area. It is a very unusual place with interesting plants and trees. Moss is everywhere on the ground, on the trees, hanging from the branches... Quite a sight !... More

Very nice forest but be ready to walk uphill for a long time or take a taxi to get there. If you are lucky and it is not foggy you will have a great view!

We spent 30 minutes in the Mossy Forest as part of a Eco Cameron Travel tour- it was amazing! So cool and damp. There were carnivorous pitcher plants hanging from the trees and because of the moss- it was eerily silent. If you're headed out to the BOH tea plantation (Which you MUST SEE!) then I absolutely recommend that you... More

The hiking in this area is excellent but very challenging. The path is easy for part of it so non-hikers can still enjoy some views but you should hike for 1 hour into the forest to experience it. The mossy trees are very pretty. No water in area, bring snacks and water for hiking. Try to walk with a partner... More

Started with a long and winding road, a 4wd is better however my proton exora survived it and so does the myvis. The boardwalk was safe enough for little children but it stopped short and you will have to turn back unless you are equipped with hiking gears.

Looks like something from Lord of the rings! Cool, and full of orchids and pitcher plants. Definitely do a tour with Cameron Secrets... they have exclusive rights to a secret part of the forest with less people. Worth a trip to this unique place.

Not easy to find on your own as there are no indication and there seems to be no tourism authority ou bureau around (tourism is very poorly managed in Malaysia). However, we ended up finding the right small, steep and winding road leading to the entrance. there are couple of great spots for stunning sunset if you are lucky.
