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

On 30/7/14 at about 11:30 am, We drove our own sedan up to the narrow, winding, bumpy road! Eventhough it's a tar road! The driver must be prepared to face the driving challenge ahead as most the road was very narrow and barely fits 2 cars. Anyway, It was amazing view along up to the mossy forest entrance! The carpet-like... More

The trip I had to the mossy forest was a rather peculiar one as it is not the first time me and a few friends had come across it but the previous time we had arrived to late to take the hike. This time however we arrived early enough ( make sure you arrive at before 2p.m if you intend... More

Mossy forest is 1-2 km away from Gunung Brinchang. Not a lot to see, but still the most exciting part of Cameron Highlands. I think it depends where you are from if Cameron Highlands is a nice place to visit. For us, it was an average experience. We are a couple from Norway, where we have more exciting nature :)

We went in a hire car. You turn left just before the gate to BOH tea. 50 yards on, the road forks. MAKE SURE you take the left hand fork! The mossy forest is worth a walk but invariably it will be covered in cloud. I wouldn't spend a long time here unless you are a botanist.

The forest is indeed very scenic and the views can be pretty breathtaking, if no clouds are on the scene. On some days it can be fairly busy here. The easiest way is to drive up the mountain to the entrance. For a little more excitement: hike up the mountain from the town of Brinchang by using jungle track no.1

First time knowing that mosses is the main water source in Cameron Highland! No visit to Cameron Highland is complete without visiting mossy forest.

The cool weather, mossy trees and spongy forest floor lent a very unique ambience to the place. It was as if we were teleported to another dimension, very Lord of the Rings feeling! The tour guide showed us a type of rare lily plant found only in the forest there and not elsewhere in Cameron Highlands. It looked like a... More

Went there on 18th with a friend. We reached the top by car (perodua myvi),which was not a good idea since my tyre punctured at Cameron Highlands Bharat tea plantation stop,but spend almost 2 hours up there. I recommended for people who want to go up there,do be up there early in the morning.if not,it will be crowded with people... More
