It was very fulfilling experience. With a excellent guide who know his way around the place so he took us just to the best places going through very wild experiences. Kind of frightful and some point. But guess am just a "chicken"

I did a small trail walk as part of a half day selection of activities through Father's Guesthouse, and thr guide made it interesting and informative. The forest is beautiful, unlike anything I've seen anywhere else, and when I return to the Highlands, I will definitely take a longer, solo walk in it.

This diverse and exciting forest is one of the most interesting things about Cameron Highlands. It is easy to walk around and the landscape is marvellous. It is quite unlike any other forest you will find in Malaysia. Do take a guide with you so that you don't have to worry about the route and so that you can learn... More

The travelling experience through the forest is a must try. Let it be climbing up the hill or driving, its a thrilling experience. Then you get mesmerized into the mossy forest as you go by the boardwalk experience. The walk in the mossy forest takes you completely to a different world.

We went to the Mossy forest with our 1.5 years old kid. The trip from the hotel to the Mountain was thrilling, as the roads were very steep like a vertical ladder. My husband kept saying that the van is creeping along the road. Once we reached the place, it was mist, drizzling rain and cool breeze. We climbed the... More

Mossy Forest was excellent, with wooden stairs as well for easy access. The forest itself was gorgeous, with excellent views of the rainforest available almost everywhere. Getting there was quite tricky though, with the super-narrow road that made me think more than twice of whether I was on the right path.

It was an excellent visit, had a tour guide from Eco Cameron. He was witty/funny and provided good info about the forest. We had a jungle trail and it was very entertaining/informative/enjoyable till the very last moment.

With out a guide who explain the different plant, flowers and trees this is a waiste of time. But with .. it will be a fachinating lesson in natures own health and beauty store.

This is a beautiful forest on top of Mount Brinchang with tons of moss and local plants (ginger, cinnamon etc). The steps are easy to walk and the scenery on the observation huts are stunning. What kills it is the apathy of the visitors who strewn the garbage area with plastic bags and bottles. Better care is required by the... More

It's a bit of forest that's different from the other bits of forest. This will not be the highlight of your trip but it's worth going for a 15-minute walk if you have the opportunity. Go with a tour group on an excursion that includes lots of other things and your day will be well-spent.
