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

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

First time here. Though the boardwalk is short, the guide was knowledgeable and shared with us survival tips and let us try walking on the moss. The walk on the moss was challenging but it was fun.

We visited Mossy Forest with Eco Cameron half day Mossy Forest tour (also visited tea plantations and factory). Enjoyed our trip- our guide was able to point out lots of plants and we saw some lovely views. Recommend it!

You get to see beautiful and yet rare sceneries here. All the mossy plants are just incredible. You would feels like you are in some sort of fairy tales setting. A great weekend getaway as it is near to Kuala Lumpur.
