Easy trail with a rewarding view
Dec 2020
A well marked trail which is fairly moderate in difficulty. Can be quite easily done within an hour (each way). The start of the trail is walking distance from Tanah Rata town. The trail starts on a fairly gentle terrain but becomes moderately steep after 30 minutes and continues for another 20 minutes. The final 10 minutes is fairly flat. The peak is marked by a power transmission tower, located at the top of Gunung Jasar. It gives you a rewarding view of Cameron Highlands and the Tanah Rata town below.

It was quite an enjoyable hike and can be done with little to moderate levels of fitness.

Straightforward Trail in Tanah Rata.
Jul 2020
Good trail that affords several good views of Tanah Rata. The trail start can be a little tricky to find, but take the advice of your guesthouse as there is a construction site at the starting point.

Hiking 10&6
Jul 2020
please use Sept 19 comment from budgetbucketlist for more detail if you plane to do the 10&6. It's a great hike! However, at the start, she mentions that the hike leaves from behind the weather station... I think she means the electrical substation! Save yourself the steep hill up to the weather station and take the road to the left. From thereon her directions are solid! (We actually started on 11, then linked to 10 pretty early on. Wonderful views - and, as you can imagine - the trails are empty (and somewhat overgrown!). Poles recommended. +/- 4 hours for a pair of lazy lockdown 40 somethings.

Fabulous walk
Jan 2020
We actually combined parts of trails 5, 6 and finished on trail 10. It was spectacular, some parts of it quite steep but very enjoyable.

Nice hike
Jan 2020 • Couples
After reading the article "a complete hiking guide to Cameron highlands" from "bucketlistly blog", we decided to do the same trail as the blogger (a combination of trail 10 and 6), you'll find the circuit and the other trails in details on the blog...

The moderate hike in the forest was really nice, but once at the top, we found that the view was spoiled by some big buildings.
On our way down, we went throught trail 6, its first part was steep and very narrow as said in the article. At the end of the hike, we passed throught a tea plantation and because it is a private property, we had to pay 3Rm per person for passing from there.

The view of the tea plantations was nice but having seen many gorgeous ones in Sri Lanka, i should say that it was not that attracting for us. (Maybe we just became a little hard to please!)

Nice trail. Decently marked. Challenging but fun
Dec 2019
Goes through a construction site at first, then a really nice flat forested bit, then starts climbing (still in forest). Climbing is well supported by tree roots, and the whole trail is well shaded by trees. Decently marked, but use maps.me to be sure you don't get lost. Took us about 2 hours, but we went slowly.

Path was blocked by a big fallen tree
Dec 2019
The path was blocked by big fallen tree just short of reaching submit. Disappointing. Quite tough. Wear proper shoes. Bring hiking stocks or sturdy umbrella.

Tough trail, very rewarding view!
Oct 2019 • Couples
The trail goes uphill and gets quite steep at some point. The path is not always easy. But when you endure it you are rewarded with a spectacular view! There is a part Mossy-Forrest look a like. From uphill you can switch to trail 6 leading into the tea plantation.

Correct Trail info on Trail 10:
Sep 2019
Hi there, I’m a full-time traveller that stayed twice in Cameron Highlands for several weeks. I walked every single trail here, and realized there’s an incredible amount of incorrect information and confusion out there. Times are incorrect, trail info incorrect (even on the signs), and people (incl. the local tourism office) seems to be unclear of trail names and which exist and which ones don’t.

So, I made it my goal to walk each and every one of them and made many notes. A full hiking guide including an entirely updated map (+ other info on transportation / accommodation / food / other activities / traveling the Cameron Highlands for FREE) can be found on the site that is my username + /cameron-highlands (links will get blocked here).

Here is the trail info for TRAIL 10:

Trail info: Trail 10 is the only trail allowing the climb of Gunung Jasar. It’s probably the most popular trail in the Cameron Highlands, because of the views.

Beginning & end: One end of the trail is just south of Tanah Rata… however, real estate is greatly expanding here, hiding the entrance. In 2011 I entered the trail via a forest, in 2019 I entered it after crossing a massive construction site (closer to the greenery you’ll find arrows and signs indicating the trail) … The other end is at the west side of Brinchang, right behind the weather station. It’s a bit hard to find, but once you approach this facility you’ll notice a beaten track on the right side of the gate, which you can simply follow. Behind the weather station Trail 10 starts when going straight up… if you walk via the left side, you’ll end up on Trail 11. There are ribbons indicating the route, and it can be found back on Maps.me.

Experience / Level of difficulty: This is, together with Trail 6 (with which it’s easily combined), my absolute favourite in the Cameron Highlands. No need to pay for the Mossy Forest tourist trap, as here you’ll find a fine stretch of free mossy forest. I walked it both ways in both sunny weather and mist, and I found that the mist added greatly to the mystique. On top of that, it’s one of the few trails with fantastic views, especially at the peak. Many passengers-by mentioned to me they found it quite intense, but in my opinion, it was one of the easier trails only requiring a basic level of fitness. However, it does indeed get steep at times.

Time: From Tanah Rata to peak: 36 minutes / From weather station to peak: 35 minutes; both measured walking up.

Good Start! Disappointing ending.
Aug 2019
We did this trail a few days ago, it was more a climb than a hike, which is okay for us. The first part through the forest was really great. If you walk left when you reach the top you are rewarded with some great views of the Bharat Tea Estate. Here you can follow Trail no. 6 down through the tea plantation, which looked great! However, we chose to finish Trail no. 10, and I was disappointed on the way down. Especially because when the trail ends, you have to walk 3 kilometers back to Tanah Rata on a road made for cars. This was a bummer, as the other parts of the trail had been so nice. Anyways, I would definitely recommend to do the trail, but please go left at the top to follow trail 6 - really looked nice! :) It took us 3 hours (but can be done in 2-2,5 if you don't stop to take too many pictures).
