Before the trip, I only know that the access to Gunung Brinchang is uphill and single lane road. However, after the trip, I realized you really need a car with good condition to go up. Other than steep road, the road is not in good condition, we also need to stop from time to time to offer space to the... More

We went up the scenic route through path 1. The road leading up to the path is narrow and there is minimal parking on the grassy patches off the road which sadly was full of rubbish. The path starts of with a stream that you have to cross over. It was better to stick to the left side of the... More

My partner and I drove up all the way to the peak and camp for a night. If you are thinking of driving, you got to be a little careful. The roads are not very well indicated and some of the turns are sharp and small. We still managed thou. There is a parking lot up there. so we parked... More

I did the longest trail and it took me about 3 hours to do the full climb (which got very steep towards the summit) - the trees block a lot of view on the way up but you get the occasional good glimpse into the jungle. Keep your eyes peeled for interesting plants and animals as you hike up. Don't... More

The hike was pretty challenging, you'd have to climb up using hands and feet. It can get a little muddy so be sure to wear something you don't mind getting dirty in. The view at the top was worth it, and although your body would ache the next day you'd be glad you did it instead of just sitting down... More

Started our walk from the top of Gunung Brinchang to walk to Brinchang. The day was clear and the views of the hinterland were spectacular. Covering the pristine jungle of the national park. The track itself was rough and quite steep in some places and muddy in others but the jungle was magnificent. Lots of butterflies, some birds but unfortunately... More

Did Trail 1 in a bit less than 2 hours at the end of January 2016. As a solo traveler, I had been advised by a tour guide on the previous day (if you're in Cameron Highlands for a little longer, it's good to book a guide just to get a 'feel' of the place) to join another group of... More

On our way up to Mount Brinchang, we passed by many vantage point overlooking Tea plantations which were termed "giant green carpet of Malaysia". Mount Brinchang stand at 6666ft above sea level, and has a gem in its midst - the Mossy forest. I felt like I was in Avatar filming set in the mossy forest. It was so cooling... More

Went up there a nice sunny day. The view over the landscape was amazing. There's a view tower you cab climb at the top, although it's not very big.

You can drive up with the car. Free entrance to the tower at the viewpoint. Go there in the morning, when the mist/fog is all around you!!!!
