One of the greatest views u will ever enjoy seeing in Malaysia. I recommend going at the sunrise time so u can capture much better pictures. The altitude here is +2000m and the weather is cool but a light sweater is good enough. There is an old wooden tower to check out the view and see Cameron's villages borders but... More

The trek itself is nice and not too hard. But don't expect any views at the top. It's just some electric power central.

When you reached the peak of Gunung Brinchang, the view was totally worth my 2 hours of hiking. Totally recommended for those who love adventure and nature. But please bring extra clothes (sweater etc) because the temperature is quite cold and do not expect that your shoes will remain clean after the hiking; it's Mossy Forest after all.

This is one the best places in Cameron highlands for beautiful scenery in my opinion. I did trail 1 to reach here which was tough and unfortunately the views were cloudy. But as I descended down towards the tea plantation, the clouds cleared and we could see the views. It's an excellent place to take a walk. I did trail... More

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
