It is 6666 feet from the sea level, we can go by car or even bike itself, 4wheel drive is not necessary here. Once we reached, we need to climb the ladder it will be around 40 stairs and three levels we can watch the great view from the top, but crowd will be there hence we can’t spend time... More

Nice , deep lush jungle. Need to hire a jeep (no lonely planet, taxis don't come here) through one of the many tours as the road is narrow and badly damaged. In top you'll be show the radio tower which is rusty as hell and people just get stuck coming up in down in the tiny steep staircase. I'd avoid... More

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
