    Hike up, if you can
    It's worthwhile to go - but just be aware that that it's quite a contained experience as you will just walk along a boardwalk and then back again. Do travel up there by 4x4, as the rough and narrow road would do a lot of damage to a normal car. If you plan ahead and have time and fitness, do explore the alternatives of hiking up Coral Hill or the Mount Irau hike. We will do this next time. Make sure it's not during rainy season as I expect it will be both muddy and slippery. But you'll have a lot more "in forest" feel if you do this. Permits are required and it's better to hire a guide, too.

    unique location
    Nice and unique location. Because of the hight thisd place is (2000m) the trees and plants are all covered with moss and other plants. You can only acces it when it s opened by an official person and this guy seems to only start working when he wants to, because we waited there for ages although it should have been open already. The place isn t that big, but goes up and down with wooden stairs. In front of the entrance is a nice view over the surrounding mountains. A nice experience and because of the hight it has a nice cool temperature.

    Exciting expedition to trail here 💞💞
    One of the most beautify Mother Nature: The Mossy Forest. Its beauty itself is captivating many foreigners and hikers to hike and walk along the forest with great smile and enduring the fresh refreshing air that brings calmness and joy while breezing mesmerising the walk at mossy forest. Every trees and bridge are well kept with refreshing greenery that brings inner state of mind of peace when walking through the trail. The air in this forest is so fresh and cooling that brings out the enjoyment in trailing and hiking during our expedition here.Many greenery and trees to look out for beautiful photo scene. However we need to take a 4WD up as normal car might not reach the top; as the road to the forest is very narrow and the access towards the top could be very dangerous as journey to the top is quite challenging due to the way the road access to the top. 💞💞💞

    Yes, please come visit
    We booked a half-day tour a night before our tour with Oastel.com. RM50/pax to BOH tea plantation & Mossy Forest. Pay entrance tickets to Mossy Forest separately. Our guide picked us up at 8 am at Tanah Rata by a cool-looking Land Rover Defender. If you can, please bring along some dog food/food to feed the friendly dogs along the way up. Some dogs seem hungry 😟. But please do not leave any rubbish. We arrived around 10++ am. Some visitors brave enough to drive sedan cars, and MPVs, caused traffic due to inexperience. Parking is not enough to cater for cars here. Might get worse on weekends. The weather was nice during our visit. Our guide, Mr. Selvam is a well-experienced guide & explained to us a lot about the plants including the mosquito repellant plant, Citronella. Never had we breathed so fresh air! Smoking is not allowed! The weather changes, so each day is different in the mossy forest. We had a wonderful tour with Mr Selvam (contact him at +60124424781).

    Good with drawbacks.
    Online it says taxis regularly travel up. So I took my Honda car. It was okay but the road is very: steep, narrow , winding & rough. Car made it but taken very slowly & very early morning before the 4x4s start cruising up. Staff are unusually less than friendly for Malaysians, not unfriendly, but not the smiling helpful people that most tourists encounter. Views are impressive, especially from the tower. The rest of the boardwalk is okay, but the Mossy Forest is really an underwhelming experience; better experiences are to be had in Malaysia. Pricing is a rip off for foreigners, okay I know we can afford it, but the differential is up to 600%. Worth the visit, but as a long term resident in Malaysia,I will not be returning or recommending.

    Pretty but crowded
    Very pretty but so crowded. It is on the Cameron Highland tour route that EVERYONE does and so a billion people are there at the same time come about 10 am. The tour companies drive Landrovers that spew a ton of fumes and apparently make so much noise that it harms the cicadas. Also, it was not a hike, but rather a stroll on a crowded boardwalk. It sounded as though you could go past the boardwalk and do a more legit hike, however. If I were to go again, I’d try to go when it first opens and hopefully beat all the tours.

Go with a tour guide as they have 4x4`s as the roads are bad, but worth a visit. Hopefully the weather is clear as the boardwalk can get slippery when wet. You are charged MYR30 per person and can walk the boardwalk through the forest and see something very magical. Enjoy.

Our highlight of Cameron was Mossy forest and would highly recommend it. If not for anything else then you must go just to breathe in the freshest air imaginable. Do note though that the road leading upto it is not so great and we were thankful to be in a Honda CRV. At some places it’s a steep incline. Entry charge is 30 rm per person if you are a foreigner. The board walks inside the park are laid out well, with wiring over the wooden planks at some places to ensure it’s not slippery. Will recommend well soled shoes though. Went with my elderly parents who didn’t find it troublesome to walk n climb (though they are pretty fit)

Very mystical, windy, cold and wet. Can get dark as you are under a canopy of trees. Reputed to be oldest in Malaysia surpassing Taman Negara because it was never explored due to it's rather scary dark nature. That said, the kids loved it. The site had a walk way wooden and can get slippery but the forestry department was smart enough to put steel nets to ensure that people do not trip.

You have to pay RM10 for a Malaysian at the counter. It is a short walk around but many were there for the lovely pictures. In most cases you are surrounded by cloud so it has that effect of very cold.

Young kids not encouraged ie babies.. you would have to carry them through the uneven steps can can trip. Old folks challenging as the steps up & down can be as high as two steps. All uneven.

We drove up the mountain with great anticipation to get the view from the highest peak and see the mossy forest but were sorely disappointed when we got ¾ of the way to find out that the road coming up had ruts 1ft deep (30 cm) and you could not go up without a 4x4. Turning back on a 3m wide road when cars are in front and behind you trying to do the same thing was painful. The local community should either put a sign saying "do not enter if you don't have a 4x4" or fix the road. This was very disappointing.

This is the 2nd time visiting this place together with my family and friends.I would say it is a must for everyone visiting Cameron Highlands to be here as the experience is spectacular as we climb the hill.We booked two Land Rovers from CS Travel to bring us here as they are very experienced and the tour guide is very friendly.Safety is paramount at all times.As we reached the top of the hill,found that it is even better this time as the management has completed the wooden trail to assist everyone to climb up and get down the hill safely.

I booked a 1 day tour with Cameron holiday tours. their program covers all the interesting sites. I personally prefered the drive towards and the visit of the mossy forest. Our guide explained a lot about the flora and fauna and we were lucky to see some nice cobra lily.The view from the forest is amazing on a sunny day. Strongly recommended.

We went on a tour with Ecocameron, our guide was Balla. We were collected at 8.45am from The Cameron Highlands Resort and had a good 4 hour trip, with Boh plantation included. Great half day trip and enjoyed hearing about the various flora in the forest from Bala.
The 4 wheel drive was in my opinion absolutely essential. DO NOT drive yourself as we saw a lot of cars in trouble. The road is terrible and it needs a 4-wheel drive and experienced driver to navigate.
