Mossy Forest is at the top of Gunung Brinchang, end of Trail #1 which is mostly under cloud cover, hence the growth of dense moss in this ancient forest, very earthy and beautiful. Gunung means mountain. Trail # 1 can be hiked through the forest. The trail commences in the town of Brinchang, next to the water treatment plant, or... More

We drove to Mossy Forest, it was cool there. My children (8yo & 5yo) enjoy it but not my parents. We went in the evening and was not crowded.

Just go there, stop, use all your senses and take a deep breathe. Totally unforgetable, this is for me "must see" if you really like a nature and you respect it. If you have any rubbish, please do not leave it there as many others do...

Not really a path through the forest, more of a raised boardwalk that offers a 15-minute breeze through the canopy.

We went to the mossy forest on a half day planned tour in January 2017. Annoyingly the road on the way up was being re-surfaced so we had to walk the hill. The scenery along the road en route is beautiful as you go via Boh Tea Plantation. The views are beautiful (on a clear day) at such high altitudes.... More

Don't be put off by the big red banner, it's an easy walk on the well maintained wooden paths. The way to the mossy forest is the real challenge, so just drive all the way up there if you want to take it easy. The scenery along the road is great as well, passing through tea plantations and farmlands.

Closed off in January but everyone was still going in. Small taste of forest, mostly for those who just want to wear flip flops and can't be bothered to hike but want the benefits of nice views and flora. I wouldn't bother had I known, if you enjoy the outdoors walk Jungle Trail Number 1 and you will get to... More
