Jungle walk!
Mar 2019 • Couples
Been here couples of months before, didnt expect the scenic view up there. The trip was fun and excellent with full pack of 2 days and 1 night before we headed to penang. We guided by Mr.Araf for the whole journey and that was great!

How to find track head at temple
Apr 2019 • Solo
Commencing track 2 from the Sam Lok temple, I had trouble finding the start of the track based on other advice I had seen. To find it you need to go up the concrete stairs to the right of the temple. There is a construction site at the top of the stairs - you need to go through/around the construction and then you will see the first trail direction sign.

I agree with other advice that Jungle Trail no. 2 is challenging. Wear shoes with wide tread and grip if you can. Signage is not perfect and I was concerned about getting lost but I did not make any wrong turns in the end. I did not encounter anyone else when I hiked it on a weekday afternoon.

It took me an hour from the temple to the junction with Trail No. 3 including stopping for a few photos. Then I turned right on trail 3 and it took 25 minutes to Arcadia bungalow. I believe it when other people say it takes 1.5 or even 3 hours. If you are not sure-footed and not used to climbing it could take that long. There will be slippery tree roots and muddy spots even without recent rain.

While these trails are poorly signed and under developed I want to acknowledge whoever hikes in there with a saw to cut up the logs that fall across the track - it would be even harder to hike without that work.

Only fun if you like mountaineering
Oct 2018 • Couples
This was by far the hardest trek I ever made! There is not a lot of walking involved, most steps require hands to keep you steady. Be prepared to get very dirty and to go on all fours most of the way. And when you get to the end there is no sense of accomplishment. The trail is shorter than 1km, but it was the longest km I ever did. The qualification tough does not do it justice...

Night Trekking!!!
Feb 2018 • Friends
This was my 1st time for night trekking and really had a great fun. There was around 20 of us during the trek, we started of at 7.30pm & ended around 9.30pm.
With 2 guide to assist us and support us during the trek was awesome. I would not say it was easy as there was difficult trek to go & down but we did it.
Great team effort.

Trail 2,3,7 & Cameron valley tea - fun day!
Jul 2017
We were a bit dubious starting this trek from Brinchang this morning as it had been raining last night and we are not experienced hikers. HOWEVER, my boyfriend and I took trail 2 and connected with trail 3 to reach Gunung Berembum peak and had a blast!
As I said we are not hikers, but we are go to the gym often and are reasonably fit & in our early 20's. The trek was not super easy, some parts you do have to climb and it can get very steep up and down but it's not too challenging. We stopped for water and was out of breath a few times but the route was really fun- weaving under and over trees and up natural stairs made of tree routes. The trails are really well mapped out and signs point you in the right directions.
Once we reached the top we followed down the other side and onto trail 7 that took us to Tanah Rata where we followed the main road to Cameron Valley tea plantation which I HIGHLY RECOMMEND! The place is beautiful. From here we got a cab back to Brinchang as it was getting late. All in all we walked about 11 miles and had a great time doing it 😃

Don't think it will be easy.
Jul 2017 • Couples
We took a hostel in Brinchang and started to hike the next day.
The trail 2 starts just behind the beautiful Buddhist temple of San Poh (beautiful temple that you should visit if you have a minute).
Trail 2 starts really, really steep. The first 150m are very tough, then it's just tough... always up and down.
If you are good, you can do it in 45, 60min.
At the end you have the choice between going down following Trail 3, going up to Mount Beremban following Trail 3 or going back via Trail 2 (But what's the point... Right?!)
So we went up to G Beremban and the trail was pretty awesome, although the view at the top was quite disappointing, literally inexistant to be precise.
Then we took Trail 7 which was really challenging but also very funny and went down to Tanah Rata, had some food at an awesome indian place, took Trail 4 to start going up back to Brinchang (Really easy paved trail), then walked along the road to our hostel.
A really good day to be honest.
Worth the exhausting feeling that's running through my whole body me right now!

Steep trail not for everyone
Mar 2017 • Couples
If you're not very fit I would say give this one a miss. It's very steep for over an hour up and down. There's no ropes like on other trails just branches. Although I thought this was the best trail. The scenery was beautiful. Make sure you take plenty of water and energy snacks.

3 trails in a day
Dec 2016
We started with trail number 4 (super easy). We walked from Brinchang to past the golf course, took the road on the left, go past the church, then take the road on the left (construction of a building on the left of the road) to the Forestry dept, start the trail 4 at the right. Number 4 was very easy, paved at most parts (slippery at parts), only disappointment was the waterfall. It was polluted with rubbish in the water. There is a path on the opposite side of the sway bridge which will lead you to Tanah Rata.
We went in to Tanah Rata for an hour then went back on trail 4 to get back to Brinchang. Trail 3 starts at Acacia Cottage and we decided to take a look. We walked part of trail 3 (beautiful with lovely views of the forests below). It was a bit spongy possibly due to the compost below. We did not take the right to Gunung Gerembun but took the left to trail 2 (tough!). Have to thank the very helpful people who had put up strings and even paper markings on some branches to warn people of the wrong path. The official signs are not very helpful, with my kids (all under 12 years old) missing one of the them and potentially going the wrong way. we were glad that we met another family doing the opposite direction from us and telling us that there were 2 streams to cross. Without them, we would definitely have gone the wrong way. there were no signs at those very crucial points and no clear trails and markings. The last 1-2 km of trail 2 were the toughest, with no trails, no steps, with us clinging to either branch or tree root to go up or down the nearly 70 degree slopes. We had to slide down at places too whenever there was nothing to hold. It started raining then, making the going tougher. The trail ended for us at Sam Poh Temple, a very beautiful Buddhist temple.
Need to be prepared with water, food, good shoes and lots of determination and humour.

Beautiful and tough trail
Nov 2016 • Solo
This trail is one of the most beautiful of Cameron Highland, I really liked it. A lot of beautiful insects (also mosquitos, take care!), you will cross nice small rivers. The trail is quite tough, but not so long : you can catch trail 3 just after to continue to the top (easier).

Tough!
Aug 2016
We did a halfday tour with 4-wheeldrive to the tea plantation and factory, mossy forest and top of mountain Brinchang. Afterwards we had lunch in Brinchang and hiked back to Tanah Rata, following trails 2, 3 and 5. The start of trail 2 was hard to find; you should take the road directly after the large yellow building (a temple?), which seems to be only leading to this building, but you can walk past it (via the stairs)! The hike itself is tough; be prepared. If you don't like easy trails, take this one. It is really nice! Make sure to put on good walking shoes though; some parts are slippery. We kept quite a steady pace, and it took us about an hour to get to trail 3. Trails 3 and 5 were easier, and a bit more relaxing. From Brinchang to Tanah Rata took us 3 hours in total. I'd recommend doing this after the halfday tour. :-)
