“Cameron Highland Trail No. 9, A case of 3 nights too many”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

We were all done with the strawberry farm, cactus farm, bee farm, MARDI farm and all the farm goods there are to purchase with nothing more to do. So, we decided on the jungle trekking. My husband, my 8-year old son and I spent almost 5 hours of walking the path and back. We initially intended to visit the Robinson Waterfalls but whether we had missed the sign or there was really none, we walked on after coming across an ordinary looking fall with half of it all dried up. We came across a gate with no sign and another path going by the mountain side. We had assumed then the gate would be a straight down to the fall but trickier while the other would be longer but manageable. The first hour or more was spent admiring the flora and fauna, explaining how things are to my son. There was no official sign at all (what were the people at MDCH thinking/doing these days?) except for some left on branches by some previous thoughtful trekker warning of how far and trickier the path would be in front. We were grateful for these. We reached a farm, near Habu and moved on but were finally stopped by a mud slide with no foothold/handhold to proceed. The journey back was faster and we did not regret the time spent managing the slippery, narrow and tricky last 1 kilometer of the trek. Though the trip was not as spectacular as the one I took going to Gua Niah in Sarawak (hardly any bugs or creepy crawlies that we could see), it was an educational period for my son, I wish more parents would undertake.

“Challenging trail, be careful in rain”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

I walked on this trail in rainy weather. The trail had some tough obstacles like fallen trees. Don't go alone and consider only going to the falls. If you go further, the path becomes difficult. I like a challenge but this trail was scary in places and breaking your leg could ruin a nice trip. Path from the road to the falls is OK and well worth the short walk. Be careful if you go further though.

“Difficult when rainy”
Reviewed November 6, 2013 via mobile

The trail starts off nice with good walking paths but after you have passed the Robinson waterfall it gets progressively trickier. We went with trail 9b as it was supposed to be an easier decline, but there were a lot of fallen trees which made it difficult. Towards the end off the trail it got really hard and it also started to rain. Luckily a friendly hiker had put up a sign pointing to an exit as the last 300 meteres were said to be extremely hard in rain so we ended up on a vegetable farm. We took a cab back to Tanah Rata which cost us 20 rm as it was over 10km. Our recommendation would be to just go back once you get to the little metal gate that splits the trail into 9a and 9b.

“Nice walk”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Nice and easy walk past Parit falls. Unfortunately, wicker bridge over the falls is broken and not accessible. Continue to walk past Strawberry Farms, All Souls Church and Golf Course to Brinchang.

“Nice jungle walk”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Water fall is quite nice to see, after that it's rather long walk without any particular highlights. After the veggie farm a steep ascent leads back to the beginning. Good exercise, but nothing extroadinary.
