“Don't miss it!”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

The mossy forest is one of the most fun activities in Cameron Highlands. If you're an adventurer and don't mind getting your shoes dirty, you should go for the forest trail, it's way more fun than the wooden trail, and you get too see and learn about the wildlife in the process. The weather was perfect for this awesome trip!

“Great view!”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

If you have been to Cameron Highlands a few times and never been to Gunung Brinchang/Mossy Forest, you should go there. The view is fantastic but you need to walk/drive quite far to reach the top of the mountain/mossy forest. There is a walk path provided for us to access the forest, you may stop once a while. There are places for you to sit down, relax and enjoy the great view!

“A great way to explore the jungle with little kids!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

The boardwalk throughout the mossy forest means that access is easy but the whole experience is very exciting for little ones. We were lucky to have a clear day and the views were beautiful. The forest itself is also lovely and you can spot all kinds of cool plants as you explore.

“Cold & Clean Air & Breathtaking VIEW..”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

You need to drive up to Mount Brinchang. From Kea Farm it takes about 15-20minute if the traffic was ok. The road to Mount Brinchang quite steep & some part about 2km to the top the road only accessible for 1 traffic road. So you need to be extra careful & hon is a must when near blind spot or turning areas. Road condition also not that recommend for Sedan type of car.

Mossy forest is an entrance to Mount Irau (Gunung Irau). The wooden plank walkway is just about 1km into the forest. Need to walk on the wooden plank up & down but the view was great & worth while. Not recommended for old folks & kids with stroller.

Its a worth while visit. View is just breathtaking & terrific. You will not regret it. But need to ensure you're ready to walk.

Pro's : Great view

Con's : No toilet or other facilities.
