I took a taxi as far up Gunung Brinchang as could be gone. The road ends at a radio tower, which I climbed in order to see the view. The view itself was decent--but no better than others available in more convenient locations, like the Mossy Forest. Additionally, the radio tower was rickety and had very narrow, steep steps that...

Contrary to the most of reviewers I got there by following the jungle trail no 1. It was a nice reward after sliding on the muddy slopes of the hill and definitively the best view of the whole walk. The view tower was crowded but 5 minutes of waiting in queue was well rewarded with views of the whole valley.... More

Actually I went there by 4X4 through tour agency and I found it normal not that superb view which I expected. Maybe because it was cloudy.

The road up Gunung Brinchang is narrow, pot-holed and winding but it is worth a visit. Views are fabulous and air fresh and cool. Early mornings and evenings are best as there are less visitors but it might be very chilly and misty during those times. A visit here can be combined with a visit to mossy forest, Mountain strawberry... More

It is 6666 feet from the sea level, we can go by car or even bike itself, 4wheel drive is not necessary here. Once we reached, we need to climb the ladder it will be around 40 stairs and three levels we can watch the great view from the top, but crowd will be there hence we can’t spend time... More

Nice , deep lush jungle. Need to hire a jeep (no lonely planet, taxis don't come here) through one of the many tours as the road is narrow and badly damaged. In top you'll be show the radio tower which is rusty as hell and people just get stuck coming up in down in the tiny steep staircase. I'd avoid... More

One of the greatest views u will ever enjoy seeing in Malaysia. I recommend going at the sunrise time so u can capture much better pictures. The altitude here is +2000m and the weather is cool but a light sweater is good enough. There is an old wooden tower to check out the view and see Cameron's villages borders but... More

The trek itself is nice and not too hard. But don't expect any views at the top. It's just some electric power central.
