Too beautiful to describe. As it has just stopped raining by the time I reached the foot of the hill, the whole walk up to the forest was very cool and made the environment even more memorable. The ferns were the highlight of the whole place. Definitely a memorable place

You need a guide to get you up there unless you're going walk, you'd wreck your car otherwise. Pay for a guide who'll talk you through what's what, we didn't and regretted it. We also couldn't see any views due to fog but could see it had real potential. Expect lots of other tourists. Looked like it could have been... More

We went on a guided tour early in the day before the crowds. It was lovely. We were unlucky with the view as the clouds closed in but the walk was a delight.

We visit the forest with a guide, good way to see it because he can explain you how tourist are destroying this forest, so the moss is not growing any more where we step. There are a short wooden walk inside the forest, but you can't go further into the forest as people do! The place is wet and muddy,... More

We went up to mossy forest and did the walk on the boardwalk. It was very short walk and although it has something magical with all the forest, we had seen more beautiful scenery during our hike on trail 5.

The mossy forest is located on Brinchang hills. It is a must go if you have a spare day on Cameron highlands. It is located around 15 mins further from Sg. Palas tea plantation. I will recommend one to go to the mossy forest in the morning to experience the foggy morning and visit the tea plantation on the way... More

We were told that we could drive up to the highest part of Cameron's to gunung Brinchang and take a walk around the mossy forest too. So why not. It was a challenging slow drive up the single lane, semi dirt road to reach an open space where a few cars were parked. Here was the start to the wooden... More

Our review is probably impacted by the torrential rain whilst we were there. As it was so wet we were unable to do the trek on the unmarked paths as planned and just did a short stretch of the boardwalk. The rain and mist meant there was no view at all and although the trees and plants are abundant nothing... More
