Cameron Highlands Jungle Trail No. 1, Brinchang
(4.4/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Cameron Highlands Jungle Trail No. 1 takes you through moss-covered vegetation, past honey and butterfly farms, and to the top of the hillsides covered with tea plantations. This scenic hike through the forest remains relatively easy, but be careful after rainy days when the trail gets muddy and slippery. See if you can spot wild orchids and pitcher plants along the way, watch for poisonous snakes, and try to catch a glimpse of a civet, also known as toddy cat.

  • Super fun to do. You're sitting in the middle of the jungle, no paved roads. I'm with the taxi from Tanah Rata for 10 MYR dropped off at the start of the trail. It had been raining quite a lot of hours the day before so it was pretty muddy everywhere. So handy to attract good Footwear. After 1 hour and 8 minutes I was on the top. Here you can find a toilet (for 0.50 MYR you can make use of it) and a look-out Tower. Quite a bit of luck with the cloud cover at the time otherwise you see rather little. The paved road from the top down. If you follow you come first long mossy forest which you then can also equal. Itself I found the mossy forest not that special maybe because you just an hour in the jungle have hiked. Then it's still a nice piece of trudge for you at the tea plantations, but the view is more than worth it. Eventually you come in a small village where you can take a taxi for 35 MYR back to Tanah Rata. I have not done this but going to the starting point of the jungletrail. So you have a nice button made what you (depending on your pace and your Stoppers or eaten on the go, go etc.) in about 3.5 hours can do. I had my slippers and a bag for the dirty walking shoes taken away so that I could clean the taxi in a bit, he was allowed to refuse me because I was so dirty. The trail is physically fine to do. For untrained/unsportsmanlike people it is also called to do only you do there might be some longer. Path is not very very well signposted but it is clearly visible how the path runs. Take plenty of water and maybe a dry shirt or sweater handy for after the time.

  • The beginning of the trail is quite easy, and it is becoming more and more difficult while you continue. The 700 last meters are the most difficult, you have to help yourself with your hands a lot. A ...  more »
  • Epic hike! Beautiful scenery, clean and quite. If you don't want to climb or you not a average hiker I do not recommend. Do not go if it rains, one big mud slide
