Create an itinerary including Mossy Forest
A walk through Mossy Forest reveals a chilly, misty landscape with an otherworldly atmosphere. Existing only at high elevations, where the land is permanently covered in low-level clouds, mist, and moisture, this rainforest of ferns, moss, lichen, and orchids supports a variety of creatures, including snakes, frogs, birds, and mammals. Stick to the wooden walkway as it bends around the landscape, and snap atmospheric photos of the thick grey mist hugging low-hanging vines. Hold on to the safety rope as the path is slippery when wet. Plan your visit to Mossy Forest and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Cameron Highlands trip planner.

  • I enjoyed the lush greenery of the forest and the walk along the trail was relaxing and enjoyable, as the route was along well-maintained wooden paths with high railings. The mist that appeared frequently during my casual 1.5 hour walk added an eerie but exciting sense to the environment. We were told that due to the recent landslides along the route to the attraction, private vehicles are not permitted to drive up the route and we hired a private operator to drive us up on his four-wheel drive vehicle.
  • To get here, it is strongly advised to use the 4x4 service. We booked the one that starts from the Nova Hotel. Took about 30 minutes to get here and the journey quite adventurous. To enter the park is easy but they're too many stairs and I need to carry my daughter. LoL. Wahhh..it was crazy but we have a serious good times here. The place is beautiful and you will not regret. The transportation company staffs are super friendly and generous. They are the best. Try to search for Mr. Rama and you will never be disappointed. Quite talented too when capturing your photos. Highly recommended =)
  • No private cars are allowed to enter to the area, require to contact tour agency. I looked for “Let’s Go DISCOVERY” from Facebook, their service is OK! The view from the tower is spectacular!
  • The mossy forest trail is a bit hard to find on your own. But you can join a tour or get a guide to take you there. The walk is not very far... And take only about 30.min to finish. Personally I would skip this.
  • It's a beautiful, misty mossy forest. There are information boards describing the plants and their features in English and Malay. I personally think the trip will be more interesting with a tour guide during the trail journey. The trails are easy, just that the staircase might be difficult for elderly. But as long as one do not have knee problem, it shouldn't be a big problem. I saw many aunties aged around 50++. My bf's mum is 65, no regular exercise but she manage to walk all parts of the trails. Entrance ticket RM10, u need tour agency to bring u up to the entrance by truck, which costs Rm25. If you drive your private car up, your car will be blocked by a guard at the junction before u reach the entrance. I would advise not to drive up yourself even without the regulation because the road is terrible. Kinda disappointed because I didn't spot any pitcher plant. Perhaps the forest is not that "natural" anymore.
