Mossy Forest, Brinchang

4.1
#1 of 62 in Parks in Pahang
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 .

  • A place for exploration, flora and fauna studies, spotted rare insects while climbing. My favourite place for recharging body and soul.  more »
  • Search mossy forest in waze n I’m sure you can find it. The road going up there was a challenge cos of uneven, uphill and narrow road, the wife scream along the way and we are not yet there. We went a...  more »
  • You can drive by car or be taken with a minibus. The latter I would advise, the road is not that best. Beautiful walk that is good to do with wooden vlonders you walk in it.

  • As they say this is one of oldest forest in the world, however we didn't get a chance to see it completely as due to rain there were damp mud all over place and you are unable to walk further. But still we get a chance to see it small enough and it was good. All trees covered in green algae type thing and ferns were growing on stem, it was pretty.
  • Totally worth the visit to Cameron Highlands. Amazing untouched nature. Make sure you book a guided tour otherwise you will miss out on a lot of interesting information. The main trail is closed at the moment (January 2019) but will reopen soon. There is an alternative trail available, but you will get dirty (its not too bad though)
  • A must place to visit if you are in Cameron Highlands. Love it love it love it. The air up there is so fresh...the view hmmmm just splendid. Anyway please wear a suitable attire because the surface is very wet and soft. My suggestion for you please book a tour guide because they will carry you up there by jeep and will provide you with all the info you need about this place. The road up there is very very narrow so better do not drive up there by your own car. This forest is older than Amazon according to our nice and polite tour guide Mr Ravi. Wow...really proud of Malaysia...older than Amazon. This place is really a Gem.😀
  • Hope this trail can preserved both by hikers and the authorities. Its beautiful here and it feels like you are in a different world. I truly enjoy it very much
  • Incredible. Beware: the road is tight and rutted. Do not take heavy vehicles up here (large vans/buses). We did it in a Toyota Vios carefully. It’s a long road and although beautiful I wouldn’t walk it. The boardwalk is under construction but usable. The scenery is amazing. The cloud and Moss makes everything wet and an unusual ecosystem I’ve never seen before. There’s a tower to climb above the canopy (you can’t see due to cloud but that’s the point). It’s short and worth it, a must see if you’re in the Cameron Highlands and enjoy scenery. Watch out for cars and farmers on the way and take your rubbish with you.
