I absolutely loved this place. We took the "lazy" walk up the mossy forest from the highest accessible point of Mount Brinchang since we came here with young children. However I would encourage anyone who has time and stamina to spend, to trek through the various trails available through Mount Brinchang to the Mossy Forest to experience maximum connection with the natural environment of Cameron Highlands. The Lazy walk is essentially a stroll along the wooden boardwalk built at the highest accessible point of Mount Brinchang and the main entrance to it is accessible by vehicular transport. Walking along the boardwalk would take about 30 to 45 mins depending on how fast you walk. Nevertheless, it allows you to catch a glimpse into the enchanting, mystical atmosphere of the forest. As expected, the forest is filled with moss and amazing structures formed by plants, trees and flowers. Would strongly encourage you to stop and admire the flora within the forest. Because the forest is at the highest accessible point of Mount Brinchang, clouds pass by at the overhead of the forest and creates a nice feeling walking just right under the clouds. Try to go with a local guide as the guide would be able to explain to you the different types of flora found here which will help you appreciate the forest even more. The boardwalk is suitable for most including young children but not really recommended for elderly folks as there are many steps to climb and the walkway can be rather slippery as it is wet from the condensation of the moisture from the overhanging clouds. There are a few small sheltered huts along the walkway for resting. Would highly recommend to visit this place to truly understand why Cameron Highlands is one of the most beautiful place in Malaysia
