Not a good idea to drive your own car to the destination. The roads will do damage to your vehicle. But after that, you will be greeted with lush of green and moss. Do go there with a group of people or hire a local guide.

The road leading there are terrible. Noticed a board this road was or I think were maintained by a company but was really bad. Looks like nobody maintain it except the natural. I've even advised some family do not go there when I've struggled back to main road as that day itself, lots of Singaporean & as we all knew,... More

It was probably one of the highlights of the trip. The guide brought us through a section of the forest to get a sense of the moss of the trees. Very magical.

It's really an interesting trip, the tour I took was Eco Cameron I think, cost about RM60 per person, driver picks you up and will drop you back. Its a nice experience seeing that kind of forest covered in mist! Very much recommended for locals as well!

Fresh air with good scenery. Need to use four wheel drive or mpv to go there. The road was small and need to be careful.

The walk through mossy forest is interesting and refreshing. There are 2 options to the walk: Broadwalk or trekking. We chose the trekking which is rather challenging but worth the effort. You must come prepare with trekking shoes and hiking stick which would be a great help if you're not the sporty type. The trip comprises some photo shoot time... More

When we got there, the govt had closed most part of the official mossy forest for conservation so we didn't get to see the famous giant plant in the mossy forest but nevertheless the guide was game and brought us on a small uncharted course through the forest and back. It was a great sight, and the best part was... More

Mossy forest offers a different view compared to other rainforests found in Malaysia. As it is known as Mossy forest, the trees are indeed covered with green moss. Even though it is quite hard to drive up to Mossy forest (about 9km uphill with single lane road, good car condition is much needed), the view is worthy. It is less... More

Beautiful scenery, natural and cool fresh air. An exciting adventure starts early in the morning is advantage to enjoy peacefulness and serene environment. Good for those like natural.

It's a forest. Lots of views - nice gentle walk although some very steep stairs - wouldn't take small children (indeed those there slipped, fell, cried). Just under 2km round trip I think - we got a reasonably good time in the day with not many people around so got to hear the birds and silence.
