Cameron Highlands’ Mossy Forest at Gunung Brinchang has trees that are no taller than 10 metres because of the lack of moisture on lower ground. An ideal hiking spot for those who are adventurous. Not to mention the view at the top – breathtaking. Hike up this mossy forest to get some blood pumping!

Address: 39000 Brinchang, Pahang.

9. Mount Batu Brinchang

Do you have what it takes to hike up the highest mountain in Cameron Highlands-Perak? Well, you technically don’t need to hike up there at all – just drive yourself all the way to the peak! Stop by the observation tower at the summit and enjoy the view. But if you’d like to hike your way up for about 12 kilometres, that’s cool too; both hiking and concrete road trail begins at Brinchang Town.

Address: Gunung Batu Brinchang, 39000 Perak

Explore the farms where you get your honey and fruit from!

Of course, we can’t miss out on the highlights of Cameron Highlands – some of the best locally grown food comes from here! Not only is it a learning experience for both adults and kids; these places are also great for family time.

Honey Bee farms

Honey bee farms are one of the biggest tourist destinations in Cameron Highlands, apart from strawberry farms and tea plantations. Visit either one of three honey bee farms and get a taste of sweet, delicious honey. Not only do you learn about how honey is produced, harvested and distributed, it is also an eye-opening experience when we learn about how honey bees produce honey.
