We stayed in the camp ground. Very basic. The bathrooms are not for the faint hearted. The campground was reasonably clean as our fellow campers were clean and tidy people. We were told however that this is not always the case as some people completely...More

This trail is currently closed. Same for trail 10. Don't come to the Cameron Highlands for the hiking. The smaller hikes, like Mossy Forest for example are nothing special to be honest.

I spent here 3 nights. when you want to go trekking it's a really cool place! There're not that many tourists but still some guys who you can talk with in the evening. Great!

This trail is now officially closed. The stream is now very difficult to cross and all ropes are removed. There are big red signs barring entry to the forest reserve and significant amounts of razor wire.

Trail 1 was all that the many contributors have already written about. Epic fun climbing over and under trees, getting stuck in ankle deep mud, conquering steep sections with ropes to finally make it to the top of the hill. Finding the path was really...More

No. You just take a taxi to the start of the hike. It is off the main road. From there it's fairly well sign posted. No one worries about grids on these hikes.
