    Trail no 10 entrance have changed due to construction. No longer passed through Tan's Camellia Garden. The entrance now is at Jalan Jasar. Do not pass through Convent School at the left. It should be Jalan Jasar at the right .

    One of the cleanest and serene places. We enjoyed a lot. We were staying at Camerin Hughland Resorts. A very Anglo vintage place, which is very well maintained and clean. We loved our stay. We did do the general visits like the tea gardens, sheep feeding, Flower Gardens etc. It was really very busy over the weekend though. But worth the visit.

    This is good for families with children. It has 2 restaurants, one for western and local food and another japanese restaurant. Food was quite good.

    It has also areas for children to feed small animals(goats, rabbits, ducks, chickens).

    There is also a small pond for children paddle boats.

    Starting at the Smokhouse Hotel alongside the golfcourse. Follow trail 3. Maps.me shows the route very well indeed. We heard trail 7 would be quite hard to go down with a lot of plants hiding the path. So we took trail 8 all the way down. Without any problem. But I guess in rainy weather conditions may be more difficult!!!

    A small path surrounded by different flowers, trees and vines, which gave a very pleasant feeling. It's like walking among a maintained mini forest. A short but enjoyable visit.

    We went by trail 10 and then left to the trail 6. On the plus, the trail 10 through the forest is nice and the views on the plantations and tea plantation at the end is very nice. Downsides: The alternative/shortcut to trail 10 is now also starting to get blocked. There is a sign now to get behind the fence and someone pointed us to go to the top where the uphill track starts. The entrance to trail 6 is now “blocked” by red-white tape, but of course you can easily go underneath it. It is slippery in some parts, around 3 time there is a distinct drop from the not that wide path, so you have to be careful. We started the track in the morning not to do it in the rain forecasted for the afternoon. When you get to the road from the first vegetable plantation, turn right (on maps me it was no longer market as trail 6) and you will reach a path on the left through a tea plantation. There is a sign with 4 RM payment that will be collected at the end ( maybe you can reach the road some other way than the tea house at the end). Be careful! At this path the will be a small concrete platform with a roof, there is a hornet’s nest there. On All trails I sow that many people were stung by them. I would try to leap by the streak to the tea plants and move around them to walk in a safe distance from this platform. They are aggressive and took them 3 sec to attack us, it good we were warned and quickly realised what was happening but we did get stung anywhay.

    The pathway from the road to the falls takes about fifteen minutes. In places the path is uneven or been lost in a landslide many years ago, other than that, the path is easy to walk on. I completed the journey without taking any water and I think most people won’’t find a need for it. The falls are lovely but what broke my heart was the volume of rubbish stuck in and about the river. I cannot understand why the local government doesn’t employ the locals to clean up their mess to enhance this tourist spot.

    A nice surprise to find such a vast range of different flowers. Expecting the usual small garden we paid the entrance (RM5) to go into the garden area. Very nice and the range of flowers is fascinating. Be aware that there are many steps so not really suitable for those with mobility issues.

    This is a good trek up and down steep jungle tracks. Quite difficult if wet (or for smaller people, due to the terrain).
    View is no particularly special as limited by trees (and probably mist).
    Enjoyable walk

    Hi there, I’m a full-time traveller that stayed twice in Cameron Highlands for several weeks. I walked every single trail here, and realized there’s an incredible amount of incorrect information and confusion out there. Times are incorrect, trail info incorrect (even on the signs), and people (incl. the local tourism office) seems to be unclear of trail names and which exist and which ones don’t.

    So, I made it my goal to walk each and every one of them and made many notes. A full hiking guide including an entirely updated map (+ other info on transportation / accommodation / food / other activities / traveling the Cameron Highlands for FREE) can be found on the site that is my username + /cameron-highlands (links will get blocked here).

    Here goes, TRAIL 6:

    Warning! There are two Trails 6, inconveniently enough. One is a connection-trail in between Trail 5 and 4 on the slopes of Gunung Berembun… one is on the exact other side of Tanah Rata in between the peak of Gunung Jasar (reached by Trail 10) and the Cameron Valley Tea Transplantation south of Tanah Rata.

    Gunung-Berembun-Trail-6

    Trail info: Connection trail in between the shelter reached by Trail 5, towards Trail 4. It’s a full-on jungle trail, and only interesting if you want to climb Gunung Berembun from Trail 4 or from the Forestry department in Brinchang. Suggested combination: 4-6-7 or 4-6-8-9, from any direction.

    Beginning & end: The shelter reached by Trail 5 towards Trail 4 / the Forestry Department.

    Experience / Level of difficulty: Intermediate. It’s an up-down-up-down-affair and definitely harder than Trail 3 and 4, but certainly doable. It’s a bush hike, so you won’t have any views on this one.

    Time: 30 minutes – going up / to connect with Trail 4 it’s an extra 12 minutes, the last part going down with a rope.

    Gunung-Jasar-Trail-6

    Trail info: This is the actual Trail 6, which is nevertheless absent on most maps. You can find it on Maps.me though, and I painted it on the map above for clarity. It’s not signposted, getting lost in the first stretch is very easy. Combine it with Trail 10.

    Beginning & end: From the peak of Gunung Jasar (reached by a part of Trail 10) towards the Cameron Valley Tea House, south of Tanah Rata. From there you can hitchhike back or grab a cab, as there are no sidewalks and traffic is not too considerate of pedestrians.

    Experience / Level of difficulty: This is a fantastic diverse hike, from the beginning until the end spectacular. Together with Trail 10 my favourite in the Cameron Highlands. I did it in 2011 and in 2019 again. I can’t believe it’s absent on most of the maps, I hope that doesn’t mean it’s going to disappear soon, just as other trails in Cameron Highlands did (due to ever-expanding real estate – serving a tourism crowd which they are simultaneously pushing away with these developments, as visitors come specifically for these trails!). I walked it in the pouring rain, making it incredibly slippery: I wouldn’t have survived without my hiking poles. I got lost and walked a part of the trail inside of the river until I found my way again… which you should avoid, needless to say. This route has plenty of views, forest parts, you’ll cross orang asli villages meeting friendly locals, and you’ll hike straight through the rolling tea slopes towards the Cameron Valley Tea House where you can reward yourself. The best of the Cameron Highlands combined!

    Time: 1:20hrs – including a faulty detour.

    It's an easy short walk down to Robinson falls which are well worth seeing. We then did walk 9a which wasn't easy. It is an easy trail to follow but parts of it are challenging due to a lot of fallen trees and overgrown plants. There are a lot of insects and spiders as should be expected in the jungle. There aren't any views along the way. It brings you out to a farm and power station and the path does get tougher towards the end. We walked back along path 9b which is steep but much shorter and an easier path to follow. I think coming down it would be difficult due to how steep it was in parts but going up it was fine. We didn't have any problems with dogs as mentioned previously. We did see a man with one little dog at one point but they were not bothered by us at all so hopefully this isn't a problem anymore! Overall the loop took us about 2.5-3 hours. I like nice views so this walk wasn't for me!

    This is a nice little fall, that you will not make your destination, but you might walk by eg. trekking jungle trek 4-6-5.
