The mossy forest is a natural environment that grows only at the highest elevations of Cameron Highlands and other mountain ranges across Malaysia. At such heights, low-level clouds in the sky driven by winds, blanket the forests with constant mist and moisture.

The Mossy Forest in the Cameron Highlands of Malaysia is one of the oldest forests in the country (locals believe it existed in the time of dinosaurs). The ancient trees covered in moss from top to bottom, the labyrinth of branches, and a spongy floor with gnarly roots make it look magical—like a setting for a fairy tale.

It conjures up visions of the Fanghorn forest from Lord of the Rings. The canopy is so thick that sunshine filters through in rare bursts, and a mist hangs in the air. The forest is so quiet that when the wind blows through the trees, it feels like someone is whispering in your ear. The moist atmosphere is perfect for the growth of moss, ferns, lichens, and orchids, and it is home to a variety of montane creatures like snakes, frogs, birds, and mammals.

This moist tropical evergreen forest is also a rich repository for a varied set of montane creatures, encompassing insects, snakes, frogs, birds, and mammals unique to this chilly atmosphere. Visitors may explore the mossy forest through a boardwalk 2km before the peak of Gunung Brinchang, accessible by road from the Boh Tea Sungai Palas intersection.
