“Average hike, if you have the time to kill”

Cameron Highlands Trail No. 10
Reviewed 27 August 2013

Trail No.10 was poorly marked. It can be just the words "Trail No.10" painted on a rock, or spray painted on a tree. It was an average hike. Lots of over grown grass. You may occasionally see some wild pitcher plants, which was interesting. We knew we reached the peak because there was a broken yellow sign, half hanging on the pole that reads "Gunung Berembun".It was graffitied by hikers who made it to the top! The view at the top of the mountain was great except for the power lines and power towers erected along the way.

The start of the trail can be found if you walk to the edge of town and walk through Tan's Camellia garden (signposted on the right). You actually have to walk through the garden or you won't find the start of it. You go up up up sometimes on hands and knees and in stifling heat, sweat pouring off you until 1.5hrs later yuo get to the top. Best to come back down trail 10 too as there are road works which prevent you from doing a circular route.

Signage is the biggest thing letting the Cameron highlands hikes down. We think we followed route 10 and then route 12 but could not swear we did. Route 10 is actually signed as route 11 on the early part of the hike. Once you hit route 10 you will head up hill up a steepish path using roots almost like a stair case to reach the summit. The views from the top of the hill make it well worth the climb. The climb is not easy but not as tough as climbing route 1.

From the summit it is hard to find the path to route 12 - we tried a few. Head through the long grass following the path and to your left you will see some rocks that you can climb up and from there you can reach route 12. There may be another way but we did not find it? From there you can follow the trail which leads back to tanah rata.

This trail's entrance is located inside Camelia's Garden behind Oly Apartment. It is not easy to find as there is no signage to mark the trail's entrance. The sign is erected about 50 meters away out of sight amongst the foliage. The trail itself is mostly a narrow ledge surrounded by thick forest so there isn't any view until perhaps when you reach the peak of Gunung Jasar, which is the end point of this trail and which, according Camelia's owner will take about 1 hour of slow hiking to reach. We didn't go all the way so i can't confirm this.

If you're a nature lover i suppose the lack of view won't matter, however if you are looking for a picturesque hike, you'll probably be disappointed.

we picked this one due to the beautiful pictures from the reviews of this trail. non of them were true. it's just a jungle/forest walk with no nice views. very easy to get lost as it's not marked well. the amazing views can be seen from the main road before entering tanah rata. do not trust the reviews. the walk itself was hard but nice. you really do need proper shoes as the path is really steep half of the time and slippery.
