The boardwalk provides a good view of the Mossy forest, and a series of boardwalks and steep, short staircases takes you through the main attraction, an amazing close up view of the trees at eye level engulfed in moss, orchids and huge pitcher plants. There are great views across the highlands if the weather is clear, but even glimpses of the views through breaks in low cloud are worthwhile and the cloud rolling across the forested hills is hauntingly spectacular in itself. At an elevation of 2000m, the forest is often cool, damp and cloudy.

The road up from Brinchang has excellent views of BOH tea plantation. The road is not very well sign posted and there are few places to go wrong. The turn off from the main road is marked with a large sign to Mossy Forest, Boh Tea Plantation and Gunung Brinchang. A left turn amongst the tea bushes is signposted and takes you towards Mossy Forest, and shortly after this you need to take the LEFT, unmarked fork in the road. The road is narrow with few passing places but very little traffic.

There is a trail from the end of the boardwalk into the forest to neighbouring peaks. If you want to follow this a guide is advisable- maps of trails sold locally are not detailed and are probably highly misleading. It can be quite muddy if you leave the boardwalk, so take some old shoes and be prepared for some slippery adventuring.
