Gunung Brinchang is the second highest mountain in Cameron Highlands after Gunung Irau, at 2000 meters high. The highest tarmac road in Malaysia leads up to the top, but its condition is often haphazard (especially the later portion), due to the copious amounts of rain and moisture. When not assailed by heavy mist, the watchtower at the peak provides an incredible view of towns, valleys and mountains stretching towards the horizon. This makes Gunung Brinchang a popular viewpoint for visitors to admire the scenery and landscapes of Cameron Highlands. The fabled mossy forest also grows at its highest elevations, with a boardwalk to explore this fascinating biotope.
