At 6,666 feet above sea level, Gunung Brinchang is the highest peak in Malaysia which can be reached by a road vehicle.

The sunsets here are spectacular, so bring along your camera.
Visit the Mossy Forest, which is accessed via a boardwalk from the top of Gunung Brinchang. This is one of the best reserves in all of Western Malaysia, and its expansive coverage of moss, fern, lichen and orchids supports endemic fauna that only thrives in this elevated atmosphere. The trees here are covered with moss at the top, and they have remained undisturbed for centuries.
