Gunung Brinchang

Cameron Highlands

Gunung Brinchang is the second highest mountain in Cameron Highlands (after Gunung Irau) at 2,000 meters above sea level. The highest tarmac road in Malaysia leads up to the top, but its condition may be haphazard due to elements. Currently, the final leg of the road after the Mossy Forest is closed to visitors and the watchtower on the peak removed.

Alternatively, visitors can also hike up Gunung Brinchang through a jungle trail that starts near Brinchang town. The detour begins at left along the main road after the police station, leading to a gravel track that reaches a small settlement (actually an army quarters). Look for a signboard that indicates the start of jungle walk No 1; enter the forest, and you'll soon be on the 3km trail that leads up to the peak.
