A walk through Mossy Forest reveals a chilly, misty landscape with an otherworldly atmosphere. Existing only at high elevations, where the land is permanently covered in low-level clouds, mist, and moisture, this rainforest of ferns, moss, lichen, and orchids supports a variety of creatures, including snakes, frogs, birds, and mammals. Stick to the wooden walkway as it bends around the landscape, and snap atmospheric photos of the thick grey mist hugging low-hanging vines. Hold on to the safety rope as the path is slippery when wet. Plan your visit to Mossy Forest and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Cameron Highlands trip planner.

As they say this is one of oldest forest in the world, however we didn't get a chance to see it completely as due to rain there were damp mud all over place and you are unable to walk further. But still we get a chance to see it small enough and it was good. All trees covered in green algae type thing and ferns were growing on stem, it was pretty.
Totally worth the visit to Cameron Highlands. Amazing untouched nature. Make sure you book a guided tour otherwise you will miss out on a lot of interesting information. The main trail is closed at the moment (January 2019) but will reopen soon. There is an alternative trail available, but you will get dirty (its not too bad though)
