    Mossy Forest and Butterfly Farm

    February 24, 2020 in Malaysia ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    We had a full day touring the highlands today, with a second night at the same hotel.

    Our day began with a drive to the Mossy Forest, on a road not for the fainthearted! Apart from being steep and winding, large sections of the road were in disrepair, and most of the journey was single lane - on blind corners drivers sound their horn on approach and if they hear a return beep, someone has to pull across to let the other pass.

    The Mossy Forest is a high altitude region where low cloud means the area is usually covered in mist and moisture, and today was no exception - the view from the top was non-existent, but we found the path was closed just after the peak because of recent rains... all in all, not the most successful outing 🙄

    By the time we journeyed down the mountain the weather had cleared slightly, so we stopped at some of the lookouts again to view over the tea plantations.

    We had lunch in Brinchang, then visited a butterfly farm, strawberry plantation, cactus outlet, local market, waterfall and Buddhist temple on our way back to Tanah Rata for the evening.
