Entering the magical Mossi forest

The jungle of Mossi It extends to the feet of Gurung Irau and Gunung Binchang. The highest mountains of the Cameron Highlands in Malaysia at more than 2,000 meters high. The enormous roots of the trees create a false terrain of such thickness that we can walk on them despite being a considerable distance from the real ground.

It is a jungle in good condition that has barely been exploited by man. Through the jungle of Mossi we can do a trekking to get into its thicket, admire its huge vines and learn about medicinal plants. These include the kacip fatimah which would be the natural viagra used in Borneo and Malaysia. Other plants work as natural paracetamol for centuries and others help remedy stomach problems or insomnia.

Flowers in the jungle of Mossi, Cameron Highlands

Touring this magical stage at the foot of Gunung Binchang we enter a sanctuary dedicated to the oldest nature on the planet. Drops of dew on large cobwebs, wild orchids, plants and insectivorous flowers on a mantle of moss that covers the roots and trunk of ancient trees. The smell of dampness, the peace of the place and the feeling of returning to a place that we should not have abandoned centuries ago. The fog usually takes over the jungle and a magical sensation takes over the jungle. Touring the floating jungle of Mossi forest You feel a privileged person who has had the fortune of seeing a small part of the world that has hardly suffered the tyranny of the human being.
