“Wonderful experience for rookie trekkers”

Cameron Highlands Trail No. 10
Reviewed 10 April 2018

We had a wonderful morning trekking in trail no 10. Contrary to what the others said we found the trail reasonably well marked and had no trouble finding it. Even at places where we were unsure , some kind hearted trekkers and locals had put up small boards or strung a ribbon across so that we would take the right path. We said a silent thank you to those who did this and went on ahead. It was reasonably challenging considering that we are not professional trekkers. The place was awesome and the rain gods for once were taking a nap. The clouds also decided to keep away making the day just right for us. The high point of is was a small snake we found right in the middle of the path deathly still. A kind hearted dog who followed us and sensed our fear stood right over this snake and helped us navigate this. We followed the trail 6 on he way down. This was challenging in places and our major fear was snakes having already encountered one. The path itself was very slippery and steep. Many would find navigating this a problem. It hits a stream on the way down which had crystal clear water where we washed our muddy hands and splashed some more on our faces. This had a log placed over it and setting seemed straight out of a movie set. Overall, I would strongly recommend although a group would give a sense of comfort. There are markings on path 10 up till the peak of Mount Jasar but there are none on path 6, so we used an application maps.me. It was very helpful and clearly showed us the right path.

We thought this would be a difficult climb but it was just right. Enough challenge to feel a sense of achievement. I agree with person who recommend the maps.me app. It was a big help. Beautiful scenery. Only ugly at the end by power station.

2 tips that have not been mentioned in previous reviews:
1/ use "maps.me" application, it can be used offline thus will not ruin you, it is free and above all it enables you to follow the tracks with extreme precision. This great help for the 2nd tip:
2/ when up in the summit Gunung Jasar, rather than continue on track 10, you should consider to tack track 6 (take left, i.e. South). There is no signs as this track is officially not to be used (does not even appear on the maps of CH sold in every shop) but it is worth it!! It's true that the track is in poor condition, lots of herbs, there are 200 meters down the hill that are very slippery (I would NOT recommend to take it if it rained the day before) but you'll quickly reach decent track tat goes through vegetables plantations, goes close to small villages and then cross very nice tea plantations with amazing views. Cannot be missed but again, have your maps.me with you to stay on the track. The track ends at Cameron Valley tea house and it's perfect place to enjoy the view while having a tea.

The first part of the climb was nice and had some great trekking trough the jungle. First part of the path was well marked however we got lost on the top at the electricity pole and ended up taking the road down. Later we heard you have to cross the concrete part of the pole to the other side for the rest of the path. This was not so well marked.

Trail description was described well by Jessica O review. I would like to add , bring sufficient water for 3 - 4 hrs hike in the forest. Also bring head cover, umbrella or a wide brim hat for the final 2 km walk on paved road from the TNB sub-station to Tanah Rata Police Station. A tip : go straight to the main gate of the sub-station after coming out of the forest trail. If you come out of the trail from the rear of the sub-station, walk on the left side of the sub-station to the main gate. That will avoid the guard dogs of the veggie plot. Overall, an exciting, fun trail though some parts of the trail at the top are not that well defined.
