“Easy jungle trekking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

the place is close to KL, a favorite place for the licals to do jogging. there are many posibilities but the most spectacular in a 2 h long rekking that includes a canopy walk.

A lot of children are there so it is safe for them.

Do not forget to have water and food with you as once you start ascending,there are no places to buy them.

“Nice jungle an hour from KL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

I did not expect much of it but it was worth to go. With son of 11 much better spend day in nice forest than in KL. Specially the canopy walk we really liked.
Use KTM to Kepong sentral. Taxi there 5-10 RM.

“Bring your tennies!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

I didn't think I would get that much of a work out at FRIM, but the trails proved to be a bit rugged and so beautiful. It's refreshing to get out of the city and experience lush tropical greenery and the sound of bird calls. We made it up to the canopy walk, which was on a very rough trail. It's definitely not for the faint of heart or weak of legs! And make sure you buy your canopy walk tickets at the office at the base, as they can't be purchased at the canopy itself.

There are a few cheap restaurants near the picnic area - or you can bring in your own picnic lunch for that matter. There are also bicycles for rent, but I believe only on Sundays - when we checked late morning, the bikes were already all rented out.

Overall, a great place to spend a weekend morning!

“Hidden Gem in a mystical reserved forest!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

If you ever come visit Malaysia, be sure to put this place as your must visit places. Just beside the hustle and bustle of the urban sprawl, this place is stocked with greenery, nature firendly activities such as canopy walk, waterfall, malay tea house etc. They say when you put human and nature together, only wonderful things can happen.be sure to feast your eyes on the natural tropical climate and smell of the forest. Nothing beats that! :)
