We had to walk about 550m before we reached the first canopy walk station. It was quite a challenge to climb up the trail especially for some of us who have knee problem. The canopy walk was a good experience for us to overcome our fear of heights. There were 5 parts of the canopy walk with different length. The last walk was the longest. The view was amazing with many tall trees.

It is a privilege to be in such a lovely forest and be able to walk thirty meters over the tree line and see below most trees. You enter the hot springs park and have to buy a ticket for this even if you decide it’s so unnatural that you don’t want to dip your tootsies into the foot tubs. (To be fair, there are also two small cold tub seas where you can immerse yourself). Then you have to buy another ticket for the canopy tour and pay a MR$5 fee if you want to take photos from the canopy. After a ten minute steep walk uphill, you reach the canopy walk area. Climb up a few stairs and you will see four canopy walks. Six people allowed on a canopy walkway at a time. Try and make sure you don’t end up behind a large group of people who are scared. Otherwise you could be waiting 30-60 minutes! The fourth walkway is short but wobbly. Best way to walk is to hold the railings and take long, slow strides and keep a low center of gravity. Enjoy!

I highly recommend visiting Canopy walkway to step on 4bridges stretched above 30 meters above the ground just next to the tops of trees of rainforest. To enter the canopy you need to purchase a ticket to whole Park(15RM) and another , direct one to canopy(5RM and extra for 5 for camera...) or package with butterfly(7RM- satisfactory and colorful). The canopy walkway is in Poring Hot Springs which are accessible within bus from Ranau( i think only by cab for around 20RM per person). I traveled with fiancee from Kota Kinabalu( we took a 2hour bus to Ranau from Padang Merdeka). The buses from KK to Ranau go every hour from 7am. If you arrive at 8.20 you will wait until it is 9.00 even if the bus is almost totally full. The last bus from Ranau to KK goes at 17.30. So be prepared to come back from Poring by taxi(25min) before the bus to KK leaves.

A short walk from the hot spring area takes you to the ticket counter and another short hike to the starting platform.You walk about 40 meters above ground on a bouncy,swinging suspension bridge. Take your time to observe the flora and fauna of the tropical forest. You choice to either face your fear of heights or stay away.

It was a very enjoyable walk for me through the trees and being in the midst of nature. I went relatively early in the morning, which was a good thing as there were not many people yet so one really gets to appreciate the unspoiled nature before the expected crowds. Walking through the canopy may not be for those with fear of heights so do take note. I think the crowds started streaming in as I was leaving about 11ish in the morning.
