You want to do the canopy walk. This place was closed for a while but is now open again. Email them on their website at least a day in advance.

Great place for those who loves the outdoors. I'm new to mountain biking and I found part of the FRIM trail to be great fun and newbie friendly

We conducted tree planting events there. Their staff, Hazlin was extremely helpful. They are one of the few Malaysian Government Agencies that attempt to converse in English.

Be prepared to hike a bit, this offers a walk along suspension bridges through a triple canopy jungle forest. A cool quiet place to enjoy nature.

weekend morning walk will be good. Prepare to wear sporty attire because the path will be like climb a hill. You will see a hanging bridge on FRIM. Small waterfall and river good for kids to explore.

Where you can explore a forest within short time from a big city. You still can hear the sound of jungle but very near with the bustling city.

It was my first visit to forest and I loved it. Though the canopy walk was closed the guide took us to the almost half a km inside the forest and you can see kapur tree, different kind of timber and beautiful canopy.
