“A journey back to nature”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

The climb up Bukit Nanas was breath-taking...a lot of natural flora & fauna to be seen. Loved how they took the effort to properly reserve the area.

“closed one more year ?”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Talked to one guard and he told us that It would be closed for one year. that would mean opening Nov 2013. But someone else was told Jan 2013. Maybe they don´t know themselves. The park Is nice to visit when you´re In the city, Nothing spectacular just nice.

“Nice place to kill your weekend with free entrance”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

First of all would like to announce that the Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve are closed for mantainance and will be operate again from next year January 2013. This is the information that i get from the guard who take care of the place. They did not published the announcement on the internet. We are lucky to been there due to there was a group of students organize their camping there. A nice place to kill your weekend with free entrance fee.

Gentle reminder:
1. Please wear sport shoe
2. Please bring a long your insect repellant.
3, Bring a bottle of water
4. If possible wear long sleve and tracsuit.

Tips: There are two entrance. One is at the Bukit Nanas monorail station and the other one is beside the KL tower. Both can enter. Recommend to start from the KL Tower due to this is their original starting point. The ending would be the Bukit Nanas monorail station..:

“An underrated attraction!”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

This is a green oasis in the center of Kuala Lumpur, the only virgin tropical rainforest left in the city. The flora and fauna are impressive, but be sure to use insect repellent in advance so that you don't get bitten by mosquitoes! We had no problems although we hadn't used any, but it's better to be safe than sorry I guess.

“Hidden secret”
Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

We went there in early August and it was fortunately open. The guards tried to tell us in Malay that something was closed and to take only one side of the path. We didn't really understand but went ahead anyway. It -is- a forest reserve. Not a theme park or manicured garden. So bring your insect repellant :)

We wanted to go to the Menara Towers through the reserve, so we kept to the brick path. Usually, you can reach the towers by a suspended bridge. The bridge was fun to climb. A little steep but mighty springy! Unfortunately the entrance was closed. We walked down and tried to exit on the other side of the reserve. That was locked, so we had to climb a gate.

We didn't see any monkeys, spiders, snakes or scorpions. At most a gecko. I think if you keep to the path you should be fine.

It's a nice break from the concrete jungle.
