This si the lush and verdant tropical jungle that I've always hoped to see. It was raining quite a bit on Penang, but I was determined to visit this park. I went in the afternoon hoping for a break in the weather which i got. When I registered to enter, I noticed that there were only 10 visitors that day, perfect ! When I got to the point where the trail forked, I went left into the forest instead of right where the boats to monkey beach were, as I wanted to experience the jungle without people.There you could see the canopy walk (unfortunately closed now). I sat for awhile and took in the sights,sounds and smells of this wonderful place.It was a great retreat from the high rises of the island.
