What You Can Expect
Forest Reserve Institute of Malaysia (FRIM) in Kuala Lumpur offers visitors the opportunity of enjoying a walk through a Malaysian Rainforest to help increase your understanding of the forest ecosystem. This Forest Reserve is gazetted in 1926 and has a worldwide reputation as a centre of excellence in forestry research. Spread over 1,528ha, the FRIM Kepong is the first of its kind to contain both regenerated and secondary forest, which together hold hundreds of plant life species.
This privately guided tour provides the perfect opportunity to explore this unique slice of Malaysia. FRIM offers all walks of life a back-to-nature experience whilst enjoying the flora, fauna, landscapes and the remains of an old Orang Asli settlement. A waterfall and river cutting through this forest reserve adds serenity to this luxuriant landscape.
For the more adventurous traveller, check out the four jungle tracks: Keruing Trail, Rover Track, Engkabang Trail and Salleh Trail, all of which will take you through some of the most spectacular secondary forests in Malaysia. Walk through shady nature trails and arboretums, among them the Dipterocarp arboretum, a collection centre of living trees for botanical reference. The Bambusetum displays almost 30 species of local bamboo. Another highlights is the Canopy Walk above the treetops, if open to visitors at the time of visit. The number of people allowed on the canopy walk per day is limited o 250 people per day. The Canopy Walk is closed for maintenance every Monday and Friday.
Please note: Due to recent thunderstorm, Rainforest Canopy Walkway is closed effective 13 October 2015 until further notice, due to the extensive damages to the bridge. FRIM will conduct repair and maintenance work, and will only reopen the walkway after thorough safety assessments are conducted. Therefore, we wish to inform that this tour will only cover Nature trekking with a Rainforest Guide. No Canopy Walkway.
Amazing guide with fantastic knowledge
Great guide. Extremely experienced yet humble.
Our guide Charles was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the environment. He knew every tree and plant we walked by and shared his knowledge with us along the way! Very enjoyable hike and the canopy was a great experience!
Excellent Had a very Knowledgable tour guide makes all the difference in the world also great sense of humor be ready for some great excercise going up then down.
The guide was exceptional. The trip was really worth it. You must do this trip.
AMAZING. This is something that should not be missed. The tour guide was extremely informative (I think they all would be as they work for FRIM (Forest Reseach Institute Malaysia)). The canopy walk is lovely. Learning about the different trees was interesting too.
Great tour and great guide!
Our guide was amazing! He retired from the research facility in the forest so he was knowledgeable on the vegetation and knew all the beautiful spots in the rainforest. The canopy walkways was amazing, much better than zip lining :)
Great tour must do!!!!
NOTE: BRING BUG REPELLANT AND WEAR LONG SLEEVES AND LONG PANTS
Beautiful. Definitely need to have some fitness, and decent walking shoes with good tread. Watch out for the leeches but don't let them put you off doing this.
