A fantastic experience. Driver arrived on time at our hotel and explained things of interest along the way. Our local guide Han was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. He looked after us exceptionally well - even to the extent of running back to the main office in order to collect walking sticks for us. The scenery was amazing and well worth the climb. Our advice - wear good walking shoes for both the climb up and the walk down. Put this on your list of "Must Do" in KL.

A fantastic tour and guide (Fockhans,hoping I got the spelling right for his name ) Awesome scenery and well worth doing but a lot of hard work
and sweating before you reach the tree top walk and then you have to come down..........
Make sure you are reasonably fit and able to climb over rocks etc. Don't wear warm clothes but make sure you have very good walking shoes and you take insect repellant and plenty of water We
had a great experience doing this and we are both in our 50s so we are proud of ourselves in what we acheived and it showed us what you can do when you put your mind to it and push youselves that little bit more We even chose the harder way down but that's because we felt comfortable with our guide Many thanks to our fantastic young guide for all his help as this is something we can tell our grandchildren when they're older what nan and pop achieved in their 50s (and just a tad overweight too)

My guide Farhan in the Rainforest was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. He had a sincere interest in his work which I was curious about and had all my questions answered. if he didn't know the answer to something he told you so and this honesty was welcomed. I highly recommend this tour as a chance to see lots of different vegetation as well as some monkeys. The Canopy Walkway was fantastic with the views it offered. Just make sure you were some good running shoes or hiking shoes/boats as the grade to it can be a little steep. All in all, a great tour.

Laurie D's review from Nov 2010 summarizes my experience as well. Driver did not do much other than transport, but the FRIM guide was extremely knowledgable and well-trained. Since I went during the rainy season, I wisely brought hiking boots and insect repellent. Like several other reviewers have commented, this hike is pretty strenuous. Before it is all said and done, you will climb and descend over 500 meters vertical through muddy trails and over a multitude of slick, rocky steps. You should be in good physical shape for this hike. I did the Batu Caves tour the same day and my quads were pretty sore the next day!
