Walk at FRIM
74-year-old Forest Research Institute of Malaysia in Kepong, Kuala
Lumpur is undoubtedly one of the leading institutions in tropical
forestry research in the world.
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. FRIM is a
truly educational place for children as well as great weekend outing
place for the entire family.
For the more adventurous ones, check out the four jungle tracks:
Keruing Trail, Rover Track, Engkabang Trail and Salleh Trail, all of
which will take visitors through some of the spectacular secondary
forests in Malaysia.

If you want to seek additional adventure, why not try the
fragile-looking Canopy Walk, which is located 30m above the ground.
This 200m canopy walkway is built on tree tops and is the third of
its kind in Malaysia. Those interested in experiencing the canopy
walk should preferably make prior arrangement because the number of
people allowed on the canopy walk per day is limited to 250 people.
At FRIM, camping is available for those wanting to experience a
night in the wilderness but prior permission is required.
