Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife on the nature trails. Then enjoy a bird's-eye-view of the trees by crossing the Canopy Walkway. This unique conservation facility is located 20 kilometers from Kuala Lumpur.

Many activities can be done here. Walk canopy is a must. And you must come early during weekend otherwise you cant hike.

Came here to join biking with some friends. Place is large, quite nice. I don't get why foreigners have to pay more for entrance compared to locals though.

Planning on visiting FRIM over the week end with friends and families.. Is it advisable doing the nature trek with kids below 4 years.. I was the canaopy walk is not advisable but just want check how hard the treks are and whether you think kids could attempt even with us carrying them part of the distance. If its hard feel it might be a waste of the trip for all.

RM5 per car & RM1 per person (Malaysian citizen). Additional charges for Canopy walkway.
Would it be suitable to bring young children there? I have a 5 year old and a 2 year old.
