Being located at Bukit Lagong Forest Reserve, on the northern outskirt of Kuala Lumpur, the Forest Research Institute Malaysia is one of the topmost tropical forestry research institutes in the world. It is not very far from the Batu Cave. This wonderful forestry is situated at a height of around 300 meter from the sea level. The entire campus sprawls over an area of around 486 hectares. The major attraction of the institute is obviously the canopy walkway which was set to improve the scientific study of flora and fauna. This walkway system extents up to 150 meter and is poised between trees at around 30 meter above ground level. It has got four sections in total. At the One-Stop centre Canopy Walk tickets are available. So, one can collect the tickets from here. Take a map to the Canopy Walkway Trails to get a track of the direction properly. Each section of the trail is made of long metal ladders which are covered with wooden boards. These planks are balanced in a cradle of nylon ropes and fastened by steel cables enfolded around robust trees at each end. The complete suspension bridge is wrapped in netting to save the walkers from falling through the cracks. At a time, only four people are allowed to get onto the trail. The walkway does swing and shakes what creates an enchanting feel. At first everything may seem twisting upside down and trickling away the contents into the jungle below. Though, it is just a visual illusion. Slowly you would start enjoying the view surrounding the trail. Its simply breathtaking to enjoy the charm of nature from this strange vantage point. Those who have a kind of fear about this walkway, there is an alternating path for them which can take them round to the end-point of the walkway just to avoid going on it. After getting down from this walkway if you still have enough energy and time, just take the Waterfall Trail that will back down to the River Track. There are enormous amazing trails from this place to spend your leisure time and to make you feel fresh. The canopy walkway remains opened to the public from 9.30 am to 2.30 pm. Last registration time is at 1.30 pm. But on Mondays and Fridays, it remains closed. For advance booking you have to contact with FRIM One Stop Centre.
