Canopy Walk, Forest Research Institue Malaysia FRIM

Brought my kids to Canopy Walk in one of the weekend where this place is just 30mins drive from my house. A 200m long, the canopy walkway was constructed in 1992 for scientific studies of above ground flora and fauna. It was built 30m above ground level.











kids also enjoyed at nearby waterfall


saw a huge Millipede !

All your pictures bring back memories to me about my camp at recreation jungle in Melaka long long time ago. It was fun with all kinds of trees, small creatures, and never forget about those wild monkeys..;p
Nice place you've been..:)

This is 10mins away from my house and everytime I go back Malaysia, I'll accompany my parents here for their weekly jog, thrice a week. It's very tiring but good exercise. The canopy is not operating for everytime I am there, I dunno why!!!

looks like a very good place to bring the kids for some outdoor fun for once as they are always hiding in their rooms playing pc games!

It looks like nice family fun. Very nice photos. We have a canopy walk close to us, and often when family is in town we visit. We don't have waterfalls though, pretty flat here.

FRIM - this brought back some memories for me. More than 10 years ago, I visited FRIM, trying to understand the use of rubber wood for particle wood construction... Malaysia still has alot of rugged nature all around you - in Singapore, we have to guard the handful of patches diligently.

Now this sounds like a great way to get back to nature. Great photos.
