Beautiful and good place to visit if you're into exploring, hiking and nature. Make sure to wear comfortable sneakers or joggers as you need to walk alot in this place. Have a water bottle handy and dress light as it gets very hot.

You want to do the canopy walk. This place was closed for a while but is now open again. Email them on their website at least a day in advance.

Sorry to say that the canopy walk has been closed since 30th June 2017. FRIM has decided to close it once and for all to allow the supporting trees to heal and regenerate.
