Canopy Walkway

Last modified: May 3, 2017

CLOSED CANOPY WALKWAYLocated at Bukit Lagong Forest Reserve at about 300 meter above sea level, this famous attraction was constructed in 1992 for the purpose of scientific study of flora and fauna. This walkway system spans for 150 meter and is suspended between trees at approximately 30 meter above ground level. This walkway system and platforms are vantage points to experience a panoramic view of the forest and Kuala Lumpur area from a distance. The canopy walkway is opened to the public from 9.30 am to 2.30 pm, with the last batch of visitors to go up at 1.30 pm. It will be closed on Friday.

The walkway was closed from 13 October 2015 after being damaged during a thunderstorm and reopened in July 2016 upon completion of repair work. To ensure public safety and sustainability of the walkway system, FRIM has decided to reduce the carrying capacity from 250 to 60 visitors per day.

For this activity, a FRIM nature guide must be engaged by any individual or group (each guide can only bring a maximum of 25 pax). You may decide to share a guide with others (and split the fee of RM 127.20), an option available only at 10.30 am and 12.00 pm, or hire a guide for yourself or your group at full cost.

Those interested to visit the canopy walkway must make prior booking by email to frim_enquiry@frim.gov.my before coming to FRIM. The details required are your full name, number of pax, mobile number, date of visit and time of arrival. Please note that reservation for any activities can only be made during office hours, Monday to Friday, from 8.00 am to 4.30 pm, except on public holidays.

Operating hours are subject to weather conditions. The walkway will be closed when it rains. It will be re-opened within two (2) hours after the rain has subsided. All visitors including those interested to visit the canopy walkway are advised to check the Air Pollution Index (API) (http://apims.doe.gov.my/v2/). We strongly advise the public against jogging or undertaking any strenuous outdoor activity when the API is above 100. The canopy walkway will also be closed when the 7.00 am API readings, posted on the abovementioned website, show above 150 for Batu Muda, Kuala Lumpur.

 

Please be informed that FRIM has announced the permanent closure of the walkway effective 30 June 2017. Continuous inspections by FRIM arborists indicate a decline in the health of the walkway supporting trees that may affect the bridge structure. Therefore, with a heavy heart, FRIM decides to close it for the public safety as well as for the healing of the supporting trees and the regeneration of the surrounding forest.
