KL Forest Eco Park

WP Kuala Lumpur

"The KL Forest Eco Park is one of the oldest permanent forest reserves in Malaysia. Formerly known as the Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve, the park is conveniently located beside the KL Tower and can be easily accessed via various modes of transportation, making it a popular ecotourism attraction."

 

Founded in 1906, the park covers an area of around 9 ha and is home to more than 200 tree species, including herbs, ferns, creepers, bamboos, and other tropical floras, and also 12 animal species, such as silver leaf monkeys and long-tailed macaques, as well as 25 species of birds. You can learn more about the various unique species of fauna here by visiting the herbal garden, situated near the park’s entrance.  

One of its main attractions is the spectacular 200 m Canopy Walk, an aerial bridge that is 21 m above the ground, providing a precious eye-level view of some of the oldest trees in the city, including Jelutong trees and Merawan Batu.  

Those who are more adventurous would be delighted to know that the park also offers a few hiking trails, such as Merbau trail (360 m), Jelutong trail (300 m), Penarahan trail and Arboretum trail. Along these trails, you might be able to catch a glimpse of some brightly coloured insects and butterflies, as well as bats and civet cats. 

Other than that, the KL Forest Eco Park also offers several interwoven tracks for jogging and walking, picnic benches, campsites, a playground and a wooden gazebo, as well as various activities and attractions for visitors of all ages.  

At the base of KL Tower, you will find the KL Upside Down House - a two-storey museum featuring bizarre arrangements of home furniture. They are, as the name suggests, entirely fastened upside down with impressive décor that will bewilder anyone who walks into the place.  

The KL Forest Eco Park opens daily including public holidays, from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm. Admission is free.  

How to get there

You can either take a public taxi, the KL Hop-On Hop-Off Double Decker tour bus service, or the Go KL City Bus to KL Tower. You can also take the LRT train (Kelana Jaya Line) and alight at the Masjid Jamek station, or take the KL Monorail and alight at the Bukit Nanas or Raja Chulan station.
