Batu CavesSilver Leaf Monkeys  Canopy-Walkway in FRIM
Canopy Walk

Canopy Walkway in Forest Institute of Malaysia (FRIM), about 85 years ago, the present institute grounds were little more than abandoned tin mine pits, vegetable gardens and shrubby forest. Since 1926, foresters and scientists have nurtured the forest back to life into a serene forest with inspiring trees.

Few other forests in the world have been studied as extensively as the FRIM Forest Science Park. As the planted trees matured, a wealth of knowledge of their growth and forest ecology has been accumulated. Today, FRIM has a wide reputation as a centre of excellent forestry research.

Apart from the scientific value of the forest, shady park-like arboreta as well as nature trails invite you for leisure and educational walks. There is a diversity of animal life, of which birds and squirrels are most readily seen.

Please note that the Canopy is Closed on every Monday & Friday for maintenance.

Batu Caves

Batu Caves first discovered over 125 years ago, Batu Caves has never ceased to attract visitors. Only 13km from Kuala Lumpur's central business district and just outside the city limits, these famous caverns are easily accessible. Formed within the framework of an imposing limestone outcrop about 400 million years ago, Batu Caves actually consists of three main caves and several smaller ones. The best known of these is Temple or Cathedral Cave.first discovered over 125 years ago, Batu Caves has never ceased to attract visitors.

Formed within the framework of an imposing limestone outcrop about 400 million years ago, Batu Caves actually consists of three main caves and several smaller ones. The best known of these is Temple or Cathedral Cave.

Temple Cave has a ceiling looming over 100 meters overhead and features ornate Hindu shrines. To reach it, one has to climb 272 steps, a feat performed by many Hindu worshippers on the way to the caves to offer prayers to their revered deities.

Leaf Monkeys

Silver-Leaved Monkeys, Several families of Silver-Leafed Monkeys and Long-Tailed Macaques hang around here for peanut handouts from visitors. The Silver-leafed babies have golden fur as compared with the adults of dull-ashen grey. These Monkeys are a delight - they are gentle and seem to always have a thank you for every morsel of food given. The long-tailed macaques, on the other hand, are generally a little more mischievous and if you turn your back for a second - you'd never know what they would do. Always be careful when feeding the monkeys. Although they have had many interactions with humans, we must remember that they are wild and wild animals tend to be erratic sometimes
