The Forest Research Institute of Malaysia (FRIM) just opened the doors of their latest project to the public for the first time.

Located at the Kepong Botanic Gardens, Forest Skywalk is the newest place in KL to offer panoramic views of the city.

Also known as Jejantas Rimba, the new attraction is 18m to 50m high and 250m long. It allows visitors to walk amid a forest canopy while enjoying breathtaking views.

Try to spot famous landmarks such as the KL Twin Towers, KL Tower, and Tun Razak Exchange Tower.

If you're feeling adventurous, scale up the 50m watch tower for an even better view

Access to the watchtower will cost an extra RM5 per person on top of Forest Skywalk's entry fee which is RM15 for adults with MyKad, RM40 for non-MyKad holders, RM8 for students aged seven to 17, and RM10 for senior citizens.

Do note that children below the age of 13 are not permitted to go up the watchtower and those below six years old are not allowed on the Forest Skywalk altogether.

While we're still under restrictions due to COVID-19, there is a limit for the number of visitors allowed on the Forest Skywalk at one time

For now, Forest Skywalk permits entry of 400 visitors over three different sessions throughout the day.

The 8.30am and 10.30am sessions are limited to 150 visitors while the 2pm session is limited to only 100 visitors. 

Forest Skywalk follows a first come, first served basis and numbers are distributed 30 minutes before each session using a coupon system. Therefore, we suggest that you arrive early to avoid being denied entry.

They are open daily so just choose a day and go ajak your friends!
