Who would have thought that the steel and concrete mecca of Kuala Lumpur (KL) was home to one of the oldest permanent forest reserves in Malaysia?
The Forest In The Concrete Jungle
Located mere steps away from the world-famous KL Tower lies a curious scenery — a viridescent forest right in the heart of the city!
KL Forest Eco Park is a popular ecotourism destination among visitors seeking a short refuge from the city. The site serves as a natural green lung for the surrounding metropolitan area and is also an easy hike through its resident rainforest.
Plus, there’s also the added advantage of getting a bird’s eye view of the KL skyline from the park’s canopy walk. The 200-metre high wood-and-steel bridge presents a rare opportunity to be among the shrubbery, while also admiring KL’s unique architecture — indeed, a harmonious melding of nature and the artificial.
