Forest Research Institute of Malaysia (FRIM)

FRIM offers a back-to-nature experience and the remains of an old Orang Asli settlement. The waterfall and river cutting through this forest reserve adds serenity to this luxurious landscape.

There are four jungle tracks: Keruing Trail, Rover Track, Engkabang Trail and Salleh Trail, all of which will take visitors through some spectacular secondary jungle.

The Canopy Walk, which is located 30m above the ground, offers the perfect vantage point from which to observe birds and tropical canopy flora. Those interested in experiencing the canopy walk should make prior arrangement because the number of people allowed on the canopy walk per day, is limited to 250 people.

At FRIM, camping is available for those wanting to experience a night in the wilderness but prior permission is required.
