“A totally new experience!”
I visited the Tree Top Walk with my family. I didn’t have much hopes for this attraction because it wasn’t well publicized. Guess I was wrong.
Walking on top of trees with nature singing to you, it was a rare experience for a city girl. We had a lot of fun all in all. Definitely a place for nature lovers.
My dad had fun studying the floras. My mom was busy trying to distract herself from the height(it was reaaally high up).

“Adventurous and yet enjoyable. Perfect for nature enthusiast.”
Wonderful recreational park at the heart of kulim. Nice place to visit and to enjoy your weekends.
The place is excellent with flaura and fauna all over besides water activities of your own.
The suspension bridge is really high up and those who are afraid of height may have problems taking the trek.

“A Great Place for Nature Lovers and Adventure Seekers”
This recreational park is located about 30km from Kulim, Kedah. My better half and I were pleasantly surprised when we arrived there. We were greeted by lush greenery, cool fresh air and harmonious sound of water rushing down the rivers.
The main attraction must be the 925 metre long Tree Top Walk. We were told it is the longest canopy walk in the world that is built with galvanized steel. We paid RM10 for the entrance ticket and it was worth the money, to be able to walk above the tall trees instead of below them.
We felt safe and secure on the solid walkway which was of various height above the ground level. The view of the rapids below was spectacular too. Along the walkway, there were small information board describing the different types of trees and plants but unfortunately many of them were faded and blurred.
The canopy walk is open from 8.30am to 5.30pm daily.
Overall, this is a nice place to escape the hustle and bustle of the cities or for a change of our daily life scenery.

“A great place to learn about nature”
The walk on the tree-top steel bridge was fantastic. Our guests were amazed. Something that more people should try.
There was also not enough literature/information on the trees that we walked passed. Only their names. It was a little embarrassing when our guests noted this. Would be good if the authorities made a greater effort to me more visitor friendly.
