sort of. One such place is the Forest Research Institute of
Malaysia or FRIM for short. This is located in Kepong and is
truly a paradise for nature lovers.

from the city centre.

Even the road leading towards Frim is canopied and bordered by greenery, promising nature lovers of better things to come.

Established in 1929, Frim was initially set up as a forest reserve meant for research.

However, through the years its many attractions have drawn visitors from all over the world into its green and tranquil domain.

One of its popular attractions is the Canopy Walkway, which is often termed “A Magical Walk in the Tree Tops”.

The Sg Kroh waterfall inside Frim’s grounds is open to the public for picnics. Keruing Trail.
