In order to ensure the safety of all tourists, preserve the area’s unique flora and fauna, and give you the best possible walking or hiking experience, there is a limit of visitors allowed for each slot.

This park is a 53-acre secondary rainforest that is a component of the Bukit Tabur and Klang Gates Quartz Ridge networks and regenerates organically.
In the first phase, visitors will be able to explore 17 acres of the park and walk the 2-kilometer trail to the viewpoint point, which provides a spectacular panorama of Kuala Lumpur’s most famous landmarks.
As you make your way through the engrossing hiking trail that loops around the forest, you’ll get to know mother nature and be enthralled by the fascinating geological features that are scattered throughout.
Using proper clothing and footwear will greatly enhance your hiking experience. Respect the rules and regulations at all times and maintain awareness of your immediate surroundings.
