Forest Research Institut Malaysia ( FRIM )

Went to Forest Research Institut Malaysia ( FRIM ) in Ulu Kepong today...after about 10 odd years of no visit..

My goodness, the place has changed a lot....changed for the better no doubt...

Entrance to FRIM cost RM5 per vehicle and RM1 per person which is used for the upkeep of the area. Must admit that the landscaping is superb and amenities are excellent.

Wanted to go for the Jungle Canopy Walk...a 20 meter high x 200m long walkway located in the Bukit Lagong Forest Reserve but heavy rain put a damper on our plans.

Ended up by taking the family to Sungai Kroh Waterfall for some fun in the rain and a picnic lunch.

Below are some photographs that was taken at the Falls....lighting was poor ( lucky I brought my f2.8 along ) and I forgot to bring my tripod ( must remember next time ) resulting in handheld shots under trying conditions..aaaargg!! therefore, please excuse the quality of the photographs..


I have already planned my next trip there for some picnicking and nature photography.

Looked like it was a fun trip :)


Despite living so close to the place, I've never been there myself. Probably need to go visit it in the near future.
