Travelogue: Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM)


After visiting Batu Caves we decided to go to Forest Research Institute Malaysia. If you have been reading my blog, you know that I used to favor mountains and forests over beaches. It was only recently that I started to fancy beaches than mountains. Anyway, we thought the area would be a fantastic location to take pictures and also would be a nice sort of getaway as it looks promising of fresh air and cool breezes. We also read in other blogs that going to the canopy walkway is a good idea. We were delighted when we got there because it lived up to our expectations of fresh air and cool breezes. There were also hardly any tourists there though we did see a few hikers, so it was a quiet respite. But - we were so wrong for not researching more about the place beforehand. Little did we know that the hike was intense and we were both wearing the wrong outfits. Other hikers were wearing hiking clothes and no bag at all. We were the only ones wearing skirts and carrying huge bags.

Yes, FRIM is a nice place to take pictures but it is not for the faint heart. If you are into hiking, you would definitely enjoy going here. But if you are not physically fit for such activity, I wouldn't recommend going here. We weren't able to finish the walkway because it started getting dark halfway and the trail was sloping at a very steep angle and it was soil that could be very slippery when it tarts to rain so we decided to go back down. It would have been nice to see the canopy walkway but we had to think about our safety first. Also, the trail was getting steeper and steeper and both of us were carrying huge bags (because of our huge water bottle) and it was already becoming too difficult for us to walk. Maybe if we were in the right outfit, we would have been able to finish the walkway and reach the summit. Maybe next time.

Still, I hope you enjoy the pictures I was able to take.
