About
Check out KL Forest Eco Park, a lush forest reserve located in the heart of the city next to the KL Tower. This nine-hectare park is home to over 200 tree species and wildlife, like the silver leaf monkey and long-tailed macaque. A highlight is the Canopy Walk, which offers stunning views of the park's oldest trees, such as the Jelutong and Merawan Batu. There are also many hiking trails to explore. The best part? Admission is free. Visit in the morning for fewer crowds, and take advantage of the cool shade offered by the trees. You can easily explore the park as part of a city tour of Kuala Lumpur's best sights. – Tripadvisor

    Rainforest in the midst of a high rise city
    It was refreshing to visit a rainforest in the midst of a city of high rise buildings. The tree top walkway is fun and gives a good view of the rainforest; kids love this. We saw a troop of Macaques, which was wonderful. It’s best to wear walking shoes because of the uneven terrain. The site is rundown and would benefit from investment to upgrade it and thus attract more visitors. The entrance fee equates to approx £8; some would feel this is expensive, but we were ok to pay this, and spent a couple of hours exploring.

    Ripping-off foreign visitors
    It is a great idea to preserve a bid of rainforest amid the City and I always sent my foreign visitors there to enjoy the greenery and the canopy walk. It used to be free, but now they charge an entrance fee of MYR 40 to foreigners, which is daylight robbery. Even for a reasonable fee of maybe MYR 10 they would need to do much more to maintain the side. Be reasonable.

    To expensive, not updated but great canopy walk
    We visited with our two boys and they loved the canopy walkway. The place is not updated, no signs about the trees that you can actually read. The price is very expensive and they only take cash. We were allowed to go back down the trail after we had visited the tower at no extra cost and the kids was on the house because they didn’t have any change. On the way down we wanted to go another way, but ran in to two barking dogs. One of the dogs chased us up the stairs and the worker seamed to know about the dogs and scared the dog away, like he had done it before. A scary experience. The place need an update, which is a shame because it’s such an great contrast to the big city and has a lot of potential.

    KL Eco Park
    We visited the park in the morning. The canopy trail gave us good views of the park below and of the city skyline in places. Doesn’t take long to walk around - 30-50 minutes depending on your interest in trees. Just beware of the monkeys as when we were there one tried to attack a couple.

    Fun to walk over the hanging bridges, just next to the KL Tower
    A fun place to enjoy nature and walk over hanging bridges and just next to the KL Tower. The entrance is from the car park drop off of the KL Tower. The family enjoyed running along the hanging bridges to let off some steam after the KL Tower and enjoy the natural environment. Cost was MR40 per adult and free for kids. Mosquito repellent recommended.

    Now charging for entrance and it’s cash only
    We got to the entrance then found out that it was cash only for entry so we had to leave and find an atm. When we returned we were about to go in but a couple leaving said not to bother. It was very short and not worth the money. It used to be free but they now charge. So we cut our losses and spent the money on something else.

    Rustic shaded trails
    Excellent uncrowded and real park. Spend a couple of hours walking the shaded trails and wobbly overhead suspended walkways. If you like rustic this is about as good as it gets in central KL. Some steep ish sections are unavoidable so not for those with breathing issues etc.

    Good experience in the middle of KL
    We liked our walk in the park. Other reviews comment on the price, and yes, it might be a bit too pricy, but we still liked it. It is a part of jungle just in the middle of KL. There wasn't too many other guests, when we were there late in the afternoon, so we enjoyed walking around in the last part of the KL forest. It is such a contrast to the busy part of KL. We will recommend it. It is isomething different. NB! Signs could have been better, but you just walk up to the KL Tower - then it is easy to find at the top.

Rip off, foreign tourists have to pay RM40 for a 30 min walk. Not worth it. Just a park, nothing special about it. Better option is KL botanical garden, diverse, big, well maintained and free.

Nice bit of rainforest in the middle of the city. Loved the canopy walks and there are also nice, easy hiking trails.

This is very over priced for what is really a city park. A number of the pathways needed maintenance. Some other travelers we met also remarked that this was over priced, especially as it used to be to be free, even then we wouldn’t recommend.

I felt secure to stroll because there were forestry students around. Even though the park is modest, the humidity is really uncomfortable. After the nighttime shower, there were insects.

Take the bus (or a taxi) for the trip up if you don't want to start your adventure hot and sweaty. The entrance to the park is just down the road from KL Tower, and it's a steep climb by foot to get there.

Entrance for non Malaysians is MYR40. Hopefully they're using that income to fix the place up, because there's a lot of stuff that's in a sorry state of disrepair.
