What To Expect

FRIM -Forest Research Institute of Malaysia
Along the way you pass through typical Malay Villagers and scenes of friendly people going about their daily chores.

Once arrive at the forest institute , you will be introduced to the nature trekking guide. An introduction of the place and activities will be carried out immediately on arrival before proceeding with jungle trekking. Please wear a appropriate attire for this activities.

As you enter the trekking trails, you will be amazed by the arboretums or living museum of trees. Walk through the many nature trails and discover the many species of flora and fauna here.

Of particular interest is the "puzzle-like" pattern of the individual tree crowns separated by gaps and outlined against the sky. This phenomenon is called "Crown Shyness". The reason for its name is because the leaf tips of the Dryobalanops aromatica appear to be shy towards their own kind, hence forming the gap.

This tree is also known as kapur tree and has a nice-smelling exudate known as camphor, one of the main component of making ointment. The ointment is used for stomach massages after child delivery.

After about an hour in the jungle and enjoy learning new things, we packed up and return back to hotel.

• Please wear comfortable walking shoes, hat / cap & bring along bath towel and spare clothing in case you‘ll get wet or dirty
