The 200m aerial bridge or better known as Canopy Walk, is the best vantage point in the park overlooking part the KL skyline, with KL Tower prominently features most of the time. The highest point of the Canopy Walk is at 21 metre.
Here the trees still stand tall, cicadas still buzz loudly all day long, and save for the sounds of the traffic outside, you would be forgiven for thinking you’re in the middle of an expansive wilderness.
