    SkyTrex Adventure is located inside Taman Pertanian Malaysia (Malaysia Agricultural Park) in Shah Alam which is about 30-40 minutes drive from KLCC.

    Mizzzthanggg recommended this elevated adventure where the fun in the forest never ends! Julien Repellin, the Director, is a good friend of hers and he turned out to be thoroughly professional and dedicated instructor. Julien built the entire course himself over a period of some eight months.

    He built an adventure course where you can challenge yourself to a series of obstacles through the tropical tree tops and is elevated between 3 to 17 meters above the ground.

    You basically move from one tree to the next one by balancing over swinging rope bridges supported by steel cables.

    There were also a few flying foxes along the way including the final one which was about 100m long. This one really zipped along! And if Julien gets to fulfil his dream of constructing the world's longest flying fox of 3km's, you will get to fly at around 165km's per hour. Bring it on Julien!

    The entire course takes around 1 and 1/2 hours to complete during which your feet never touch the ground. It's completely safe as long as you follow the basic instructions and always keeping yourself harnessed.

    Kite-flying!

    People running around with kites!

    When in Shah Alam, do visit Bukit Jelutong or Section U8. Here, you can see the big landmark that looks like a boat sail which is actually the Guthrie office. Across the road is a field where people come to fly kites! Sometimes you can also see people flying remote-control ariplanes..... The wind here is incredibly strong with plenty of open space to run around....
