Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve is a small piece of real rain forst situated smack in the center of Kuala Lumpur.
It has not been placed there, but is a small piece of the city that has been left to nature while they build up the rest of the city.
There are well marked trails there and it´s really nice to take a walk through the jungle while you are in one of the busiest cities in Asia.
Fancy a walk on the wild side? The Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve is a 10.5 hectare tropical rainforest in the middle of KL! Its trails and swinging bridge are at the base of the 421m-high Kuala Lumpur Tower. We climbed from the base up to the TV Tower and made a morning of it all. Keep your camera ready to take pictures of the wild monkeys. Absolutely fantastic! There are places to stop and rest or even exercise. You can sit at a table and eat a picnic if you want. Even the rubbish bins are disguised as tree trunks.
Its also an educational walk with signs explaining the flowers, plants, birds and small animals you will see. It is great exercise as well. This small slice of rainforest has existed since 1906 and is great for romantic coupes and families.
The Bukit Nanas ("Pineapple Hill") Forest Reserve is a 10.5 hectares slice of tropical rainforest located at the base of the KL Tower, smack in the centre of town. There are several clearly marked hiking trails in the jungle, plus a rope bridge. Overall, though, I found the jungle somewhat disappointing, with little to see or to do.
Nature-lovers can get away from the mad rush of city life - by staying right here in the city! There is a 10.5ha natural haven in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, possibly the largest stretch of forest reserve left in the concrete jungle.
