If you fancy a bit of a workout on your way to Menara KL, an alternative to the shuttle bus is to climb the short and well-labelled nature trails through the Bukit Nanas Forest Eco Park. This lowland dipterocarp forest reserve covering 9.37 hectares was gazetted in 1906, making it the oldest protected piece of jungle in Malaysia. Explore it alone, or on a free guided tour starting from the entrance to Menara KL at 11am, 12.30pm, 2.30pm and 4.30pm daily and lasting about 45 minutes. By the time you read this, the new canopy walkway should also be completed. There are good displays and leaflets in the Forest Information Centre at the base of the hill.
