Welcome to Forest Research Institute Malaysia
Birdsong and wall-to-wall greenery replace the drone of traffic and air-conditioning at the Forest Research Institute Malaysia. About 16km northwest of KL and covering nearly 600 hectares, the institute was established in 1929 to research the sustainable management of rainforests. FRIM functions as a giant park, with a fantastic canopy walkway, quiet roads and well-established trails though the jungle landscape. There’s also a wide variety of flora and native wildlife to discover, from leaf monkeys and colourful birds to indigenous fruit trees and rare, old dipterocarp trees.
