Amazing Canopy Walks in Malaysia

Need a reason to be vegetarian? Or need a refresher course on why you are on a meat-free diet? Talk a stroll on one of these amazing canopy walks and let nature remind you. The breath-taking experience to be walking among tree tops will certainly inspire you.

Here they are, from left to right, top to bottom:

Danum Valley Canopy Walk

This 300 metre walk in Sabah might be shorter than others, but that doesn’t mean it’s less interesting. The Danum Valley Canopy Walk actually features platforms on different levels, reaching up to 45 metres. Have you ever seen a spiral staircase winding around a tree trunk? It should be noted that the trees are actually not harmed by the structure, which makes this canopy walk one of the tree-friendliest.

Mulu National Park Canopy Walk

Almost as long as the one in Taman Negara, the Mulu National Park canopy walk takes you over rivers and dense forests. The walk itself is very narrow (but very secure of course), which makes it even more of an adventure and thrill. The park and the walk are accessible from 7am–4pm. This park is definitely worth the trip, as spectacular caves and bats are waiting to be explored and discovered.

Poring Canopy Walk

This is one of the shortest walks on this list, covering only 175 metres. However, Poring Canopy Walk reaches an elevation of a whopping 43 metres. Located in Poring, Sabah, this canopy walk offers visitors astounding views. If you want to relax after a climb around the Malaysian treetops, you can explore the nearby hot springs, another major attraction in the area.

Maliau Basin Canopy Walk

Here comes the true Borneo experience. Located in one of the least explored parts of the Borneo rainforest, the Maliau Basin Canopy Walk is much harder to access than other walks. But this will be an experience you won’t forget in a long time. Stretching over 400 metres through the Maliau Basin, the walk features river crossings 20 metres above the ground and vertical 45 degrees climbs in the treetops. No matter if you are a bird watcher or an outdoor fanatic – you will love the adventure. Do note that only guests of the Maliau Basin are permitted to access the canopy walk.

Penang National Park Canopy Walk

As the name suggests, this canopy walk is located in Penang National Park. It is 250 metres long and accessible every day except Fridays. From the park entrance it is only a short and easy 20-minute hike uphill to the canopy walk. Once you are there, you can start exploring nature and wildlife on a simple (but secure) structure in the treetops.

Sungai Sedim Canopy Walk

If you thought that 500 metres is long, than you should visit the Sungai Sedim Canopy Walk, as it goes on for about 925 metres through the forest. The canopy walk itself is a metal structure and offers plenty of space to enjoy a leisurely nature walk. Bird watchers will love the Sungai Sedim Canopy Walk, as there are plenty of bird species to be spotted.
