The group photos were done. If you decide to call it quits, nobody would blame you. You had officially joined the walk and there was prove. No Photoshop needed. But for those who were strong amongst us, we ventured forth.

Up the hill we went.

It was not the first time that I walked the canopy path here at Bukit Nanas. The name may have changed - it is now called KL Forest Eco Park - but the place remains the same. They had high canopy stretching between the tall trees at the forest reserve. Very safe and sturdy but still prone to the odd swing. If you were afraid of heights, maybe the more traditional route over set of steep stairs would be best for you. Anyhow, it was great to see such facility right in the middle of the city being maintained at such high standards and preserved for our kid's generation.

One can't help but felt that the place could've been promoted more, with clear plans for the future. Maybe a sort of mini resort or homestay. More side attractions. I can't remember any new additions to the facility since I last visited the park.

After enjoying the dizzying climb, things leveled as we reached the floor of KL Tower. We waited there for the rest of the group to join us snapping away at the KL Tower contrasting with the crisp late morning blue sky. The sun was getting high and soon, the lights would be harsh.

The walk down the hill was obviously less strenous. Although the original plan was to hop on to one of the KL Tower free shuttle buses, we decided walking would be better. From here, we went by the AMBank building venturing back to near where we begin and cut across onto Bukit Ceylon. Time to explore a temple there ...
