I came to Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve a few years ago with some friends when one of them said something about doing some outdoor exercises. When he mentioned Bukit Nanas Forest Reserves, I thought he was joking. Nope, not a joke at all. Well, I wanted to see what was on his mind so I followed him.
Well, to my surprise, there actually was an obstacle course here. And the place isn't small so it makes for an ideal jogging track. We spent hours here until our bodies were pretty much ready to give in. Note to self, wear long pants. The mosquitoes were killing me. I heard this place is going under maintenance and it won't be opened any time soon. Well, once it reopens, I want to see what has changed.
I stumbled upon this forest while walking around near the KL tower area. The natural green tress beckoned to me so I went for a hike up to the top. Luckily I was wearing the proper attire and not flip-flops.
The forest reserve was packed with efficiently preserved flora and fauna. The view at the peak was equally breath taking as you could see a better view of the city. I really liked the place because there was literrally no garbage lying around anywhere. The people are doing a good job at maintaining the place.
