Poring Canopy Walk
The canopy walkway is essentially rope and steel cable suspension bridges that zig-zag through the crowns of the tallest, strongest and long lasting trees such as "Menggaris" (Kompassia excelsa) and 'Seraya' (Shorea sp). The walkway is composed of a series of 5 meters aluminium ladders bolted together and suspended horizontally from cables. Laced with polyester ropes, the open rungs of ladders are covered with walking boards. Nettings enclosed both sides to add safety.
There are 3 circuits of canopy walkways with a total length of 373.6 meters and a height of up to 41 meters depending on the slope of the land below. The walkway is opened to the public in May 1990. The first circuit has a 'Y' shape with a total length of 157.6 meters, and has been established as a tourist walkway. It is open from 9.00am - 4.00pm everyday.
It was exciting!
This was our first time ever to walk on a canopy.
