wild fruit trees. This trail ends up at the starting point, be alert and follow the instruction given by the guides or otherwise you may follow other route which will make you to lost your way.

It is a knowledge oriented trail where you may treasure the collection of Palms, Borneo Ginger (the best Ginger collection in Malaysia), useful Bamboos

Soft and cold drinks is normally available for sell at the Rest House, please ask the housekeeper in charge to serve you. The next journey from the Rest House to the end point will be a bit tough and challenging.

The third and longest trail is call Trail of Challenge (‘Laluan Cabaran’), which is 4.3 Km in length and considered as the toughest trail in the Park (Purple colour trail).
