Oasis of green, plenty of hiking trails on natural forest 🌳 for kids, older people and many others. It was difficult to find right opened entrance, it took us some hour for right one on the top. Good time to enjoy nature, no traffic and lower temperatures. It’s activity for minimum half a day, get ready with good shoes, water and snack.

Plus.... clean forest with well maintained track.Easy to find.Even grab driver knows it.

Minus....very busy avoid weekends and holidays. Not much in way of birds or critters. Extremely humid and no breeze in forest.

Overall glad we went there. Lots of steps to work up your cold beer anticipation factor.

The sounds of the surrounding City just seemed to fade away. There are useful signs explaining what you see. The paths appear well maintained. A good spot to go for reflection.

Loved this, in the middle of the city but you would never know it. I saw water monitors, monkeys and load of amazing flowers, shrubs and trees.

If one is looking for an example of good maintenance, the walk trails will impress. A relatively new trail and possibly the most popular in the Klang Valley as the authorities have spent a lot of money to make it a premier city park.

This review is of the walk trails.

The trails are not "Accessible" for people using wheelchairs, or children on strollers, or those with infirm knees. I could have missed the more accessible parts of the park, and I would urge the authorities to change this situation. There are many steps. One is advised to bring a pair of good trekking poles and shoes, hat, comfortable clothes, and depending on the time spent here, at least a litre of drinking water.

We walked about 4km and at places we chose switchbacks allowing walkers to get close to many flowering heliconias, as well as the fragrant Pandan. We also easily spotted a few tacca integrifolia plants - the flowers giving its common name, bat lily. We came across ruins, including a well (filled up with earth), harking from times more than 100 years ago, possibly.

The paths were very well sign-posted. There were hardly any interpretative signs and information booths, but I'm sure this will change. A 'Safety' worker was seen walking past us.

The walkers we met were in very good spirits. I sensed the muhibbah or goodwill feelings among the different races. There were a few - not many - foreign visitors. Due to the huge number of visitors on the Saturday we came, we drove further in and discovered a new, half empty carpark which connected with the walk trail. Here were toliet and very basic shower facilities. I couldn't find a bench to sit on and place my clothes. I was told that the facilities at the main carpark were complete.

I would recommend this trail to every active visitor to the city if he or she has at least two to three hours to spare.

Suggestions?
1. Post prominent health and safety advice.
3. Install more toilet and shower facilities.
3. For sustainability, organise the 'Friends of Taman Tugu ' to take on responsibility for maintenance. This is designed to draw more volunteers to take on roles to (i) become guides (ii) undertake light maintenance (iii) regularly clean/weed the trails. Paid maintenance tasks - especially bigger jobs, must of course continue, but a culture of volunteering will bring the park even closer to the hearts of users, and to Kuala Lumpur residents.

Well done Kuala Lumpur!

Went with four adults and two toddlers after reading many positive reviews.

As others have said, the trails are clearly marked and well-kept. There are 5 different trails, each between 1 and 1.5 km in length.

We did two shorter trails that both led out to a swingset.

We observed many plants as well as monkeys, squirrels, and butterflies.

Our biggest takeaway was that this is not a good place to bring a stroller as the trails are too steep and have many stairs. If coming with a small child, it is best to carry them on shoulders or in a baby carrier.

Nice forested area in the middle of this big and busy city...the various trails are easy enough to walk, and everything is well marked...free entrance too!
I went here on a weekday afternoon and there was nobody else around, it was a nice authentic forest feeling, inclusive of mosquitoes and monkeys:-)

One of the best maintained Park in Msia. Easy trial and clear signages to direct your journey. Full loop will take around 5km hike. There are many routes to follow with easy reference. Well done!

It’s a good place for hiking especially for beginners. The track was easy and not too challenging. Whilst tracking, you can enjoy looking at the many flora and faunas. You can also listen to the sound of birds and monkeys climbing from one trees to the others. This is one of the famous recreational place in Kuala Lumpur. It’s not only suitable for adults but also for kids. There are about 30 check points from the start till the end of the track. The distance of the whole track is about 3.5 km. Good enough to burn your fat 😜.

Went there with 2 kids, both under 9 years old. Track fairly flat and well marked with lots of fauna to observe and appreciate.

Good SOPs in place. Only one way trail allowed to avoid crowding.
