"Bukit Nanas or "Pineapple Hill" is indeed a rare landmark of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It contains the only virgin tropical rain forest left in the city, believed to be over 3 million years old. The city planners has dedicated to preserve this pristine jungle located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Originally home of the Malaysian tigers and elephants, this jungle is still home to monkeys, pythons, squirrels, monitor lizards, an amazing fact given that the city of Kuala Lumpur now has 3 million inhabitants, the world's second tallest building and is a thriving cosmopolitan city.
The Bukt Nanas Forest Reserve is open to the public. There are jungle trails, a visitors centre, and a forestry museum. There used to be a cable car service that has been closed since the 1980s.
In the 1990s, one of Kuala Lumpur's most famous icon is added to the hill, the Kuala Lumpur Tower, which is the fifth tallest telecommunications tower in the world. It has an observation deck, a banquet floor and a revolving restaurant. Visitors are highly recommended to visit the observation deck in the daytime and dine at the revolving restaurant at night...."


^^ ok, that's from wikipedia:)

So, now i want to bring you into the 3 million years old jungle through the 'Jelutong Trail'

the journey begins here, the Art Gallery (i'm sorry, the pictures are big)

Very nice. I like this kind of greenery especially in the heart of a busy city.

There is another one which is located behind Bank Negara where it has an access road to the Mall, what area do you call it?

travellator, it takes approx. 20 minutes to complete the loop...there is a 'stop' where you can either go up to KL tower or go straight to Forest Reserve Information Center.
