SkyTrex Adventure

 Amongst the many attractions housed within the National Botanical Garden Shah Alam, (the biggest botanical garden in the world) is SkyTrex Adventure. This recreational park offers a variety of exciting jungle pursuits like walking on aerial ropeways, climbing and swinging from trees and smashing paintball journeys in the jungle. The underlying aim of these active forest based activities is to make young ones aware of the many charms of Malaysia’s vivacious rainforest terrains.

The SkyTrex Adventure is the first challenge of its kind in Malaysia and it consists of a well organized, regulated ‘eco-recreational cum educational activity’ that acquaints participants with the park’s lofty trees, by way of a series of aerial obstacles suspended at heights ranging from three to 22 meters above ground. The adventure-lovers are asked to walk, crawl, glide, swing through this aerial canopy as they conquer their fears and navigate the various obstacle courses.

However, it must be mentioned that all the courses are extremely well administered with the utmost regard for safety and in fact participants are expected to complete an initiation program whereby they are taught to use the PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) supplied, before embarking on any of the three circuits offered.

Wondering about the challenges at SkyTrex Adventure? Some details of the various courses are given herewith: -
