Canopy Walkway at Poring Hot Spring, Ranau



Have you ever try canopy walk before?
Welcome to Canopy Walkway at Poring Hot Spring, Ranau.
This canopy walkway is a must visit for anyone who ever sets foot in Poring Hot Springs. Take a stroll amidst the lush canopy of the Menggaris tree~king of the forest. The walkway is 157.8 meters long and 41 meters high.

~ waiting for our turn ~



I must admit that I am terrified of height. But I challenged myself to do it, actually this is the second time I walk through the canopy. If I survived the first try, why not this second time? lol…

 




The reason they built this walkway was to provide an opportunity or to experience the wildlife that can be found up there. However, it is not our lucky day because we didn’t see any creature roaming around the tree. 

~ at the surveillance deck ~



If you wish to take a break and enjoying the view of rainforest surrounding, they provide a surveillance deck. Take your time but don’t take too long, everyone is waiting for their turn.   


At one point, I nearly gave up. I was like OMG, can I even finish this? My fiancĂ©, brothers and sisters keep teasing me from behind. I was in the middle of the walkway, so there is no turning back. The only option was to continued and praying that the walkway will not crash. Hahaha…

~ Yeah! I managed to finish the walkway ~
~ End of torture...lol ~
I don’t even know what I am doing up there. Seriously, you are supposed to enjoy the lavish view but the only thing that wandering in my mind was to finish it ASAP.  I heard a couple of tourist said, "this is a nightmare". Hahahaha…        
Moral of this story~if you are afraid of heights then do not attempt this Canopy Walk or you will be at risk of getting stuck.

But believe me, terrified of height or not…the experience was worthwhile, almost exotic!

  18. Hey i just visited this place.. I saw that largest flower, Rafflesia arnoldii which was huge and around more or less 1 meter in its diameter. Then I had gone for Canopy Walk which was hypothetical to be a track walking path. Then the 2 different waterfalls. Bathe within the Japanese-fashion baths. I took a look at Butterfly Farm.
