After the toll, drive for 16.6KM to reach the junction of Lebuhraya Perdana (Highway), continue for another 4.2KM then turn left into K115 & towards a small town call Sungai Kob, approximately 17.5KM to reach the junction to turn into Sedim River Recreation Forest (K166).

Freddy Tay and his friend are attracted by the Tree Top Walk of Sedim River and they drive directly from Cameron Highlands (after 2 night stayed).

The Tree Top Walk of Sg.Sedim was officially launched on March 5, 2009 by KDYMM Sultan Kedah.

This is the popular destination for the adventures, white-water enthusiasts and nature lovers. The river is claim to be one of the best white-water destination in Malaysia. The area has the Malaysia longest canopy walk (of reinforced steel) that spans 950 meter above the lush green rainforest trees and Sedim River.

Please prepare a comfort shoes, drinking water & some light foods. Because along the Tree Top Walk, there's no stall along the track.
You will be enjoying the Fauna & Flora along the walk also enjoy the white-water stream below your foot.
Freddy and his friend did not finish the whole tracks (950 meter). They turned back to the stream to enjoy the cold water and the nature surrounding.

The white-water rafting only in the morning and charges are : 2 hours for MYR150.00 & 5 hours for MYR300.00. Guide will be provided.

I accidently found some info about the track was damage by the trees during the "Forest Explorers" visit. But I have no idea whether they maintain it well today...
Below are the 2 pictures taken by them...
