Activities at Bukit Cahaya
Here are some activities at the park:
- Cycling (you must rent park bicycles, own bikes not allowed)
- Walking / jogging
- Stay at chalets
- Cactus Garden
- Four Seasons Climate House (Rumah Iklim)
- Animal park
- Mushroom Garden
- Bamboo Garden

- Fishing (RM2 charged per rod)
- Visit paddy field and traditional rice harvesting method

The Four Seasons House will change in the following months:
December to February – Winter
March to May – Spring
June to August – Summer
September to November – Autumn
The display will be closed for a couple of weeks at the end of each season.
Personally I think they should just build three more buildings, and have all four seasons on display all year round.
You need to pay RM3 per adult, RM1 per child (under 12 years)
Skytrex Flying Fox Adventure
This new addition to the park allows you to fly up to 22 metres above the ground if you’re not afraid of heights.
There are 3 courses available:
- Little Adventure for beginners and kids
- Extreme Challenge
- Big Thrill, the feature attraction
You need to book weeks in advance because it is very popular.
Visit Whoa Adventures for bookings, course descriptions, safety information and discounts.
Here are some tips to make your visit more enjoyable:
- Set expectations. The park is huge, and there will be a lot of walking.
- Bring mosquito repellant, wear long pants and long sleeves
- You can always purchase drinks at the shops in the park, but you may want to bring your own food if you are not flexible with what you can eat
- The ground can be slippery with mud or moss, so wear shoes with good grip
If there are any mistakes, please let me know so I can update with the correct information.
Feel free to share your experience and reviews in the comments section. I haven’t been there for a while, things may have changed.
Do share photos of your trip, I will put a link to your Flickr album if it is good!
Hope you have a safe, pleasant and enjoyable trip with your friends and family (sounds like flight attendant haha)
