Step into a realm high in the mountains
Explore the tropical highlands amidst orchids, pitcher plants and ferns from the cool-moist Tropical Montane region. Be amazed as you encounter the world's tallest indoor waterfall at 30 metres and descend through the surreal mist-filled Cloud Walk and Treetop Walk.
High in the tropical mountains, plants absorb the refreshing mist and abundant rainfall, releasing the water gradually to create a constant, long-lasting supply for the land beneath them to support even more plants!
Our mountain is densely planted with fascinating orchids, delicate ferns, colourful bromeliads, dazzling begonias and carnivorous pitcher plants. All of these are epiphytic and live on top of other plants in nature.
The Tassel Fern (Huperzia squarrosa) is a plant related to the ferns, reproducing by minute spores carried away by the wind.
The Pitcher Plant's cup-shaped leaves may look perfectly harmless, but it actually attracts, kills and digests insects and small animals that venture within.
