Step into a realm high in the mountains
Enter the Cloud Forest, a mysterious world veiled in mist. Take in breath-taking mountain views surrounded by diverse vegetation and hidden floral gems. And learn about rare plants and their fast-disappearing environment.
Note: Earth Check area will be closed from 10 Apr to 3 Jul 2017 and +5 Degrees area will be closed from 4 Jul to 31 Oct 2017 for upgrading works to serve you better. Cloud Forest will remain open to public as usual. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Entirely different from the Flower Dome, the Cloud Forest showcases plant life from tropical highlands up to 2,000 metres above sea level. It features a 35-metre-tall mountain covered in lush vegetation, shrouding the world’s tallest indoor waterfall.
Take the lift to the top of the mountaintop to discover the unique biodiversity and geology of cloud forests, and then take a stroll along a walkway in the clouds for an aerial view of the canopy and mountainside below.
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.
Stop by the Black Box and learn about how the Supertrees help capture solar energy and serve as exhausts, and how discarded plant matter help us we provide energy to cool the air in the two Conservatories.
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.
