A part of the new Tropical Montane Orchidetum, The Secret Ravine trail is located near the Tan Hoon Siang Mist House and the Sembcorp Cool House. The trail is named after the habitats that can be found in deep, narrow valleys of tropical mountains, which contain some of the richest endemic biodiversity in the world, which is known as the secret ravines.
