Taman Negara is a 4,343 sq km rainforest sanctuary. As one of the oldest tropical rainforest in the world, the possibilities for eco-tourism are immense. Here, visitors find endless ecological adventure and opportunity to observe diverse species of animal and plant life.
Here are some of the highlights found at Taman Negara:
Night Jungle Walk – Discover the side of the jungle which comes alive at night. Familiarize yourself with nocturnal plants and insects and savour a chance to spot animals up close at the Observation Hide.
Jungle Trekking at Bukit Teresek and Canopy Walkway – Hike up this 334m hill for panoramic view of Gunung Tahan and the magnificent forest canopies that cover the hills and valleys. Then, cross the Canopy Walkway, the world’s longest suspension bridge, 40 meters above fround and 530 meters long.
Boat Cruise to Lata Berkoh - Cruise along Sungai Tahan to relish the riverside flora and fauna and dip into the refreshing cascades at Lata Berkoh which form a natural Jacuzzi. Along the way, stop by the Fish Sanctuary for a chance to snorkel amongst fresh water fishes.
Cave Exploration – Home to various bats, racer snakes and many fascinating insects, exploring limestone caves such as Gua Telinga guarantees fun and excitement. For the more adventurous, opt for a longer trek and then spend a night in one of these caves – Kepayang Besar, Kepayang Kecil, Luas or Daun Menari.
Shooting the Rapids at Kuala Trenggan – An exhilarating ride that faces seven rapids promises a wet and wild experience! Fishing and bird-watching (with more than 300 species recorded) are also popular sport here.
Orang Asli Settlements - “Orang Asli”, the local natives, are gentle folk who lead a nomadic lifestyle in Taman Negara. They are called Batek and their settlements are found along the trails whilst, some are accessible by boat.
Fishing – One of the main attractions of Taman Negara, it is best carried out during the drier months of the February to April and June to August. Anglers will need permits, which are issued at RM10 per rod.
Wildlife observation hide (Jungle hide) – Spend nights hidden up in the trees while waiting for a tapir, bear or elephant to appear. Most hides are built overlooking saltlicks, from which some animals obtain necessary minerals. Except for Bumbun Tahan, which is five minutes away, most require either a boat ride or a few hours walk to get to it.
Mountain climbing – The more adventurous can try climbing Gunung Tahan, the highest peak in Peninsular Malaysia. This challenge demands will power, physical fitness, good equipment and a guide. The trail is 55km from Mutiara Taman Negara.
Four Steps Waterfall – The eastern flanks of Gunung Tahan and Gunung Gedong drop off very sharply into the headwaters of Sungai Tahan. One of the tributaries in the Ulu Tahan plunges and cascades spectacularly down the mountainside in what is known as the Four Steps Waterfall.
