tour details

Dive into the joys of Taman Negara. Start with a night jungle walk to experience nocturnal forest life. Next morning, venture into the nearby forest for a slow trek through the riverine, lowland and mixed dipterocarp forest to Teresek hill. On the canopy walk, experience an aerial view of the beautiful rainforest below. In the afternoon, proceed to Lata Berkoh by boat to enjoy the cool water pools and cascading waterfall. Then you’ll visit Orang Asli Village. The Orang Asli villagers are gentle folks who lead a nomadic lifestyle. They are called Batek and their settlements are found along the trails, while some are accessible by boat. After lunch, get ready to shoot the rapids to Kuala Trenggan. Afterwards you are free to enjoy the rainforest and its beauty at your leisure.

Why choose this tour?

A delight for travellers seeking an adventure in a prehistoric jungle. Taman Negara has protected status meaning this 130 million years old ecosystem retains some unique biodiversity. The forest is dimly lit to avoid scaring off wildlife and to conserve energy. Everything used is biodegradable and all the wooden chalet interiors are made of natural products.
