Taman Negara National Park

The jungle of Taman Negara dates back around 130 million years and covers an area of over 4000 square km in central Malaysia. The lush rainforest is a sanctuary for many endangered species, including Tigers, Leopards, Elephants and Rhinos, although the jungle in Taman Negara is at points so thick that you could pass within feet of one of these animals and never know they were there. The park is also home to the Batek people, one of Malaysia's ethnic minorities.

Taman Negara offers a wide variety of walking and trekking, from a short stroll to a full day hike up to the highest point in Peninsula Malaysia, Gunung Tahan. If that doesn't sound like your thing, you can take a more casual walk along the 25 metre high canopy walkways. There are also some incredible boat trips to be taken in the national park, deep into the jungle.
