Taman Negara, Malaysia

Taman Negara National park (Pahang, Malaysia) spread out over 4343 sq. km of the formidable Titiwangsa Mountain Range ,one of the world’s oldest tropical rainforest. A sanctuary to hundreds of species of birds, butterflies, insects, fish and plants. Home to Malaysia’s friendly aborigines, the Orang Asli. A shy yet gentle race, they continue to live the nomadic way they’ve lived for centuries although fully aware of the country’s fastest-paced progress. Legally declared an area for conservation in 1938, the 135 million year old Taman Negara is a haven for the nation’s flora and fauna. Jungle tracks, campsites and the Taman Negara Resort have all being constructed to blend with the natural surroundings, to be in harmony with the forest. Many structured have been built strictly for the observation and appreciation of the grandeur of the towering forest and its inhabitants.
Cooling off in the water, before heading home
At the waterfall, after a 1 km walk
On the river, at base camp
Crossing the river, after canopy walk
View of base camp, from the hotel
Waiting for our turn for the canopy walk
The canopy walk
On the river, on the way
Good food, reasonable prices, tasty ... tasty ...
The floating office and restaurant
