Info : Archaeology in Lenggong Valley
The UNESCO World Heritage-listed site of Lenggong Valley has been inhabited for more than 200,000 years. It is one of Malaysia's most important archaeological locations, the site of the ‘Perak Man’, which, at around 11,000 years-old, is the oldest and most complete skeleton found in Southeast Asia. Whilst simple, the Archeological Museum is an interesting stop along the route towards Belum State Forest, and houses 100,000 year-old stone tools amongst other artifacts. You’ll take a local lunch in the town of Gerik, before continuing to Royal Belum State Forest.
