Endau Rompin National Park is virgin jungle at its most primitive – volcanic formations and rainforests more than 200 million years old. Situated on the border of the Johor and Pahang regions in Peninsula Malaysia, this large 8000 square kilometre national park encompasses the Rompin and Endau river watersheds, home to plenty of exotic flora and fauna species. If you’re a jungle junkie, this is a fascinating and quite remote place to visit.
Look out for elephants, birds, mammals, and exotic orchids. If you take the time to trek along the rivers, you can spot rapids, waterfalls, the crystal-clear Blue Lake, and perhaps greet the occasional leopard or tapir along the path. Most of the people you will encounter along the way inside the national park itself are from the Jakun tribe, or from neighbouring Orang Asli villages.
There are three entrances that lead you into the national park from the east, the west, or from Pahang. It’s possible to get lost here for several days or even a week, and taking a tour is recommended unless you are a particularly seasoned trekker. Plenty of adventure activities are available, including rafting, water abseiling, tube rafting, 4X4 off road tours, and fishing.
