This untouched primary rainforest area is more than 130 million years old, teeming with exotic birds and rare wildlife species. Just 240 kilometres north of Kuala Lumpur, the park is best experienced by boat. Come here for exotic bird spotting, trekking, rock climbing, fishing, and camping.
Immerse yourself in the dense jungle for a few days, dine on floating restaurants on the river, go white water rafting, explore caves, and take a dip underneath a cascading waterfall. An experienced guide will help you spot flora and fauna treasures right underneath your nose. Make sure to try a sweet and delicious Kelah fish speciality and teeter across Malaysia’s longest suspension bridge, spotting birds as you go. Take the rare opportunity to visit an Orang Asli village and interact with the local tribe.
Visitors generally access Taman Negara National Park via the nearby town of Kuala Tahan, just a few hours from Kuala Lumpur. Several tour operators organise boat tours from Kuala Lumpur along the river, and buses travel to Kuala Tehan from Jerantut. The best time to visit the park is between February and September each year.
