About Malaysia National Park
Gazette as a National Park since 1938, Taman Negara is Malaysia’s premier national park and the largest in the country. Spread over 4,343 square kilometers, this wild and virgin region is densely covered with ancient rainforest. Spanning the three states of Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang, its protrusion into Pahang is the largest. Previously known as King George V National Park, Taman Negara is meticously conserved and jealously guarded as it is among the last remaining frontiers of pristine rainforest.
The myriad variety of wildlife can be seen and photographed from the many observation ‘hides’ that are specially constructed around the salt licks frequented by the nocturnal animals. The most popular hide is the Tahan Hide, which is a 5-minute walk from the park headquarters. Taman Negara holds an endless list of exhilarating sights and exciting activities for you. Let your adventure spirit take you on an unforgettable tour of nature. A short walk of 1.5km, from the Park’s headquarters bring you to the Canopy Walkway, a suspension bridge of strong ropes, cables, net and wood, hanging 40 meters above the ground.
There are several limestone hills that stay undisturbed since several hundred million years ago. Gua Telinga, Gua Kepayang, Gua Daun Menari and Gua Luas are among the more popular caves. A leisurely 40-minute trip up the Tahan River is the Lata Berkoh Waterfall. It offers visitors the invigorating experience of swimming in the cool waters of deep pool below the fall. The more adventurous would perhaps prefer shooting the 7 rapids of the Tembeling River. The 9-kms ride in an open boat takes about 5 minutes but be preopared to get wet.
