National Park Malaysia Jerantut Pahang – Undisturbed Hills
National Park in Malaysia There are several limestone hills in National Park Malaysia that stay undisturbed since several hundred million years ago. Gua telinga, Gua Kepayang, Gua Daun Menari & 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 prepared to get wet.
Jungle trekking offers many opportunities for the visitors to experience first-hand the exotic beauty of nature at its best. There are many well-marked trails like the Tahan Trails, Teranggan Trail, Neram Trail, and Bukit Teresek loop. Each trail promises different adventure, yet all are equally fascinating.
