Experience the world's oldest deciduous rainforest with its 130-million-year-old history on this unforgettable nature adventure!
Day 1 – Kuala Lumpur / Kuala Tembeling Jetty (200 Km) then by boat to Kuala Tahan / HAN Rainforest Resort
Our nature adventure starts with a trip bound for Kuala Tembeling Jetty. Once you have arrived at the National Park and Wildlife Department, proceed to register yourself and subsequently board a motorised longboat to Kuala Tahan, the headquarters of Taman Negara. The 3-hour boat ride is far from dull as you will pass by quaint villages that are surrounded by a lush tropical rainforest. Sightings of monkeys, water buffaloes and birds are common en route. Upon arrival, you will have to get a water taxi to be ferried across to the HAN Rainforest Resort for check-in.
Once you have sorted things out and rested a little, meet your guide at the Resort’s reception at approximately 8.30 pm who will then guide you through the 130 million years old jungle for a night walking expedition. Keep to the boardwalk and you may spot nocturnal creatures out lurking in the dark. Listen to the thrum of the rainforest as it comes alive at night, heralding the emergence of animals that thrive in the cover of darkness. After that, turn in for the night as you will require your strength for the next morning.
Day 2 – Teresek Hill / Canopy Walk / Rapid Shooting / Lata Berkoh
After a good breakfast at 9.30 am, prepare for a 1.5-hour jungle walk to Teresek Hill. Along the way, your guide will highlight numerous plants and vegetation, providing a truly immersive experience for your enjoyment. On a clear day, the majestic Mount Tahan, the highest in Peninsular Malaysia, can be easily spotted. Before returning, attempt the Canopy Walkway that is constructed 40 metres above ground to observe the rainforest from a different perspective.
Once noon has passed, you will embark on another adventure to Lata Berkoh where you can dip in a pool of surreal beauty. In addition, we will make a pit stop at the Lubuk Tenor Fish Sanctuary where you will be kept busy feeding hungry fishes. Blessed with clear waters on a normal day, this sanctuary is the product of the combined effort of both the local villages and the Malaysian government. After that, we will take a boat back to the resort, drifting slowly and quietly along the river in hopes of spotting elusive wild animals.
Day 3 – Taman Negara by boat to Kuala Tembeling Jetty then overland to Kuala Lumpur
Revitalise yourself with a hearty breakfast as you prepare to journey back to Kuala Tembeling and then to Kuala Lumpur city centre. The journey home begins at 9 am and it will take about 2 hours to reach the jetty. From there, the transfer back to Kuala Lumpur which will depart at 1.30 pm and will take another 3 to 4 hours.
