Get the complete Taman Negara experience in this 4 days and 3 nights adventure exploring the canopy walkways, zipping down rapids and seeing the amazing flora and fauna!
Day 1 – Kuala Tahan Jetty / Mutiara Taman Negara Resort
Once you have arrived at the National Park and Wildlife Department, proceed to register yourself. Next, you will have to get a water taxi to be ferried across to the Mutiara Taman Negara 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 / Lata Berkoh
On the second day, indulge in a hearty breakfast and proceed to meet your guide to commence the 1.5 hours jungle walk to Teresek Hill. The stunning tropical rainforest atop Teresek Hill will leave you in awe and the various flora found along the way will delight all nature enthusiasts. If the weather permits, Mount Tahan—the highest mountain in Peninsular Malaysia—is a humbling sight to behold. Brave your fear of heights by attempting to cross the canopy walkway that is suspended 40m above the ground.
As the sun swings past its zenith, we will get on a motorised boat to Lata Berkoh where you will lay eyes on an enchanting pool that beckons to you. Take a dip, read or just rest sore feet before heading to the Lubuk Tenor Fish Sanctuary. The sanctuary is a synergised effort involving local villagers and the government to promote ecotourism; visitors will enjoy feeding friendly fishes before returning to the resort, ending the tour for the day.
Day 3 – Rapid Shooting / Traditional Village
Eat your fill as the journey is far from over. Embark on an exciting 30-minute boat ride as you plough through a series of seven rapids to Kuala Trenggan. Take in the unmarred environment and the beauty of the park before proceeding to the Batek Native Settlement. Aptly called the “people of the jungle”, the Batek people are a resourceful nomadic tribe that live an intriguing life in the forest—a world away from the urban life we are so used to. Then, we will visit a traditional Malay village; wander an oil palm plantation and learn all about the processes before heading to a rubber plantation to see how the saps of a rubber tree are extracted. Take a peek into one of the Malay houses as you stop for a refreshing coconut drink. Use this opportunity to mingle with the locals and learn a little about their way of life.
Day 4 – Taman Negara by boat to Kuala Tahan Jetty
Revitalise yourself with a hearty breakfast as you prepare to journey back to Kuala Tahan and then back home after an amazing 3-day adventure in Taman Negara!
