Taman Negara is a 130 million years of age, national park on the Malay peninsula. The best way to get into Taman Negara is upstream along the Tembeling river in a wooden boat, then you pick your path and trek deeper into the jungle. Taman Negara’s famous canopy walkway is maybe something fun for kids. Sure, at 50m up in... More

This national park is easy to explore alone or with a group. The paths are very well marked and for the most part well maintained. If you want to see animals- go on a night hike with a guide who can point out some insects and other animals (I saw a wild pig). But come prepared with enough cash as... More

If you have never been to the southeast-asian jungle here is your opportunity. You can go to Kuala Tahan from Jerantut by bus from here you can do a plenty of different tours which are provided by the local agencies//Or by yourself like we did. I.e. rent a boat(160RM)to the waterfalls of Laka Beton and hike the 9km back through... More

I went here expecting stunning scenery, and it was very nice, but I'd say the overall experience was what made the trip so fantastic. I particularly enjoyed the visit to the Orang Asli village, where we saw the lifestyle of a proper native tribe and learnt about how they hunted animals in the jungle - fascinating! For most people I... More

All treks are not for the faint hearted - have plenty of water and take it slow. I haven't been in a gym since about 2008 and wish I had - the heat and constant climb made it hard for someone with little to no stamina. Fab view points and the canopy walk is worthwhile.

The forest, river and local villages are all amazing. I stress never book with NKS hotel and tours because they are hopeless. They are pathetic with their customer service approach. Just grunting orders most of the time. Avoid the older guide called amir. He has lost interest in his job a long time ago. I'm just sad I had the... More

It is a long trip to get to Taman Negara - 6 plus hours. It is a bit pricey compared to other parts of Malaysia since many of the activities have charges involved. The hostels are on the other side of the river from the park. There is a resort in the park, but it is very expensive. I choose... More

We booked a 3 day / 2 night trip via a travel agent in KL, due to short timescales. The tour operator was NKS. Avoid these guys. They are the sharks of the jungle. Their staff are uninterested & they keep you waiting for extended periods at each transit point to maximise their potential for more customers. Given the time... More

If you are going to visit Taman Negara from Kuala Lumpur, you need to be prepared for a 2-3 hour ride in a small minibus followed by a similar length journey by boat. It is worth it as the jungle offers the opportunity to spot many different animals and to enjoy this piece of virgin jungle. The walks in the... More
