Taman Negara National Park

Taman Negara is Malaysia’s Premiere National Park, home to a pristine rainforest rich of flora and fauna.

Highlights

  • Taman Negara is one of the world's oldest rainforest
  • The forest is home to native Orang Asli the “original people” of Malaysia
  • Taman Negara's canopy walk is 530m long and up to 40m above the forest ground
  • Rapid shooting is probably one of the most exciting activities to do in Taman Negara

Taman Negara spans an area of 4, 343 square km, comprising mountains, limestone hills, caves, rivers and undisturbed rainforest. The park protects hundreds of plant species and unique wildlife.

Taman Negara’s Canopy Walkway is one of the largest rainforest walkways in the world being 530m long and up to 40m above the forest ground. The bridge is connected from one tree to another tree and provides a bird’s eye view of the roof of the forest.

Teresek Hill Trek is another interesting and challenging activity that would test the endurance of the visitors in climbing their way to the top of the hill.

Lata Berkoh Waterfalls can be reached by a 45-minute longboat ride from Kuala Tahan. The waterfalls offer its visitors an invigorating experience of swimming in a cool deep pool.

Taman Negara is the home of the Orang Asli, the indigenous peoples of Malaysia. They are nomadic hunters and gatherers, so the exact location of their settlements change within the general confines of the area that they inhabit.
