Taman Negara Rainforest Tour
Nature lovers, assemble! Get ready for a day of adventure, beginning after being picked up from your hotel in Kuala Lumpur city centre. You'll travel by bus to the centre of the Malaysian peninsula, where the luscious Taman Negara rainforest will be waiting for you.
After around a three-and-a-half-hour journey, you'll arrive at the National Park of Taman Negara. A tropical rainforest formed 130 million years ago, it's considered one of the oldest jungles in the world. It spans an area of more than 1600 square miles (over 4000 square km), and is known as one of the country's best ecotourism centres.
Here you'll have the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the national park in a number of different ways, each one an adventure. Firstly, explore the rainforest on foot with a jungle trek of around two miles (1 - 3 km). You'll get up close and personal with the flora and fauna native to the region; if you're lucky, you should be able to see species such as the red junglefowl. Your hike will end at Bukit Teresek, one of the best viewpoints in the area, from which you'll enjoy unforgettable views over the jungle and across to Gunung Tahan, a peak which at 7,175 feet (2,187 m) is the highest point in Peninsular Malaysia.
The adventure doesn't stop here. Head down to the Tembeling River, where you'll practice "rapid shooting". This involves sailing down the white waters of the river at top speeds in a traditional wooden boat. Hold on tight!
Your final stop will be at Orang Asli, a local village where a community of indigenous people live. Here you'll learn all about daily life in the region, and be able to see the Malaysian rainforest from yet another fascinating perspective.
After a fun-filled day, you'll return to Kuala Lumpur, where you'll be dropped back off at your hotel.
