We were excited about visiting a rain forest even though it meant a really early morning start and a long drive (3 hours) but this visit was totally disappointing. Before booking I asked the agency (Justexplore Travel) if there would be a lot of uphill walking as that is something I wouldn't be able to manage over long distances and... More

I hiked gunung tahan solo without a guide. It's possible but you'll need navigation. Here's how I did it: hikegunungtahan dot blogspot dot my.

We had a great time whilst exploring Taman Negara National Park. From Georgetown we took the 101 to the park which costs under £1 one way (can't remember exactly how much) It takes about 45 minutes but it's definitely worth the travel. Upon arrival i realized we had forgotten our passports and i was frustrated because i read you had... More

After considering a second night and what to do n Tamara Negara we finally decided to only stay one night in Kuala Tahan. That is perfectly sufficient to see the most interesting sights if the summary of our tour book and cross-reading TripAdvisor is to be believed. The started right after breakfast to go to the Canopy walkway which is... More

Taman Negara is believed to be the oldest rainforest on the planet. We stayed in the cabins on the forest side of the river. In the dry season, foreigners can walk through the rainforest all day on easy paved trails. Guides with college educations in the flora and fauna accompany foreigners through the dense forest. They point out details otherwise... More

We went despite the bad reviews we read about it. However we had time to kill and the Mutiara wasn't bad. So do avoid the night safaris. They take you into a denuded forest area - which had no trees and obviously no wildlife. One sighting of an owl and a very sad tree frog desperately clinging onto a stump... More

This forest is beautiful and wild. There is a village where you can find lots of agencies, all more or less with the same tourist packs. I list my reviews of 4 packs here. Night walk. That is ok when you arrive the first day in the afternoon, excited for the forest around you, and want to make friendship with... More

You'll admire the authentic tropical forest ,its huge ,diverse and wonderful flora and wildlife; but also and first of all ,you'll meet indigene families living in the forest since always,but open mind with foreigners; respectful to them, they will explain to you how they do still live there:tremendous !
