Embark on an exciting adventure to Taman Negara, 155 miles (250 km) northeast of Kuala Lumpur. Explore the vibrant tropical landscapes of a 130-million-year-old virgin rainforest and enjoy fun activities including a dizzying canopy walk, fascinating jungle trek, and a relaxing boat cruise.
Take a comfortable and private air-conditioned vehicle to the rural town of Jerantut. Along the way, go through the stunning Genting Sempah mountain pass, flanked by steep hillsides brimming with verdant forests. Stop for a tasty lunch and stretch your legs before you continue to the river bank at Kuala Tahan, where you climb aboard narrow boats for a leisurely ride to Mutiara Taman Negara Resort.
Admire the dense vegetation of one of the world’s oldest rainforests and keep your eyes peeled for wildlife including colorful, exotic birds and clambering monkeys. Arrive at the resort in the evening and unwind before setting out for a nighttime jungle walk to discover the area’s nocturnal creatures.
After breakfast, join your guide as you cruise the Tahan River tributary to the tumbling rapids of Lata Berkoh. Snap some photos of the picturesque setting before heading to the world’s longest canopy walk, where you can see a myriad of plant and animal species as you meander 147 feet (45 m) above the ground.
Later, trek through the jungle to Teresek Hill and marvel at the highest mountain in Peninsular Malaysia—Mount Tahan—looming in the distance. Return on a different trail that passes by a water hole, perfect for a refreshing swim before you head back.
After you check out, hop aboard a private vehicle and enjoy a scenic ride back to your city center hotel.
