Welcome to the jungle. This is the place to be, if you want to enjoy nature to the fullest. Here you can experience the nature of Malaysia. Be prepared to have some spectacular experiences.

A great place to take a walk either for the view or the animals. There are plenty of offices when you can plan trips by boat, car or with a guide during the day and during the night and the town offers all neccesities. There's a small place which serves a splendid fried rice (about four tables and an open... More

This was one of our favorite stops in Malaysia. We had only 2 full days, so we didn't have a chance to do any overnight treks, but the trails around headquarters kept us busy from dawn 'til dusk. To the people who say there is no wildlife, all I can say is that you're not looking. We passed very, very... More

Had 2 nights here and loved it all! Hired a bird-watching guide for the day from the National Park HQ rather than the resort to support National Parks work. He knew his birds and where the best places were to wait for them. Highlights were a Rhinoceros Hornbill family, sunbirds a plenty, kingfishers and several wood peckers. Also saw two... More

Taman Negara is really an over crowded National Park with several walkways throughout the park and no wildlife to be seen on the shorter walks my review is from this aspect, even birds are at a minimum. Perhaps if you do the longer overnight walks you will be more rewarded. My recommendation if you have the time is to stay... More

It was pretty wonderful to do the canopy walkway, the night safari, the village and all the rest...an easy taste of the jungle if you're travelling with kids. However, it's all rather overcrowded with tourists - we swam in the river with about 200 other people! - and the best time was actually a little walk we did in the... More

It is a great place to visit and one of the best attractions in Malaysia. I would highly recommend to do it on your own and to avoid tour packages. If you arrive to Kuala Tahan you need to take the boat to the other side of the river where you can find the main entrance for the park. All... More

For your best chance at seeing wildlife, make sure you're on the trails early - by 9am things quieten down significantly. A boat ride along the Sungai Tahan is recommended. Also, consider staying overnight at one of the 'bumbuns' (hides). I'd pay the extra RM5 per bed to book the entire hide for myself to avoid noisy neighbours who might... More

Highlights: 1. Canopy walkway 2. Up-river boat rides (i.e. Sungai Tahan) 3. Swimming at waterfalls, rapids and streams (i.e. Lata Berkoh) 4. Jungle trekking 5. Flora & fauna photography Negatives: 1. Noisy, inconsiderate tourists who come in droves and scare away everything. This is the jungle, not the mall. 2. Malaysian service industry is still very lacking so local guides... More
