A taste of the jungle

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... read 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

This is a tourist trap. We had three nights here. The first night we went on a night tour - there were too many visitors, so we could not hear what the guide was saying. We were not walking in the jungle but on stairs/platforms 1 meter above the ground. We only saw three sticks and one spider – disappointing.... More

An excellent boat ride across the river to the park. Park ranger was very nice and spoke to me in Bahasa instead of English which was very nice for a change. The park itself is a great place but the walkways are made of plastic which is becoming brittle. As the walkway is suspended about 2 feet above the forest... More

Mutiara Taman Negara is a great place to relax and is so close the forest. After viewing the video at night, I only knew Taman Negara is about 250 millions years old!! It is one of the oldest rainforest in the world!! I am so proud of Malaysia!! I stayed at the challet just behind the forest, we were so... More
