The area is exciting and fantastic to see but I have seen much better guiding in other areas of Malaysia and would prefer to see the rainforest in... More

There are several jungle tours and rafflesia tour at this resort. But, we could... More

There are lots of picturesque views that can be seen along the East-West Highway (route 4) as you traverse across the Titiwangsa main range from Gerik in Perak to Jeli in Kelantan. We will always make a brief midway rest stop at Pulau Banding (Banding Island) where Belum Rainforest Resort is, after crossing Lake Temenggor Bridge. It is well worth... More

We - family with 2 young kids - stayed 2 nights at the Tasik Temenggor Discovery Island. In one sentence, we had a great time at a very quite private island with great views and a very warm welcome by Steve and his team. After being picked up right on time near the bridge, it's about 15 min with the... More

We booked a 3 night stay at the Tasik Temenggor Discovery Island Resort (www.ttddi.com.my). They had advertised accommodation on a fleet of houseboats on the lake in the middle of the jungle. As it happened, we stayed at small chalets, each of which just big enough for a double bed, no wardrobes. Each hut has an outdoor shower and sink... More
