Travel Agency: Freme Travel Things to bring: Hat, towel, water (LOTS of it), mosquito repellent (don't use a lot of it as you'll probably attract bees to you instead), maybe sunscreen Firstly, to get there (if you're from Bandar) you travel to Bangar by boat which is about 45 mins. It is then abt a 30min drive to the lodge where guests are treated to some tea and refreshments. The journey to Ulu park itself is about 1hr by longboat. The exact time may vary depending on water level. So be sure to bring some extra shoes or wear some you don't mind getting wet in if you're required to help and push the boat. Otherwise, just sit back, relax and enjoy the sight of traversing through clear river water and surrounded by trees on both sides. At Ulu park, there will some stairs and a suspended bridge to cross first before reaching the 'real' climb--about 1500 steps. I don't know how I even managed to get to the top, but I am glad I did! I am also thankful for the guides who wait with the guests that rest a little longer at each rest stop before reaching the top and try the canopy walk. You have to climb a tower first however. There are about 4 or 5 towers in total, connected to each other and each one at different heights. If you're ok with heights, GO FOR IT! The view is spectacular! (more so during sunset and surise I hear). Afterwards guests go to visit the Dr Fish pool and later some lunch and concluded with Flying Fox before heading back to Bandar.

I found, or rather my hotel did, a company to take a solo traveler the day before. (Great company!) The speed boat ride didn't seem long, as the view out the windows was spectacular. The drive wasn't bad at all. And then came the longboats . . . which was great! What an experience! Fast, but not speedboat fast. Right there at the water, pushing 'uphill' on the way. Plus, you stay cool. There is plenty of walking, and lots of steps before 'the' steps. The suspended bridge is a great shortcut. There are stops to sit and rest along the steps if needed. Yes, you will sweat like crazy. I didn't notice it after awhile, except for keeping it out of the eyes. It would drip off my cheek before I realized the face was that beaded. Keep drinking that water. The climb up the tower is a bit apprehensive for many. (Upon return, I saw that some people viewed from the bottom of the climb, never going up.) If you're one, either don't go, or focus only on the steps ahead of you at the moment. You eventually get to the top! . . . of each tower . . . but only the first is a long climb. The walk felt secure. (If people sway in any way, you can feel it, though.) The view is marvelous. The sounds - tranquil. Luck was on our side as no one was ahead of us (that we could see). By the time we finished, there was a line. There are limits as to how many can be on each part at a time. Do it!

This trip was som years ago - the National Park is still the same - just for sharing, if ok? Started early in the morning with guide and by boat to Bangar, - changing to riverboat and going upstream about 30 min and arriving the park entrance. Now we started to walk, first over the river by a suspension bridge and than going up thousands of steps , puh! The highlight here was a climb up to the canopy of the rainforest by a scaffold. Amazing views over the forest /landscape - but no animals - maybe to late our arrival. After a lunch we went back to our boat by another route, with more canopy walking, a fantastic walk.

Well organised and we lucked out in being able to join a tour thanks to our wonderful concierge at the Badi'ah Hotel who helped us arrange this all. Pick-up was from the hotel onto the speed boat ride to Temburoung. This is where the family who run this part of the tour picked us up on the bus to take us first to the long boats. What a fab experience with these skilled boatsmen weaving us around the rockpools and eddies. We had a lovely basic breakfast followed by the climb to the canopy walk towers...wow!!! The 714 steps up followed by the ladders in the towers was a work-out that was well worth the experience. All this followed by lunch prepared by our wonderful host family and then the rubber tubing down the river. All of these experiences packed in one day...couldn't really ask for more. I wish I had asked the name of the family that ran this part of the tour but they couldn't have been friendlier or nicer. The 'doctor fish' who nibbled our feet at the bottom of the waterfall was a freebie :)

We booked the 2 days-1 night pack and it was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. After we arrived at the resort we had lunch and the started the water activities which included first Canoeing and then Tubing down the river.. It was raining but this didn’t ruin the activities. On the contrary it was amazing!! The day after we woke up at 4.30 and had the 45 min track to the canopy so we could see the sunrise.. It was amazing experiencing the sky colours and the animal sounds as another day was starting in the rainforest!!! All the staff was very friendly and helpful. I am vegetarian and didn’t have any problems with the food, as the chef cooked something especially for me. Last but not least, our guide-Richard- was amazing!! Highly recommended!!
