1.Accommodaion was at Mat Leon chalet. Cheap but basic. Pretty isolated but its OK. Owners are friendly and offer free boat ride or 4WD ride to jetty.

2.Trip to Lata Berkoh was the highlight. Amazing view, crystal clear water with lots of fish.

3.Lata Berkoh was good for swimming with some big fishes in the water, difficult to climb down due to rocks. Hiked back for 4 hours(optional, otherwise the boatmen wait until you return), some markers on the trail decayed, the Taman Nagara authority should make sure the trails are well marked.The trails are easy to go through but can be tiring due to lots of climbing.

4.At night went on a Night Safari which was like a silly tour through the Palm Oil plantation on 4WD cab, saw an owl and a wild boar, no elephant even though the guides says they saw some last night. Cost RM40 pp. Not recommended unless u have extra cash and have nothing to do at night or live in a chalet with no TV.

5. The overall experience was positive, the jungle was pristine and the streams amazing. The place is also relatively clean. Boat rides to key locations can be expensive at RM160 but its the best way to enjoy the river.

Firstly you have to get tickets and a licence etc, we got ours from the tour agent for 63Rg each. A bus picked us up 9am and took us to the Kuala Tembeling jetty, we then headed off up the river which took 2 hours to get to Kuala Tahan village, which is a nice, easy and an interesting way to get there, however there were not many of us, so we could spread out and relax over the bench seats, it might seem longer if you are sat up all the journey. The village is on one side of the river, its a great setting, especially with the sun shining as it was grey on the way up, You then have to pay 1Rg to be dropped over the river to the Jungle/rainforest experience. We walked passed all the chalets and onto one of the various walks you can take, which was great, we then did the canopy walk for 5Rg which is a must. After, we walked up & up to get to Bukit Teresek(810M high) then steeply down the virtually untouched path on the other side, but I wouldn't recommend this unless you have a good sense of adventure, direction and a couple of hours to make your way back to the boat drop off jetty! Later the bus then drove us all the way back to Jerantut which is the main town south.

We went for a 3days visit to the taman negara park with han travel company. We had a great value for money, 3days including the travel from kuala lumpur, several excursions on the road (the batu caves, elephant sanctuary and deerland, which was not so special by the way) excursions in the park and on the river, accomodations and meals. Very nice excursions, professional and friendly staff, only the food was a bit average as it was almost the same every day. However, we enjoyed the 3days very much and I would recommend this if you have limited time and money, but still looking for a complete jungle excursion.

I was @Taman Negara December 2012 with my wife. I used one tour operator from KL. And they gave us a excellent support. I enjoyed here a lot.
