Taman Negara

Taman Negara is Malaysia’s largest rainforest but its greatest draw is its claim to fame as one of the oldest in the world - a stunning 130 million years old!

Largest National Park

Originally named King George V National Park in 1938, the park was re-named Taman Negara which in Bahasa Malaysia means ‘National Park.’ The expansive 4,343 sq. km. park straddles three states of Malaysia – Kelantan, Pahang and Terengganu.

The virgin forest offers exciting opportunities for adventure, bird watching, nature walks, treks, boat rides, cave explorations, fishing and more.

Natural Treasures

The Park is also home to some rare animals like the Malayan Tiger and tapir as well as over 350 species of birds. Observation posts are built over salt licks so that visitors can enjoy close-up views of many exotic animals.

Finally, a walk on the world’s longest Canopy Walk, 40 metres above the forest floor, allows visitors to enjoy unmatched views of the park’s beauty.

 

Handy Tips:

  • All visitors must get permits for respective activities like fishing or for camera usage.
  • If you plan on trekking, do stock up on plenty of fluids. There are no stores along the trails or deep within the forest.
