TAMAN NEGARA: The world’s oldest rainforest

Defy the odds.  Walk on the world’s longest canopy walkway.  Go ride against the water.  Get close to nature in the world’s oldest rainforest, Taman Negara.

Set your eyes on the world’s oldest rainforest, Taman Negara, which is estimated to be 130 million years old.  The wealth of nature here is simply astonishing, from primeval rainforest, cascading waterfalls, rivers, rare wildlife to amazing flora and fauna.

Your adventure in Taman Negara begins as your longboat meanders along the beautiful river, passing by quaint villages along the river side.  A slide show about Taman Negara will you get acquainted with the place.  An amazing jungle walk will make you tune into nature, whether it is an evening walk or a nature trail to Teresik Hill.  Enjoy the thrill and excitement of feeling on top of the world as you walk the world’s longest canopy which is 500 metres long and strung up to 40 metres above the forest floor.

You will have the opportunity to relax and enjoy the cascading waterfalls, or swim in the deep pool at Lata Berkoh.  Or for more thrills, sharpen your shooting skills with rapid shooting at Kuala Trenggan with the aborigines.  Or just learn about and be in awe of the simple rustic lifestyle of the aborigines.

For lunch, it is truly a different experience in a setting most unthinkable to you – picnic style scrumptious lunch at Lubok Simpon river pool or a sumptuous buffet spread laid out on a boat for your taking!  By night, get all excited and dress up in “jungle costumes” for a Jungle Theme Dinner.

Your trip to the Taman Negara will always be filled with endless thrills and spills, from jungle trekking, fishing, wildlife watching, rapid shooting, swimming, climbing, caving, photography or bird watching.  For those interested in research, Taman Negara’s rich flora and fauna and wildlife are perfect for botanic work and science-related projects.

All in all, leave nothing behind but footsteps and memories of a successful corporate trip here at Taman Negara!  Make your next visit here!

A traditional dish made with fermented durian, tempoyak has a soft and creamy texture which is yellowish in colour.  It is a popular side dish made from fresh durian flesh. The flesh is removed from the seed and mixed with salt.  It is then fermented for about two days before use and can last for a long time if stored in the refrigerator.  Fresh tempoyak has a strong pungent smell and tastes sour and salty.  It is not consumed on its own but added to spicy local dishes to enhance its taste and thicken the gravy.  Alternatively, it can also be steamed with fish and eaten with rice.
