Taman Negara National Park.

Taman Negara covers 4343 sq km damp and thick virgin jungle aging in approximately 130 million years.

Inside this buzzing tangle, ancient trees with gargantuan buttressed root systems dwarf luminescent fungi, orchids, two-tone ferns and even the giant rafflesia . Hidden within the flora are Asian elephants, tigers, leopards and rhinos, as well as smaller wonders such as flying squirrels, but these animals stay far from the park’s trails and sightings are extremely rare.

However i can nearly guarantee that you will come up close and personal with harmless leeches (they will follow you if you run )and an impressive array of flying and crawling insects no matter how much bug repellent you put on. Staying at the seen rather better days,faulty towers like Woodlands Resort you don’t even have to leave you room to experience this. Their standard rooms are musty cave-like and in the basement and the corridors are like a mass graveyard. On the plus side was the swimming pool perfect for an afternoon cool down or for drying your clothes.

There are many activities to encounter whist spending a few days in the park.

Jungle trekking gets you up close and personal and also very sweaty just like being in a steam room but slightly noisier . The 1.7Km to Bukit Teresek takes you to a peak at 334M .Rewarding you with magnificent panoramic views of Gunung Tahan fabulous forest canopies that cover the hills and valleys.

Inside the park is the longest suspension bridge in the world, 510M long and 45M above the ground level.one of the most memorable memories for you to bring home even it the views don’t do it standing on the wobbly platforms will.

Boating can be either a relaxing ,peaceful ride or an exhilarating ride that faces seven rapids along Tembeling River. There are opportunities to swim in the warm waters but even on quieter sections you need to be aware to the hidden currents.

After all the days activities dinner can be had in one of the simple yet very tasty floating restaurants.
