Taman Negara 2 nights
Day 1 KL/Taman Negara National Park: Travel by road for about three hours via the scenic Genting Sempah Mountain Pass. Watch as the vegetation along the river banks gradually becomes dense as it leads into the virgin rainforest, believed to be the oldest in the world, at approx. 130 million years old. Arrive at Kuala Tahan in the late afternoon. The evening is at leisure. You may choose to join the jungle night walk after dinner.
Day 2 Taman Negara: Subject to weather conditions, the opportunity awaits to join a guided walk through the rainforest to the longest Canopy Walk in the world at a length of 500 metres and high above the ground. In the afternoon, you will take a motorised canoe up the Tahan River tributary landing on the riverside deep in the forest. A half an hour's walk brings you to the waterfalls of Lata Berkoh, where you can take a refreshing dip in the river.
Day 3 Taman Negara/KL: After breakfast, board the ferry to make the short crossing to the other side of the river and the town of Kuala Tahan. Your driver will pick you up for the return journey to KL.
