About Travel to Taman Negara
Covering an area of 4,343 square kilometres, Taman Negara is the largest national park in mainland Malaysia, and it contains the tallest hill in Malaysia, Gunung Tahan. There are four different public entrances to the Taman Negra, but the one at Kuala Tahan is by far the most popular as the most accessible of the activities in the park are located near the Kuala Tahan entrance, as is the only resort within the park itself, the very comfortable Mutiara Taman Negara. Whichever entrance to the park you use you will need to pay the entrance fee of 1 MYR per person and 5 MYR per camera. Other activities within the park, such as tours, need to be paid for separately.
There are a wide range of things to do and see in the Taman Negara. The park is home to a lots of different types of birds, animals, plants, trees, insects, snakes and leeches. It has rivers and challenging hiking trails, as well as indigeneous tribes living in traditional villages supplementing their incomes by inviting in tourists. For a fee they will show you how to use their blowpipes. Many of the more adventurous activities, however, require a fair amount of planning and they cost a relatively large amount of money to participate in. To climb Gunung Tahan, for example, you need to hire a guide to take you on a 6 to 7 day trek carrying all your own supplies to reach the summit and return back to the park entrance.
For families, and those with less time, the main activities in the Taman Negara include:
- Walking along the 530 metre long Canopy Walkway, which is suspended 40 to 50 metres above the ground. The walkway is near the entrance, and costs an additional 5 MYR per person.
- Walk to Bukit Bukit Teresek, which is a view point at the top of small hill. It takes around 90 minutes to walk there and back from the entrnce to the park.
- Boat trip to Lata Berkoh. Lata Berkoh is a set of small rapids which you can reach by boat in about 45 minutes. The cost of hiring a boat for the round trip should be around 160 MYR for 2 to 4 people.
