    • Trekking in Taman Negara: multi-day, joined, February

      by marcusfy Online Now Jan 16, 2016 at 2:05 AM

      Dear all,

      I'll visit Malaysia in mid/late February and want to trek with a guide for about 3 days (2 nights) in Taman Negara. I'm alone, cost for guide etc is too much for me.

      1. I heard monsoon is very weak this year. How "advisable" is trekking then (15-20 Feb)?
      2. How are the chances of meeting fellow travelers if I just show up there and want to leave the next day?
      3. How worthwhile is it to spend a few days there if nobody shows up? How much will I be able to see?

      Thanks in advance!


    • How to book a visit to the Orang Asli village in Taman Negara Malaysia?

      by DevilGurl Online Now Jan 13, 2016 at 2:00 AM


      My name is Rachel and my friends and I have a research paper on the aboriginal tribe - Batek Tribe in Taman Negara, Pahang Malaysia. We want to plan a visit to the Batek village and have an interview with the tribesmen so to have a deeper understanding of their cultures and traditions, but due to our financial limitations as students, we are having trouble finding a tour package that suits our needs and stays within our budgets. Do you have any idea how to book a tour guide and a boat trip to the village individually? Without going through tourism companies? Or do you have any alternative solutions? Thank you!!

      Does anyone know of a bus/taxi service that goes from Singapore/Johor Bahru to Jerantut/Kuala Tahan? The jungle train is currently out of service due to the floods last year.

      alternative way to visit taman negara

      by ArBanis Online Now Dec 3, 2014 at 12:14 PM

      We are traveling to malaysia in the summer 2015 and are looking for a great way to visit taman negara np. We don't like the touristy tourist things. Can anyone give us tips about a guided not very touristic trekking. We are not rhe kind of hero's that go in the park ourselves. Is there a possibility to arrange a private guide, and where can we find a good one?

      Thank you

      The best way to get to Kuala Tahan from Ipoh?

      by altmtl Online Now Dec 18, 2013 at 11:23 AM

      From what I've read I must take 3 buses - 1 to Temerloh, then one to Jerantut and then another to Kuala Tahan... Can I easily do this in one day? Or must I spend a night in Jerantut? The bus schedules I saw were a little confusing.Someone mentioned I might be better off going to KL and going from there? I was considering the Cameron Highlands as well but it just seems too touristy and overpriced and not really worth it?

Somebody know if is enough time for transfer between these 2 buses? There are another option for transfer (ex. boat + bus)? Thank you very much.

    • Taman Negara in November

      by JennTK Online Now Aug 29, 2013 at 5:31 PM

      My husband and I are planning a trip to Malaysia in November and are wondering if this is a good time to go to Taman Negara? I understand that it will be "monsoon" season in this part of the country, but I have read conflicting information re: travel to and closure of Taman Negara. None of the hotels had any problem accepting our reservations, but I don't want to get there and have everything be closed down. We are not afraid of some rain and understand that we will be in a jungle/rain forest, but don't want to get stranded. Any advise?
