Jungle Trekking in Tioman

Home / Tickets / Update* / Blog

Jungle trekking aficionados will have a blast in Tioman. After all, the island is pretty much covered by thick tropical rain forest. In fact, Tioman is a veritable trekkers' paradise. And because the area is dotted with quite a few rolling hills of varying steepness, it offers all kinds of challenges to newbies and hard-core trekkies too.

Make sure you also climb Gunung Kajang, which, at over 1000 meters high, is quite an awesome challenge. But worry not, Tioman's' experienced guides always make sure that the pace is nice and suitable for everyone to keep up and enjoy the trek. Because that's what it's all about, the joy of being immersed by the tranquillity of all that nature has to offer, and of being one with your fellow trekkies in this evolutionary treasure of a jungle.

Apart from its diverse marine life, Tioman's inland rainforest area, encompassing approximately 12,383 hectares, is a strictly enforced nature reserve.

But don't forget to bring your mountain boots or sturdy sneakers, because you'll come across your fair share of fallen tree trunks, thorny tendrils, mossy boulders and slippery slopes. Let's face it, it wouldn't be fun without some serious obstacles to conquer.

Come and take the road less travelled. Explore the immense beauty of Gunung Kajang, as you trek deep into this remote mountain rainforest still quite untouched by tourism. Use below form to go jungle trekking.

Tip: The main tip I'd give all those who are keen to stay at Juara Rompin Resort is that it makes sense to book in advance. Whilst Tioman used to be busy just around the summer holiday months, August to September, it now appears as if staying in Tioman is now feasible throughout the year. In other words, booking your hotel and ferry in advance is a prudent decision.
