Taman Negara

Home / Tickets / Update* / Blog

Pro Tip: Larkin Bus Terminal

Previously named King George V National Park, this huge swath of untouched tropical rainforest was renamed Taman Negara, Malay for "National Park", after Malaysia gained its independence.

Taman Negara covers over 4000 square kilometers of verdant jungle and, at more than 130 million years old, Taman Negara is regarded as the world's oldest tropical rainforest and truly is a destination you do not want to miss whilst in Malaysia.

Taman Negara straddles 3 separate states: Pahang, Kelantan and Terengganu, where Pahang has the largest park area and Terengganu the smallest. The 3 state parks are called Taman Negara Pahang, Taman Negara Kelantan and Taman Negara Terengganu, respectively.

Taman Negara plays a major role as an ecotourism hotspot in Malaysia and offers several world-class attractions that are interesting for their biological and geological significance. Examples are: Gunung Tahan, Peninsular Malaysia's highest point, the Gua Telinga cave network and the Lata Berkoh rapids. And if you're planning a visit to Taman Negara, be sure not to miss the unbelievable Canopy Walkway either, a unique and most memorable experience.

Taman Negara is home to some of the world's rarest mammal species, the Sumatran Rhinoceros. Other animals you may well catch a glimpse off in Taman Negara are black leopard, tapir, the Asian elephant, gibbon, deer, bison and even the rare Malayan Tiger. After all, it is still spotted in the park every now again.

In Taman Negara you'll experience the timelessness of this deepest, densest and most mysterious of all the jungles in Malaysia. Come face to face with Taman Negara's original tribes, the Orang Asli, in their most remote settlement. These "Original People" have inhabited Taman Negara's primary jungles since ancient times. You'll be blown away by their awesome nature skills and their basic yet sustainable way of life.

To get from Singapore to Taman Negara, we recommend you take the bus to Kuantan in the state of Pahang. Once you've reached Kuantan, you can get on the bus to Jerantut, which departs at 9 am and costs about RM 12-15. You can then take a mini-bus to Kuala Tembeling jetty. Next is a leisurely 3-hour boat ride up the Tembeling River to Kuala Tahan in Taman Negara... Sure, it's a long journey, but Taman Negara will be more than worth it.
