Get ready to pump up the adrenaline at Taman Negara. Aug 06, 2010
Adventure, Adventure and more Adventure is what i could thrive on. And what better than a place as pristine as Taman Negara in Pahang. Over here we watched a diversity of plants and animals, colourful birds, vivid insects and rare species of fish. A 434,350 hectare park, here you will see giant buttresses, limestone caves, cascading waterfalls, jungle clad mountains, what a perfect way to spend the monsoons.
So ready to pump up the adrenaline? Now imagine strolling along the world’s longest canopy walkway in the world! Situated at about 550 m and suspended at about 40 m above the ground, this canopy is a USP of Taman Negara.
We walked along this fabled canopy and saw amazing rainforests from all perspectives. You will be intrigued to know is that no nails were used in the construction of this walkway and wooden spacers are placed between the bark and the cable and ropes to ensure that the trees are not harmed. Interesting?
If you thought this was it then you’re certainly wrong, for Taman Negara hosts a slew of activities for the rugged adventurer. We trekked along dense jungles and went on a boat trip up Sungai Tembeling from Kuala Tahan. Had an amazing time.
You still reading this article? Come on, pack your rucksack, sling your camera around, get into those rugged tracks and head to Taman Negara.
