With a reputation as the oldest rainforest in the world, Taman Negara has solidified its standing as a true adventure in waiting. A massive park at the center of the Malay peninsula, it is also home to its highest mountain, Gunung Tahan (2,187 meters/7,175 feet), which is a six day hike along the Kuala Tahan trail, an excursion only for the in-shape traveler.
Other attractions include the canopy walk (the world's longest), the spectrum of wildlife (elephants, rhinos, tigers, etc.), kayaking the Sungai Tembeling, spelunking in Gua Telinga, rock climbing, and, for the anthropologist in us all, the Batek and Semokberi tribes of Orang Asli. Visit the included site for much more information on park entrances, fees, and other pertinent information.
