‘Taman Negara’ literally translates to ‘national park’ in Malay. The name is appropriate for the oldest national park in Malaysia and one of the world’s oldest tropical rainforests. In the thick foliage are waterfalls and some beautiful scenery. One can opt for trekking, rafting, fishing, elephant or bird watching, or taking a walk along the long walkway to catch a glimpse of the life high up on trees. Visitors can stay in Kuala Tahan across the river, and take an inexpensive ride to the park entrance.
