Wondering if it’s worth visiting Taman Negara on your Malaysian adventure?
A massive national park in the centre of Peninsular Malaysia, Taman Negara is the perfect place to get outdoors and enjoy the natural attractions that Malaysia offers. From thick rainforest to deep caves, this park is a dream come true for outdoor enthusiasts.
Taman Negara is calculated to be around 130 million years old and is home to one of the world’s oldest rainforests as well as the highest point in Peninsular Malaysia, Gunung Tahan.
This is the place to head to see the natural beauty of Malaysia. And it’s not far from Kuala Lumpur! In fact, you can even visit here on a day trip, although I highly recommend you stay longer.
In this episode, I’m discussing why (and when) you should visit Taman Negara, what to do when you’re there and where to stay as well as how to get there.
By the end of this episode, you’ll be all set for a visit to Taman Negara.
