THE TREKKING TRAIL
TAMAN NEGARA ACTIVITIES
Jungle Trekking
The park offers a network of clearly marked trekking trails which you can easily and safely foot trek the jungles of the tropical rainforest. While trekking, surround yourself with nature and enjoy the environment of the virgin jungle. You can see flora and fauna that are found along the trekking trail such as an army of ants carrying food along a path, monkeys, butterflies and small insects. Enjoy the view from a high point in Teresek Hill from where you can see at a distance, the highest mountain in West Malaysia, the Tahan Mountain.

Trekking Along Jungle Trails
Although there are signs along the trail path that shows you the location or directions, there are not many of them. Paths on the ground are clearly marked but sometimes can appear to vanish making it more harder to continue along the same path but you can still pick it up again.

Its important that you stay trekking within the regular trail paths and not deviate or move away to any unknown and unmarked virgin jungle areas. Anyone can get lost especially if you were to wander off trekking on any unknown paths or jungle areas. If you decide to trek on you own without the assistance from a qualified guide, do go in groups to give more confidence when faced with difficulties in finding the trail again. Also, there's safety in numbers. Of course you will most likely meet with many trekkers traversing the trail path.

There are two clearly marked trail paths named as...
~ Keniam Trail

Learning About Nature
Park Qualified Nature Guide
One can choose to trek the trail without engaging a guide but engaging one do have its advantages. An experienced qualified guide can show and describe many of the flora and fauna that you may see or encounter along the trail. You are very lucky if you do see any small animals along the trail path such as the tapir, the kancil mousedeer because most animals do shy away from places where people tread. Along the trail path, there will be other paths that have signs that displays "Beyond this point, you should engage a guide" so all trekkers should NOT use those paths without a guide because of safety reasons.
NOTE: Gua Telingga (Ear Cave) is located within the Tenor Trail (about 2.5 hour trek from Kuala Tahan). However, the Park management has recently closed all exploration inside this cave until further notice due to safety concerns. Please check at the Park Management office in Kuala Tahan for further information.
