This excursion is a whole day and is comprised of several elements:
Jungle hike and canopy walk
A fairly steep 30-45 minute walk brings you to the top of the 334 meter high Teresek Hill from where you have impressive views of the national park (weather permitting). A spectacular canopy walk leads through the top of the forest ridge, over 9 suspension bridges. The walkway stands 40 meters above ground and 300 meters long where picturesque trails, beautiful skies and a symphony of sounds of nature, greet you.
After a boat trip, you arrive at the Berkoh waterfall, where you can take a refreshing swim. You can also relax at the river banks.
NB: During the monsoon season (November-March) swimming at Lata Berkoh is discouraged, as the river can then be very rough. The visit to the waterfall is then replaced by a visit to an Orang Asli settlement. The people are a friendly group of native inhabitants and you will see their fascinating blowpipe and fire making skills displayed; skills that are essential to their lifestyle.
Note : A fee of MYR5 per person is recommended as a gratitude for Orang Asli.
Nightly jungle walk
During a nightly walk through Malaysia's oldest national park, the dense jungle shows a completely different side. Sounds intensify and animals that prefer to keep themselves hidden during the day, come out in the evening. You will not see larger animals because of the immense size of the park and their wariness of the tourists. Smaller creatures such as tarantulas and big red ants, make this walk an exciting and unique experience. The guide can tell you all about the flora and fauna. Try to be quiet during this excursion, otherwise you will scare off animals. And take a flashlight!
