EcoTourism Of Malaysian Best Tropical Rainforest.
Camping, Trekking (Hiking), Mountain Climbing.

Malaysia's tropical rainforest is unique and it's the oldest rainforest in the world, with a large biodiversity of valuable plants and animals. The discovery of herbal plants in these jungles. Rainforests are forests characterized by high rainfall, with definitions setting minimum normal annual rainfall between 1750–2000 mm (68-78 inches). The monsoon trough, alternately known as the inter-tropical convergence zone, plays a significant role in creating Earth's tropical rain forests. 40% to 75% of all species on the world's habitats are indigenous to the rainforests.

It has been estimated that many millions of species of plants, insects, and microorganisms are still undiscovered. Tropical rainforests have been called the "jewels of the Earth", and the "world's largest pharmacy", because over one quarter of natural medicines have been discovered there. Rainforests are also responsible for 28% of the world's oxygen turn over, often misunderstood as oxygen production, processing it through photosynthesis from carbon dioxide and storing it as carbon through biosequestration.

The undergrowth in a rainforest is restricted in many areas by the lack of sunlight at ground level. This makes it possible to walk through the forest. If the leaf canopy is destroyed or thinned, the ground beneath is soon colonized by a dense, tangled growth of vines, shrubs, and small trees called a jungle. There are two types of rainforest, tropical rainforest and temperate rainforest.




Trekking itinerary is a basic guideline only, therefore it can be slightly modified according to season or local events. Departure possible all year long(subject to confirmation).

Gunung Ledang Recreational Forest

Shrouded with mystical legends and folklore, Gunung Ledang continues to charm and intrigue locals and visitors alike. According to the legend of the Princess of Gunung Ledang, the sultan demanded that the beautiful princess present him with seven jars of women's tears, seven trays of mosquitoes' hearts and seven bowls of the sultan's son's blood. Unable to meet these impossible requests, she fled to the mountain and continues to live in a hidden cave.

The mountain is also ideal for a myriad of outdoor activities with challenging mountain trails; icy waterfalls; and exotic flora and fauna including many species of birds. At the relatively flat summit, which is 1,276 metres above sea level, a panoramic view of the Straits of Malacca and Sumatra coastline can been seen on a clear day. Also, a popular picnic spot is the Sagil Waterfall, at the base of the mountain.
 

 
Tasik Kenyir / Kenyir Lake
Located in the interior of Terengganu and spanning over 209, 199 hectares, Tasik Kenyir is the largest man-made lake in South East Asia. Sharing its border with Kelantan in the west and Pahang in the south, this immense lake also serves as another gateway to Taman Negara.
With about 340 islands which were once hilltops and highlands, more than 14 waterfalls, numerous rapids and rivers, Tasik Kenyir is also home to numerous species of freshwater fish and exotic wildlife. Rich with numerous types of flora and fauna, its vast boundary leads to endless discoveries and adventures. Its picturesque landscape of natural grandeur and tranquil serenity transforms Tasik Kenyir into a perfect getaway for city dwellers. A paradise where nature is at its very best, Tasik Kenyir is the perfect place for an adventure holiday.

Pengkalan Gawi, Completed in 1991, the Gawi Jetty serves as the main gateway to Tasik Kenyir. Here, transfers by boat can be made available to the resorts, chalets and lodges located at various parts of the lake. With the current and growing influx of tourist to Tasik Kenyir, plans are a foot for another gateway, the nearby Pengkalan Utama, which will be equipped with bigger and better facilities. Gawi is also the nearest access point to the National Park. Should you decide to head for the park, please remember to obtain a permit from the Wildlife Department Office at Kuala Berang or at the entrance point to the National Park at Tanjung Mentong, Tasik Kenyir.
With a water catchment area of 38,000 hectares, Tasik Kenyir is naturally a haven for freshwater fish. During the wet season, when rain falls almost every day, fish can be caught using your bare hands!. A recent study revealed that there are some 300 species of freshwater fish dwelling in this lake. The presence of protruding dead trees around the lake serves as a perfect breeding ground for these fish as algae growing on dead trees and branches serve as the main form of sustenance for the fishes. Most of these fish thrive in the rivers flowing ito Kenyir, especially near estuaries where nutrients are found in abundance. From studies and observations conducted by the Department of Fisheries, species such as the big Lampam Sungai, Lalang, Parang, Kawan, Terbul and Sebarau are found in waters in and around the dead trees. This indicates that these fish have successfully colonized these areas and proved that dead trees have become an important part of the lake. Large scale fish breeding in cages at Tasik Kenyir has shown tremendous success. Research conducted by the Fisheries Department estimate that 60 to 100 tonnes of fish can be harvested annually from the lake. That’s why, Tasik Kenyir is known as an angler's heaven where fishing is concerned. With the many rivers and tributaries serving as breeding grounds, hundreds of species of fish like Kelisa, Kelah, Toman, Baung, Sebarau and Lampam, to name just a few, are found in abundance. Good fishing spots are at Cacing, Leban, Petuang, Saok, Sg.Terenggan and many others. Anglers are advised to arrange for special fishing trips through chalet or private boat operators for the best fishing location and please remember that a fishing permit is required from Wildlife Department for fishing in the National Park.

The hill regions of Tasik Kenyir are a world of untouched virgin tropical jungle estimated to be millions of years old. There is no exact estimate of the number of species of plants and wildlife existing within this vast ecosystem. Dipterocarpus shrounds the horizon and towering trees of the majestic Keruing, Meranti and Kapor loom above, while exotic animals roam freely below. For research scientists, nature lovers, adventurers and keen photographers, Kenyir promises to be a world of discovery. The highest peak in Lake Kenyir itself is Mount Chergau. Meanwhile Mount Gagau, with an elevation of 4,514 feet above sea-level, is the second highest peak in Taman Negara (National Park). Bewah and Taat, two towering limestone hills, abound with mystery and legends. These hills, occasionally shrouded in mist, provide some of the most spectacular sights in Tasik Kenyir. Before the creation of Tasik Kenyir, Taat had three caves and the lowest, the Tok Bidan Cave, is now submerged under water. This is the site where archaeologists and historians have uncovered artifacts such as kitchen utensils, axes and tools dating back to the Neolithic era. You can now explore the Taat Caves through its two visible entrances while the nearby Bewah Cave has only one entrance. Inside these caves an extraordinary sight of stalactites and stalagmites awaits the explorer. It is advisable to bring along torchlight should you explore Taat Cave. At Bewah Caves, Solar Lighting are available. As Taat and Bewah hold many secrets of the past, further excavations are now being planned by the authorities in a bid to unravel their mysteries. KETENGAH, with the cooperation of the State Museum and other government agencies, plans to provide better access to these caves.

Not all Caves are underground, but each of them are different from the other, each has something special to experience, enjoy and remember.
Why visit a cave ? Because caves are natural, out of the ordinary, worthwhile, wholesome, and fun for the individual or the whole family. Make this vacation memorable: - Visit a Cave or Cavern with Us!
