Located in Malaysia’s Titiwangsa Mountains, Taman Negara National Park comprises 1,677 square miles (4,343 square kilometers) of densely forested area, making it the largest national park in peninsular Malaysia and one of the most pristine primary rainforests left on the planet. Famous for its rich biodiversity, the park is home to exotic and endangered species such as elephants, leopards, tigers and many more types of birds and insects than one could ever hope to see in a single visit.
For many years, Taman Negara National Park was only accessible by way of boat, and jungle cruises remain one of the most popular means of wildlife spotting. More intrepid travelers can hire a guide for treks into the rainforest that vary in length from a few hours to several days. For a different perspective on the jungle environment, take the Canopy Walk, a suspension bridge perfect for spotting colorful birds hiding in the tree branches.
