Trekking for 2 hours in the rainforest of Taman Negara — home to many threatened animal species including tigers, elephants, tapirs, rhinos and sun bears — is just one of several adventures offered on this day trip from Kuala Lumpur. After a visit to Batu Caves, see the treetops on a canopy walk and learn about the abundant flora and fauna with your nature guide. You'll get onto the river and shoot the rapids then watch a blowpipe demonstration at an Orang Asli aboriginal village. Lunch and transport included.
This was a great tour but be prepared to spend a lot of time climbing stairs on the hike.
Fantastic trip, worth the investment of the day during our holiday and great value. We were very well looked after and group sizes are small so you really feel like you are getting a personal tour.
Ram was brilliant and really looked after us, the food and local/regional snacks that he arranged during the journey and for lunch were great. The tour guide in the forest was also fantastic, very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable and you could chat and ask any questions and get a real understanding about the forest, the people and wildlife. The trip, down the river to see the aboriginal village was enthralling and such a privilege to be able to do. Be prepared for a pretty steep hike in the forest, but the steps and trails are good, so good trainers/strong footwear will be ok for you. You also need to be prepared to walk across authentic rope canopy bridges as you see in the pictures so need to have a head for heights and the movement/swinging of the bridges as you cross them, but it all felt well managed and safe. You could miss the rope bridges, and stay on the ground with the tour guide if you didn't fancy that bit of the tour, so no need to be put off by that.
Its not clear in the tour instructions but you can leave your change of clothes in the tour bus ready for when you get back to the village after the river ride where you will get very wet! so its ok to take a full change of clothes and a towel so you can dry off and get comfortable for the drive back to KL. Brilliant tour, one of the best we have ever done.
Excellent tour we enjoyed it very much especially our Guide/Driver Ram was very friendly/knowledgeable and made our tour as the most memorable.
Amazing!!!!!! Our guides were great! Ram made stops along the way so we could try different local foods. DJ escorted us on the jungle walk and sky trek. It’s a whole other kind of beautiful. Be prepared to sweat like crazy! It’s hot and humid. Loose clothing is best! I loved visiting th local villag
Was picked up on time and were at the Batu Caves early with very few people there. Great guide/driver who went out of his way to show us the local area. Thoroughly enjoyed the river ride, national park and native village. Had personal time with the villagers. Great people, great day!!!
Amazing tour to the jungle. Whilst only a peak at what can be seen and experienced with a longer stay, well worth the visit.
TAKE A DRY SET OF CLOTHES.
You will get wet and need to change.
First stop after being collected from hotel by Elvin Raj was a visit to Batu caves to see the caves and Hindu temples. As it is an earlier start the site is not busy giving a good chance to view. Elvin gives a brief overview of the site and lets us explore. Then off on a two hour road trip to Taman Negara. Elvin kept the journey interesting by pointing out various items on the way and giving some knowledge on local life.
On arriving we took a boat trip upstream to the jungle canopy. Hot and humidity we were taken by DJ our guide for the day up through the jungle to to peaks and a canopy walk. Not a trek for old or physically weak. I was the oldest at 59 and struggled in the conditions. Pace was kept slow for me and the group of us all stayed together. Well worth the puffing and panting for the view of the jungle from above. If you are looking to see animals you will be disappointed as they stay away, other than the insects, which DJ pointed out.
On returning to our starting point we had lunch followed by a further trek up river through rapids, where you will get wet on the return, to an aboriginal village. The villagers will show you how to make fire in less than a minute and how to make blowpipe darts and to fire them.
Excellent guides and a super trip.
Super great day! Tour guide Chandra was ABSOLUTELY awesome! DJ one of the guides on site was really good too. Beautiful drive out to the site. Great lunch! Great day in village, boating and climbing mountain. HIGHLY recommended tour!
We had the best time of our lives!!!! DJ our jungle guide was spectacular and all the adventures we went on were mind blowing. I have no bad things to say about our experience with them or Viator. If you are looking for a great way to experience things on a time frame, Viator is the way to go. Our driver pick us up from our hotel, talked with us the whole way up to Taman Negara Jungle, explained everything and gave us great information about the culture of Malaysia. If you are in Malaysia and are looking for something to do, definitely go with them and make sure you request DJ for your trekking and Thurai as your driver. You can't go wrong and you WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!! Thanks guys, we will definitely be back!!!!
Definitely recommended for nature lovers who want a day out of the city!
Service and education was excellent. Just few animals to see.
