Jungle Trekking & Inner jungle in Pahang National Park

Pahang National Park has two different types of forest trekking, trekking to Bukit Teresek and trekking in the inner jungle.

National Park is one of the most exciting and best places for nature lovers who love trekking activities as it comprises a high-density tropical rainforest, rich in diverse natural treasures such as impressive flora and fauna.

Jungle Trekking

Jungle trekking can be relaxed by selecting the route to Bukit Teresek where it is 1.7 km from Wildlife Headquarters. To reach the summit of Bukit Teresek, it only takes 30 – 45 minutes to travel. When you are at this height of 334m, you will be presented with a panoramic view of Mount Tahan if the weather is in good condition. You will also be able to see the canopy rainforest in the splendid hills and valleys. If you find a boarding pass, it is the route that will take you to the Canopy walkway, which is one of the longest canopy walkway in the world.

Inner Jungle

Meanwhile, another more challenging jungle trekking route is the path leading to the inner jungle. Jungle trekking in this section requires a natural lover who has a high level of physical and mental strength. This is because the distance travelled for hours, through the natural path, goes downhill many times, runs through rivers and overnight in the jungle. Overnight stay in the jungle is either in the cave, in the roof or in the Orang Asli village.

Apart from Bukit Teresek, among the interesting destinations you can explore is Lata Berkoh, Chegar Dog, Kuala Terenggan, Bumbun Kumbang, and also Cave Kepayang Besar.

Throughout this jungle trekking and inner jungle activity, you have the opportunity to witness the true nature of the jungle such as clutches, giant trees that have existed hundreds of years in which the trunk is bigger than human beings, encounters unique mushrooms and fungi, peaceful forest birds, and feel the clear and cool river water is refreshing. Everything is beautifully kept in the world’s oldest forests.
