Discover the beauty of Temenggor

A full day nature excursion to explore the Temenggor nature reserve

The Temenggor nature reserve is located at the lower part of Belum-Temenggor forest complex. Although the rainforest is a single, contiguous ecosystem and there’s no biological difference between the upper Belum and the lower Temenggor, the areas are regulated differently. For visiting Temenggor you won’t need entry permits and thus entering this area will be less expensive.

Included in this experience: cruising the Temenggor lake by boat, trekking in the rainforest, spotting the Rafflesia, following elephants’ trail after a salt lick area, visiting an Orang Asli village and trekking to a waterfall deeper in the jungle. Packed lunches are included in your tour as well.

Highlights

Experience flora & fauna

Get the opportunity to trek in the World’s oldest rainforests, enjoy the waterfalls and get to know more about the extraordinary flora & fauna. Belum Temenggor is likely to be in existence for over 130 million years. It’s an ecosystem older than both the Amazon and the Congo. This is compatible with the age of the mountain ranges of Malaysia, which appeared through oogenesis at the beginning of the Mesozoic era.

Salt lick

After this, the boat will cruise again Temenggor lake towards an area locally known as Salt Lick. This is the location where animals gather – mostly elephants (Gajah means elephant in Malay language). These are natural dry mineral deposits that play an important role in the diet of many animal species. Especially for the Asian elephant (Elephas maximus). You will trek along the pachyderms trail and learn more about their habitat and life. Spotting elephants is definitely possible in Belum Temenggor. But it is a rare event as these animals are shy and will try to stay away from human crowds. In the remote eventuality of an encounter, you will have to strictly follow the nature guide’s instructions and remain quiet.

Orang Asli Village

After the salt lick you will proceed to visit an Orang Asli village (Please read our notes). This village is located nearby a jetty, which they use as a small trading outpost. The Orang Asli groups of Belum Temenggor live off hunting, fishing, gathering herbs and other natural resources. Then, they trade with the outside for items and goods they need in their communities. If you wish so, as a sign of appreciation for their hospitality and visiting their village, you can offer a present in the form of useful household items, food or clothing.

Waterfall

The last place you will visit in your day excursion will be a waterfall (Please read our notes). To get to the waterfall it’s necessary to trek for another 20/30 minutes along a river and crossing three small streams. During the wettest months, the water can get a bit higher so your feet and lower legs could get wet. Once you reach the waterfall, you can rest by the area, relax in this unique place surrounded by the silence and beauty of the rainforest. You can take a bath in the natural pool if you wish so, and then take your packed lunch here. After that, you will return back to Pulau Banding.
