However, it certainly won’t be the only natural attraction you will get to see on your path. So prepare to be amazed by the richness and diversity of the rain forest and its enormous various plant and flower species.

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 on their habitat and life. Spotting elephants is definitely possible in Belum Temenggor. Bu,t 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 follow strictly the nature guide’s instructions and remain quiet.
