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.

The vegetation of Belum Temenggor has not a majority of dipterocarp (such as Shorea albida in Borneo), but includes lowland dipterocarp, hill and upper dipterocarp as well. The land contains a range of forest types characterizing the Sundaland forests of Peninsular Malaysia. The rainforest hosts many endemic plant species: the Rafflesia azlanii, 46 species of palms (15 endemic), over 30 species of gingers, rare limestone flora and many others. In total, the forest is home to over 3000 species of flowering plants.


Spot a salt licks which are natural mineral deposit where animals in nutrient-poor ecosystems can obtain essential mineral nutrients. These areas are usually covered with all types of animal tracks. The Sambar Deer, the Kijangs, Tapirs, Elephants, wild boars, Seladang and the Malayan Gaur – come down to the licks, usually under the cover of the darkness.

Native people

Visit a Orang Asli Village. The only inhabitants in the forest are the native, the Orang Asli (aboriginals). They live in their traditional way in bamboo huts, hunting small mammals using blowpipes, fishing and gathering plants and honey from the forest. They have been recently participating in the process of monitoring activities to support forest and wildlife conservation action.

Recreational activities

Have fun with our bamboo rafts instead of “modern” kayaks. Normally, you paddle on bamboo rafts while standing on it, a bit like a Venetian gondolier! By night get ready your voice and enjoy our Karaoke video sound system.
