“Boat House trip on Temenggor Lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2014

I joined a group of 46 people and fented 2 bot houses for 3 days and 2 nights cruising the Temenggor Lake and hiking along the way. It was a new and amazing experience, the houseboat is very basic, but comfortable enough, there is a toilet, kitchen and rooms, the night was really cool so we dont have to worry about having no air conditioning, most of us brought pillows to make our sleep comfortable. The forst day was spent visiting orangbasli villages, its bery interesting to observebtheir simple life. On the first night we had a fantastic barbeque.mthe second day we went biking to see anumal footprints, the hike itself is an experience as the ancient rainforest makes you feel small and puny. Later we cruised to Sg ruok where we hiked for 30 mi jtes to reach a waterfall and pond in the rainforest where we swim. The pond is also a bredding ground for a carp type fish called Kelah that is prozed by anglers. A fantastic and refreshing dip in the clean mountain waters. The second night we spent in the boat as it rained and our night walk was cancelled, nontheless, we kept purselves busy by holding games, singing karaoke and play cards till late. The last day was spent visiting a rafflesia site, unfortunately the flowers were at the early stages and we only founds buds, we replaced this by having a last swim in the lake before departing for the jetty. Nontheless, staying and sleeping on the houseboat was a new profound expereince on itself. We were basically camping in the middle of the Temenggor Lake. We swam inthe lake ,in a pond in tye middle sof the raninforest and went hiking to experience the majesty of the ancient rainforest.

To those heading for Temenggor I stronlgly recommend going in a large group of at least 10 people and rent a houseboat at least 2 nights and experience what we did. Its not just for the sake of staying on a boat but the spiriti of camraderies developed during the journey and the calmness of having tye Belum rainforests majesty blossom in fromt if you as the clumsy houseboats inches forward

“beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

The scenery in this area is beautiful. I would be happy just spending the day in a boat. The resort is more than just a collection of chalets and restaurant, it is an experience. The owner and staff are very friendly. The hikes in the forest are challenging enough to make you tired. Fishing and canoeing are great fun.

Food was excellent.bring your own beer if you want to and put it in the fridge.

Stay two nights and enjoy.

“Biodiversity at its best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

One of the few well protected highly biodiversified protected national park in Peninsular Malaysia. Some of the the world's most threatened mammals can be found here still roaming freely in this natural habitat, namely the Malayan Tiger, the white-handed Gibbon, Asiatic Elephant, Malaysian Sunbear, Sumatran Rhinoceros and Malayan Tapir. A must see for all ecotourist.

“Belum Rainforest - Untouchable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014

Where in the earth that you can reach the 1500 years old of virgin, untouch and excited rainforest with 4 hours riding from Main City Of Kuala Lumpur ?

The Belum rainforest is the most recommended to all.. Study the nature with or without your family.. Visiting the village of Orang Asli.. Waterfall, Lake view and most amazing Raflesia..
