We had a short visit to Malaysia and Taman Negara National Park. Unbeknownst to us, many of the attractions in the park, like overnight trekking, were closed for monsoon season. It pays to do seasonal research! On the upside, the park was almost empty, and the accommodations were much cheaper. Our visit was still enjoyable, but much more relaxed than anticipated.
Taman Negara is said to be the oldest rainforest in the world. Making it a must visit while in Malaysia, and the opportunity to see it from above made the canopy walkway a must do.
View from Kuala Tahan, in Malay, kuala means confluence. The Tembeling and Tahan River conflux has a distinct line of two different colored waters before mixing into a muddy brown.
A small portion of the canopy walk was closed during our visit, reversing the direction of the walk, ending with these stairs instead of beginning.
Mama Chop is one of several floating restaurants in Kuala Tahan, directly across the river from the park entrance.
This building was previously a floating restaurant. Someone brought it up a hill only for it to fall half way back down the hill.
