Interesting Places In Malaysia

The Endau- Rompin State Park situated in Pahang, is one of the world's oldest tropical rainforests. The park is part of the Endau Rompin National Park covering a land area of 80,000 hectares of virgin jungle situated between the states of Pahang and Johor. It has some of the most fascinating wildlife, and tropical fauna.

Endau Rompin State Park is the second National Park, after Taman Negara. It covers an area of approximately 80,000 hectares of rich and exotic flora and fauna, encompassing the watershed of the rivers Endau and Rompin, from which it derives its name. In other words, this place is huge. The park is suitable for nature and adventure lovers, especially those wishing to get a glimpse of Malaysia's rich tropical rainforests. Some activities one can carry out at the park include jungle trekking, bird watching, camping, cave exploration and many other adventure and nature-based activities.

The park is home to a vast range of species of birds, mammals, frogs, insects and exotic varieties of orchids, herbs, medicinal plants and trees. In existence for over 130 million years, this rainforest holds rare flora and fauna, many of which are not found anywhere else in the tropics. The most prominent of these unique species is the Sumatran Rhinoceros. Regular treks through the jungle will give adventurers sightings of leaf monkeys, long-tail macaques, white-handed gibbons, elephants, deer, tapirs and the occasional tiger and leopard. For adventure lovers and river trekkers, there are exhilarating rapids and fairly substantial waterfalls.
