In 1925, an area covering over 1,300 square kilometers in Pahang were gazetted as Gunung Tahan Game Reserve by the then British colony. 13 years later, the Sultan of Pahang, Terengganu and Kelantan set aside the present area for conservation and known as "King George V National Park".
After Malaysia gained independent in 1957, it was renamed as Taman Negara and has become Malaysia's premier National Park and the largest in the country. Taman Negara (National Park) straddles the borders of Kelantan, Pahang and Trengganu in Peninsular Malaysia.
A totally protected area of 4,343 sq km, Taman Negara is one of the world's oldest tropical rain forests. The diversity of its fauna and flora is a result of undisturbed evolution over 130 million years.
Unspoilt and undisturbed, an unforgettable experience awaits you at this premier National Park just three hours drive from Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia and two-half hours from Kuala Tembeling Jetty Point.
Deep within the heart of Taman Negara lies this quiet retreat, surrounded by nothing but nature and the sense of impending adventure.
