Seasoned and novice trekkers will find that Malaysia has a lot to offer through its jungle trails. The nation’s extensive forest and wildlife reserves give nature lovers the chance to enjoy the lush environment of the tropics.

Veterans might want to attempt the trek to Gunung Tahan in Taman Negara, Pahang, while casual trekkers can sweat it out at the Forest Reserve Institute of Malaysia (FRIM), located in Kepong, north of Kuala Lumpur.

Other notable treks include those at Niah National Park, Mulu National Park, Kuala Selangor Nature Park, Selangor mangrove forest, Templers Park Selangor mountain forest, Ulu Bendol Negeri Sembilan mountain forest, Endau Rompin Johor Lowland rainforest, Gunung Ledang Johor Highland rainforest and Lambir National Park.

If you prefer trekking in cooler weather, jungle trails are available in Cameron Highlands and Fraser’s Hill.
