Taman Negara is a famous national park bordering three states: Pahang, Terengganu, and Kelantan. It was first established in 1938/39 as the King George V National Park, when the sultans of the three states were asked to set aside a piece of land for the creation of a protected area. After independence, it was then renamed Taman Negara.
The park encompasses a total area of 4,343 kilometres squared and is considered one of the world’s oldest tropical rainforests; said to be about 130 million years old. The park is known not only for wildlife sightings but also for their hiking trails; attracting adventurous souls from around the world either for a relaxing day tour or multi-day expedition.
