Gazetted as a National Park since 1938, the 130 million year old Taman Negara is the premier and largest national Park in Malaysia. Spread over 4000 square kilometres, this wild and virgin region is densely covered with ancient rainforest. Spanning the 3 states of Terengganu, Kelantan and Pahang, its protrusion into Pahang is the largest. Previously known as King George IV National Park, Taman Negara is meticulously conserved and jealously guarded as it is among the last remaining frontiers of pristine rainforest. The ecosystem of the park is one of the riches and most complex ever to be discovered in the region.
