The Batu Caves is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India, dedicated to Lord Murugan. It is the focal point of Hindu festival of Thaipusam in Malaysia. read more.....

Elephant Sanctuary Kuala Gandah, this centre was established in 1989 by the Department of Wildlife and National Parks. A base for the Elephant Relocation Team which started in 1974.

Being the only centre in Malaysia, the team is dedicated to locating, subduing, translucent problem elephants from areas where their habitats are constantly being encroached by plantations, to Malaysia's National Parks such as Taman Negara, Kenyir Lake.

Over the past 25 years the strong team has helped to prevent the further decline of the elephant population by relocating more than 300 wild elephants!

Kuala Gandah also aims to promote public awareness of the elephant's plight in Malaysia and to support research into elephant translocation and conservation. It also aims to educate the public about the importance of habitat and environmental preservation.

Taman Negara, spread out over 4,343 sq. km of the formidable Titiwangsa Mountain range in Taman Negara - one of the world's oldest Rainforest. A sanctuary to hundreds of species of birds, butterflies, insects, fish and plants. Home to Malaysia's friendly aborigines, the Orang Asli. A shy yet gentle race, they continue to live the nomadic way they have lived for centuries although fully aware of the country's fast-paced progress.

Come discover the living treasures Mother Nature has to offer . Whether it's shooting thrilling rapids, exploring spectacular caves, tackling a 20 pound fish, scaling up peninsular Malaysia's highest mountain, trekking through dense, thick forest pathways or swimming in crystal clear pools, Malaysia's National Park is a natural paradise you must experience. An adventure of a lifetime awaits you here.

World's Longest Canopy Walkway

Installed about 30 to 40 meters high and stretching over 400 meters, this is the world's longest canopy walkway. From here, you get a closer look at life at the top of the world's oldest tropical rainforest. read more.....

Cameron Highlands is Malaysia's largest and best-known hill resort. Discovered by, and named after William Cameron, a government surveyor who, in 1885 explored the area by hacking a path up through dense jungle and came across, "A fine plateau shut in by mountains". At 1525m above sea level the area enjoys a cool climate, with temperatures no higher than 20°C and rarely falling below 10°C, a welcome change to the generally oppressive heat and humidity at sea level.

Nestling the borders of Pahang and Perak provinces are the Cameron Highlands, Malaysia's most popular hill station destination. It is actually an area of tremendous natural beauty, encompassing tea farms, vegetable fields, flower gardens and challenging hiking trails with rushing waterfalls. It also finds tremendous favor with many budget travelers because of its cool climate which is in stark contrast to the hot, humid weather in most parts of the region. read more.....
