ATTRACTIONS - NATURE by Tourism Malaysia. www.tourism.gov.my POWERPOINT Adventure and nature lovers paradise The 950m-long Tree Top Walk in the Sedim River Recreation Park is the longest canopy walk in the world. The Tree Top Walk Sedim River was built within the low land of dipterocarp compartment 15 of Gunung Inas Forest Reserve. The spectacular view you get when you stroll through the jungle canopy is the main draw for visitors from far and wide to this quiet, all-natural corner of Kedah. Strolling high above the ground of this primeval rainforest affords visitors an unexpected and exciting perspective.
ATTRACTIONS - NATURE by Tourism Malaysia. www.tourism.gov.my POWERPOINT Adventure and nature lovers paradise Gazetted in 1991, Batang Ai National Park shelters many protected animals. It also serves as a water catchment area for a huge artificial lake, creating the Batang Ai Hydro - electric dam. The lake extends up to the Engkari and Ai Valleys, where the scenery complements an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity. Because of the limited facilities available within the park, the best way to see it is by arranging to be part of a longhouse tour. You'll get a chance to meet natives of the Iban tribe and discover how they live in their communal house and how they interact non-destructively with nature.
ATTRACTIONS - NATURE by Tourism Malaysia. www.tourism.gov.my POWERPOINT Adventure and nature lovers paradise Mulu Caves National Park is home to one of the longest networks of caves in the world. Here lies one of the worlds largest underground chamber, the Sarawak Chamber, capable of accommodating forty Boeing 747 airplanes. In Mulu, you will also find one of the worlds biggest cave passage, Deer Cave, which can fit five cathedrals the size of Saint Pauls in London. Another key attraction is Clear Water Cave, the longest cave in Southeast Asia. The massive caves here are home to millions of bats and cave swiftlets that swarm out into the jungle in great clouds every evening at dusk! You will be pleasantly surprised by some of the best examples of tropical limestone weathering in the world, including enormous razor-sharp pinnacles, deep-cut canyons, appropriately named The Pinnacles. There are tough but rewarding multi-day hikes available from the resort. A guide and porter are recommended.
ATTRACTIONS - NATURE by Tourism Malaysia. www.tourism.gov.my POWERPOINT Adventure and nature lovers paradise The Sepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary is a fascinating place where visitors can observe trainers teaching orphaned or displaced Orang Utan apes to climb in their natural habitat. At this rehabilitation centre, captive animals are retrained for life in the jungle. The centre allows a close-up view of these arboreal creatures. The best time to visit is at 10.00 am and again at 2.30 pm when the primates emerge from the forest for their daily ration of bananas and milk. You can see the orangutans being fed from a platform in the centre. Nicknamed the 'Wild Man of Borneo the Orangutans are returned to the forest when they can fend for themselves.
ATTRACTIONS - NATURE by Tourism Malaysia. www.tourism.gov.my POWERPOINT Adventure and nature lovers paradise Taman Negara (National Park) is the first and the oldest official protected forest area in the country, originally named King George V National Park. Declared in 1938 by the Sultans of Kelantan, Pahang and Terengganu (during King George's Silver Jubilee), it was gazetted to preserve the land's indigenous nature in perpetuity. The park was renamed Taman Negara after the nation gained independence in 1957. The most popular activities at Taman Negara are river cruises and jungle trekking. The canopy walk is also a must-see, offering a fantastic close up view of activity in the rainforest canopy. Observation huts are another great way to observe wildlife. Simple huts built high above the ground allow guests to stay overnight to catch opportunities to observe animals in their natural habitat. Cave exploration is also available, either by boat or by foot.
