    Can't stop mother nature
    Joseph_K
    , Sep 2018
    Since we had to prevent mosquitoes, ticks, sun and scratches, we dressed in light long sleeves, long pants, socks, and sneakers that we sprayed with permethrin before we left for our vacation. We were not aware that the trek would be straight uphill in 90 degree heat and 100% humidity. When we got to the summit, the view was hazy. By the time we descended, we were literally dripping and drenched from head to toe in sweat. We then waited 2 hours in line for the canopy walk (Malaysia Day, a holiday on September 16 that we were also not aware of, caused this massive crowd). Then the skies opened up, it poured heavy rain, and they closed the canopy walk. So we never got to do that. Once it stopped raining, we took a boat ride to start another hike through slippery rocks and mud along a stream. We saw a nice waterfall at the end, but both of us slipped in the stream due to wet conditions. After we got back in the boat, things got better. We went to visit an aborigine village and saw them demonstrate firestarting and blowpipe darts, which was fun to watch. We then had another boat ride and a lunch that was fantastic. We ended the day at Batu Caves, which was impressive! Our guide bought us roti tissue, which was very thin fried dough with sugar cooked Indian style, and that was the best part of the day!The bottom line is that in a tropical rainforest, expect rain and very hot conditions. This was not anyone's fault, but we didn't have as good of a time as we could have if those conditions didn't occur. The guides were great and did the best they could under the circumstances.

    Great tour but be aware of lots of stairs and vertical paths and treking back & forth across streams

    It was a great day starting at the pickup from the hotel and the informative drive to Taman Negra. It is a 3 hour drive. Once you arrive you take a boat across the river into the national park. WE then started climbing up to 2 observation points. The other solo traveler in his early 30's in our party quit about 2/3 up and did not see either view. It was too strenuous for him. WE then did the canopy walk which was great. If you have fear of heights you may not want to do this walk very high above the forest floor. We then went on a rugged slightly marked trail walk thru the forest that crossed a small stream many times and ultimately to a small water fall. Our last stop in the park was a indigenous village where we saw how they made their darts and how they caught small animals. You could try it as well. We then had a wet ride thru the rapids on our way back to the dock. We were served a lunch of 3 dishes with water. Then a drive to Batu Caves and back to the hotel. You need to be prepared with appropriate clothes for a number of activities and there are not really any facilities to change. It was great but was fairly rugged with minimal facilities. Bring toilet paper.

    Amazing, the best part of our trip to Malaysia. But be careful of the walkway bridge, there is a section with a ladder. It takes patience and calm to walk on. There is an option to avoid the bridge. The boat ride is amazing. Make sure you take a change of clothes and make sure you change, you will fall ill otherwise. The Batu caves are amazing, but maybe do that on the way back.

    Fantastic trip, worth the investment of the day during our holiday and great value. We were very well looked after and group sizes are small so you really feel like you are getting a personal tour. Ram was brilliant and really looked after us, the food and local/regional snacks that he arranged during the journey and for lunch were great. The tour guide in the forest was also fantastic, very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable and you could chat and ask any questions and get a real understanding about the forest, the people and wildlife. The trip, down the river to see the aboriginal village was enthralling and such a privilege to be able to do. Be prepared for a pretty steep hike in the forest, but the steps and trails are good, so good trainers/strong footwear will be ok for you. You also need to be prepared to walk across authentic rope canopy bridges as you see in the pictures so need to have a head for heights and the movement/swinging of the bridges as you cross them, but it all felt well managed and safe. You could miss the rope bridges, and stay on the ground with the tour guide if you didn't fancy that bit of the tour, so no need to be put off by that. Its not clear in the tour instructions but you can leave your change of clothes in the tour bus ready for when you get back to the village after the river ride where you will get very wet! so its ok to take a full change of clothes and a towel so you can dry off and get comfortable for the drive back to KL. Brilliant tour, one of the best we have ever done.

    If you are short of time and want to experience little trekking in the rain forest National Park and a quick boat ride then it is OK. Locals suggest you need to spend a full day there, so a night halt is must. As far the trip concerned, you would spend 7 out of 11 hours on road and just 4 hrs in the forest / tribal village / floating restaurant. Don't expect anything fancy. Drive was comfortable but long. Trekking and Canopy walk was very good. Food was just average expected better for the price of the trip. Hospitality and knowledge / engagement level of tour operator is average. For the price charged the trip is not worth it. But as I said, if you are short of time and just need a quick experience with money not a constraint then it is for you.

    Was picked up on time and were at the Batu Caves early with very few people there. Great guide/driver who went out of his way to show us the local area. Thoroughly enjoyed the river ride, national park and native village. Had personal time with the villagers. Great people, great day!!!
