Adventure with Nature

National Parks in Malaysia provide many jungle camping sites. There are also many mountain and beach sites which are suited for camping. In picking your camp site, always take into consideration the weather conditions and the types of camping equipment you will need.The rainy season during December to February renders some camp sites along the river trails of Taman Negara in accessible. Always check with the relevant Park authorities before hand.

The lower altitudes of primary jungle like Taman Negara, Kenong Rimba Park in Pahang; Endou Rompin in Johor; Mulu and Lambir National Parks in Sarawak are humid, so your choice of tents should allow for good ventilation. Enclosed nylon tents with sewn-in groundsheets are not recommended as they tend to condense air on the inside. Cotton tents get heavy after absorbing water.


When camping on high altitude locations such as Gunung Jerai in Kedah; Gunung Korbu in Perak; Gunung Tapis and Gunung Tahan in Pahang, choose a site sheltered from the wind and avoid the higher peaks when thunderstorms occur. A self-contained tent and stakes is best for mountain camping.Basic set up is needed when camping on the beaches of the marine parks in the country which includes Pulau Payar in Kedah; Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan; Pulau Redang, Terengganu; Pulau Tioman and Cherating in Pahang and Tunku Abdul Rahman Park in Sabah. A hammock or sleeping bag will do very well.Remember to check on restrictions which may apply due to ecological or other reasons.Please, contact the Park authorities.
