Canopy Walk

Exploring the National Park – Taman Negara

To explore the National Park…especially the jungle, I had to cross the river. And since there are no bridges one is totally dependent on the locals for transportation. For about 50 Cents they offer you a ride to cross the river on their oldschool boats..

When you are on the other side…the jungle starts already..

There is some kind of a board walk to the Canopy Walk.

Walk across the longest Malaysian suspension bridge in the world, at 530 m. Walk across the canopy 25 m-40 m high, and view the rich and diverse flora and fauna at the summit of the forest.

Never heard of a Tapir before…and never seen such a huge ass frog..

A tapir is a large herbivorous mammal, similar in shape to a pig, with a short, prehensile snout. Tapirs inhabit jungle and forest regions of South America, Central America, and Southeast Asia. The five extant species of tapirs are the Brazilian tapir, the Malayan tapir, the Baird’s tapir, the kabomani tapir, and the mountain tapir. The four species that have been evaluated (the Brazilian, Malayan, Baird’s and mountain tapir) have all been classified as endangered or vulnerable. Their closest relatives are the other odd-toed ungulates, including horses and rhinoceroses.

so glad to be back at home…it started raining a couple of minutes later and did not stop until the next morning..
