Taman Negara is the most extensive protected area of pristine, lowland, evergreen rainforest in Malaysia. The stated purpose of Taman Negara is “to utilise the land within the park in perpetuity, for the propagation, protection and preservation of indigeneous flora and fauna”.
Nestled in the state of Pahang, it’s about 300km from Kuala Lumpur and takes around 3.5 hours to travel by road. Dating back over 130 million years, Taman Negara is one of world’s oldest tropical rainforest. During the Ice Ages, much of the Earth was covered by immense glaciers that kept the global climate cool. Consequently, many of the planet’s tropical rainforests had to wait until the glaciers receded before they could evolve. Taman Negara rainforest, however, was blessed with a location far enough away from the ice that it developed 130 million years ago – far earlier than those of Africa and Latin America. The forest itself is one of the most ancient on the planet, far older than the equatorial forests of the Amazon or the Congo. It has for tens of thousands of years been the home of nomadic forest people, and ancient civilizations have flourished as well as disappeared in its vastness.
