Janda Baik Village

Janda Baik is a small village in Bentong. This peaceful village is surrounded with untouched natural tropical rain forest, making it an ideal retreat from the hectic city life. The village also has a cool highland climate and clean, fresh air.

Janda Baik has plenty of home stays and chalet operators. Some built several huts alongside the river with a small fee for the visitors to come and play with the cool, refreshing river water. The village is also popular among the bird watchers, joggers and cyclists.

Hear From Others

Left home, and headed to the first place, Janda Baik, miles away from the Berjaya Bukit Tinggi and Genting Highlands. Consider Janda Baik the foothill of everything especially for outsiders that drive through Karak Highway.


If Janda Baik was your home, you would wake up each morning surrounded by forest. In the distance, you’d hear the clear Sungai Benus rushing against cold rocks. In the distance, the Banjaran Titiwangsa spreads before your eyes, the great shadows veiled by mists. Often, you might see a flock of hornbills flying across the horizon.


I really missed Janda Baik while writing this post. I’ve always the loved nature and there is no hesitation for me to go back to Janda Baik, when I’ve a chance again.
