Taman Negara is a must visit when travelling to Malaysia! It’s one of the world’s oldest rainforests and one of the most well-known hikes is the Canopy Highwalk. The rain forest is one of the best places of Malaysia for a jungle experience, together with the jungles in Borneo.
I felt like being part of the jungle and it is a wonderful moving experience to feel the own roots connected to nature. All is one and everything is connected, I just love this feeling!
