Walk through Taman Negara National Park

If you are a fan of hikes, then you are in luck! Being a country with a strong status as a vital biodiversity landmass, the Malaysian government has placed an interest in developing national parks for anyone to enjoy. As one of the largest national parks in the Malaysian region, it is also recognized for containing the longest rope walkway in the world. For those adventurous of heart, there are hikes that may stretch up to a 100km while beginners may select shorter routes to satisfy their curiosity. A truly remarkable ecosystem, tribes such as the Orang Asli have called it their home for generations. If you are hoping to stay at an Ipoh hotel such as the new Travelodge Ipoh in Negeri Perak, we then recommend you get some help from the hotel to arrange the transport to visit this national park.

Orangutans at the Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre

One of the last common ancestors of humans around, Orangutans are under threat in Malaysia due to deforestation, logging and poaching.

A brilliant effort that even takes in orphaned orangutan's, this centre is open for tours during feeding hours for an up close view of the lives of our closest genetic neighbours.
