Introduction

Belum State Park is a huge park in the Northern part of Peninsular Malaysia. It is part of the even bigger Belum-Temengor Forest Complex (BTFC). Together with Taman Negara National Park, it encompasses one of the oldest rainforests in world, dating back over 130 million years. Belum is a state park and not an official national park. This means that the local government is allowed to use the area for production forest, and it is open for future development. There are efforts to get the government to make Belum a national park, because up till now only a part of the huge forest is conserved and protected as state park.

Within the state park, you can go on wonderful nature tours (mainly boat cruises) to spot wildlife: like elephants, deer, wild boars, birds, insects, and many tropical trees and plants. There are also quite a few endangered animal species living within the state park: Malaysian tigers, Sumatran rhinoceros, Malaysian sun bears, tapirs, and the white-handed gibbon. Chances of an encounter with these great animals are, however, very slim. It is said to be the only place in Malaysia where you can spot all species of hornbills. This is also a great place to experience the rafflesia, as the area boasts three species of this enormous flower.

Within the Royal Belum State Park lies Lake Temenggor, the second-largest lake in Peninsular Malaysia (after Lake Kenyir). Lake Temenggor is, just like Lake Kenyir, a manmade lake used for water catchment. The lake has a variety of freshwater fish species, including the kelah, toman, sebarau, tenggalan and baung, which makes it the perfect destination for anglers. As it used to be a forest area, the place is full with small islands (actually peaks of mountains and hills) that can be visited. The area’s main resorts are also on these islands.

There's much to see and do around Belum State Park. As many of the attractions are located along Lake Temenggor, you will often make use of a boat to venture out to these places. The attractions and activities include: numerous jungle trails and river cruises, the Pulau Tujuh Waterfalls (or other beautiful waterfalls in the area), the Pulau Talikail Lookout Tower (amazing views), Temenggor Dam, the White Rocks (Batu Puteh), the search for the rafflesia, a visit to Kampung Chuweh (authentic Orang Asli village), and a trek to the salt licks (Sira Gajah), all with the chance to spot wildlife.
