Jungle Trekking with Pak Lan

We can arrange Jungle Trips with the enthusiastic and knowledgeable Pak Lan. Pak Lan is a local Islander who has a passion for the jungle on Tioman like no other. He is exellent at spotting the most cryptic and fascinating critters for you, and will give you ample time to take your photos.

You can book your jungle trip at reception

Duration and difficulty

The trips can be tailored to suit anybody, from families with young children to the more adventurous who would like to stretch their legs a little. After the jungle trip Pak Lan will bring you to a waterfall in the jungle for a nice cool swim. An average trip will usually last half a day or more, with walking distance anything from 1km-4km.

Price

The Jungle trek is for all ages and costs RM120 per pax per adult and RM60 per child. Kids under 3 go free.

What you can see

You can expect to see some very large trees, Raffelsia flower, wild orchids and other fascinating flora beneath the ancient jungle canopy of this exquisite virgin rainforest. On the fauna side, you can see Giant Squirrel, Long Tail Macaques, Giant monitor lizards, Tree lizards, snakes and if you are lucky the elusive Mouse Deer.

What to bring

Surprisingly there are very few mosquitos on the upper slopes and planes of the jungle where you will do your trek, so no need to bring the mosquito spray, Pak Lan tends to stick to areas that are not muddy or difficult to walk on, but a good pair of walking shoes or trekking sandals will come in handy.
