Royal Belum Rainforest is truly one of the few final frontiers of Peninsular Malaysia. This virtually untouched forest reserve is about 290,000ha of jungle stretching along the Thai-Malaysian border. It is a rich national heritage full of many unique species of fauna and flora. The Belum and Temenggor Reserve Parks have been left very much intact as a permanent nature reserve set aside for research. This remote area of Perak was closed to the public for a very long time due to the conflict between Malaysian security forces and communist bandits.

This Garden of Eden is named after the sound made by the large grasshoppers that live here, beluuuum, beluuuuuuum! Belum may hold many scientific secrets with its abundance of medicinal herbs and plants that have been collected and used by the native Orang Asli people for generations. Many remedies are found here and ‘love potions’ are also possible! Add a dash of ‘cenuai’ to complete the potion. Secondary forests are home to huge and rare  rainforest hardwood trees with some believed to be as old as 500-600 years. The forests are home to local tree species known as Meranti, Cengal, Keruing and Merbau. Visitors can enjoy many streams and waterfalls with cool crystal-clear waters surrounded  by ancient forests.

Belum literally means ‘land before time’ and is home to 14 of the world’s most endangered mammals, including the Malaysian tiger, Sumatran rhinoceros, white-handed gibbon, Asiatic elephant, and Malayan tapir.
