What to Expect?

Also known as the Teluk Bahang Recreational Park, Taman Rimba is a vast, 32ha forest park that serves as a good introduction to the Malaysian rainforest.

The park is well-equipped with picnic and camping areas, a playground, a forestry museum and a substantial network of hiking trails. Explore the trails and take in the wide variety of flora and fauna in their natural habitat. The icing on the cake is surely the waterfall where one can take a dip to cool off while enjoying the surrounding greenery.

There are nature trails around the park, as well as treks that leads deeper through the jungle and into Penang Hill, making it an ideal place for hiking and jungle trekking. Anybody intending to climb these trails are reminded that a certain degree of physical fitness and stamina is expected. One should explore according to one's pace and not to overexert.

    The place quite nice for family having picnic while having fun with the waterfall
    The waterfall sometimes look kinda dirty when its raining...but the colour of the water kinda look green when we take pictures..Suitable fr kids too cz the water height is not too deep...
    But overall its a nice place...Fr those who bring their children need to watch out cz the rock might be slippery..

    Clean & clear water, clean bathroom, there's lots of parking space if you come early. We arrived at 8AM and greeted this pakcik whether this place has open or closed because no one else there ? Pay RM1 to change clothes and another 30sen if you use the loo. Tried swimmed but the water was too cold and auto get simpul biawak lah hahaha. Friendly staff, I think they clean the place everyday because I can barely found rubbish.
