What to Expect?

Endau Rompin, straddling the Johor/Pahang border, is a beautiful national park in the southeastern part of Peninsular Malaysia. Together with Taman Negara and Royal Belum State Park it contains some of the oldest rainforests in the world.

The park is home to a vast species of birds, mammals, frogs, insects and exotic varieties of orchids, herbs, medicinal plants and trees. It seems that every time a scientific expedition returns from Endau Rompin, they discover a new species!









What to see at the park

Just like Taman Negara there are many wildlife species that live in the park, chances on spotting them are slim as they have ample space to roam around within the park boundaries. The national park is known for having the largest remaining population of the highly endangered Sumatran rhinoceros.





Other animals that live in the national park are the white-handed gibbon, Malaysian tiger, Asian elephant, wild boar, tapir, slow loris, deer, long-tail macaques and leopards. Among the many bird species that live in the park are the hornbills and kingfishers.






As most of the animals know how to evade visitors it is more common to spot insects, spiders and the occasional snake.

The forest is also famous for its abundance of waterfalls and unique rock formation.











Attractions

There are many activities and attractions at Endau-Rompin National Park to keep you busy for at least 3 or 4 days. Among the most popular attractions are; jungle trails, a visit to the Orang Asli (Jakun tribe) village, rubber tube rafting, night safari (walk or by 4x4), numerous fantastic waterfalls, a few beautiful lakes and river cruises.









Getting There

The national park has three main entry points, two located within the state of Johor and one within the state of Pahang. The two entry points in Johor are mostly used by visitors. At the eastern side of the park you have the Peta entrance, nearby Mersing so good to combine with a visit to Tioman Island of one of the surrounding tropical islands.

The forest is also a favorite spot for the advanturous jungle 4wd fanatics to wander into.







Many travel agencies offer package tours to Endau-Rompin; this often includes transport, accommodation, meals and guided jungle trails. Entry to the park requires a special permit (RM10) from the Johor National Park Corporation.

    Good place to enjoy nature. Accomodations are provided. Large camping site for those who want to feel the camping experience. Clean toilet. There is a comfortable prayer room for the muslims. There are lots of activities can be done, just refer to the Ranger Office for help and info.

    You will need a 4x4 to reach the area, because of the road condition. Or you can cycle from the nearest village that is around 7km. But park your car at your own risk.

    No cafe available in the camping site. But there is a grocery store located around 7 km at the nearest village. But, please keep the park clean from food waste and garbage.
