Endau Rompin National Park

Endau Rompin National Park straddles between Johor and Pahang, encompassing the watershed rivers in Endau, Johor and Rompin, Pahang, and comprising some 488 square kilometres of forest.

Lush and relatively untouched, it is one of the few remaining lowland tropical rainforest in the country and the last refuge of the Sumatran rhinoceros.

It covers an area of approximately 80,000 hectares of rich and exotic flora and fauna and is home to a vast species of birds, mammals, frogs, insects and exotic varieties of orchids, herbs, medicinal plants and trees.

Jungle trekking is a great way to catch sightings of leaf monkeys, long-tail macaques, white-handed gibbons, elephants, deer, tapirs and the occasional tiger and leopard. For adventure seekers, there are exhilarating rapids and fairly substantial waterfalls to discover.

To protect the pristine environment, only limited areas of the park are open for ecotourism. Entry to the park requires a special permit from the Johor National Park Corporation.
