Kenong Rimba Park

Kenong Rimba Park, ("Rimba" is "jungle" or "forest" in Malay) fringes Taman Negara at its eastern and northern boundaries, and covers an area of about 128 square kilometers in the delightful state of Pahang.

The park is home to many magnificent limestone caves. The sense of tranquility and quiet solitude are broken only by the chirping of birds and cascading waterfalls. The most striking is the Gua Batu Tinggi, which resembles a dug-out boat. The Kenong River passes though this cave.

Local folklore has it that the cave was formed when a boat carrying the king’s messenger from Pekan was turned into stone. This cave is located approximately 122 to 152 metres above sea level and is here to a variety of plant life that includes orchids, fig trees and epiphytes.

Each limestone cave is located about half an hour's trek from each other.
