the wild animals are a bit rare to see because of the weather. the only attraction is rafflesa but you are paying a lot of money to see them on a tour

It is a biodiversity hub and an important conservation site for iconic species such as tigers, elephants, hornbills and rafflesia. Visitor fees and other revenue help to fund conservation efforts and increases support for further protection of the state park. Tourism activities include wildlife watching, bird watching, visiting salt licks, visiting indigenous settlements, visiting rafflesia sites, jungle trekking, bamboo rafting, recreational fishing, kayaking and camping.

I stopped by this lake for one night. I was heading to Penang from Kota bharu and it was perfect day-off from heat and walking.

It was very nice, and 5degree cooler than Kota Bharu. I enjoyed taking a nap on hammock. Very beautiful and peaceful place. I was exhausted but I recovered well after I visited here.

To getting there was easy.
I took bus from Kota Bharu that heading to Sungai Petani and asked the driver to drop me off at Royal Belum where public jetty.
But getting out was not easy. I was very lucky that lovely couple who were leaving same day, they dropped me at Grik. But bus going to Penang was full for that day, I had to go to Baling but bus was 2 hours away, so I took taxi. I was able to take bus from there to Butterworth.

I went there for our office retreat plus meeting. It was not my first time there however it was my first experience staying overnight on a Casuarina owned houseboat. The experience is totally different from just going there and exploring the jungle during day time to see the rafflesia flower blooming and visiting it refreshing and clear waterfall. To me experiencing the night time in Belum well I truly have no one word to describe it. There is no telephone reception so it was really quite and peaceful with only the sound of water and animals in the jungle and if you are lucky enough you get to see wildlife in its natural habitat. It really is a good getaway to leave the bustle of modern environment and breath in fresh untainted air as well as for us obviously to get work done without any interruption.

Hi, I went to this place with a group of 30 pax including a baby boy aged 1 yr 10 months.

Most of us are from Kuala Lumpur and it took about 5 hours drive to Royal Belum.

If you are lucky :) you may bump into elephant(s) in Grik area. But we were not lucky enough.

The road to reach the Banding Jetty is steep so please drive carefully.

A bit info about this amazing forest, Belum - Temenggor is believed to have been in existence for over 130 million years! Making it one of the oldest rainforest in the world and even older than Amazon and Congo.

Those who love nature would fall in love with this place 😍 Ohh before that, it requires a permit to enter Royal Belum.

We stayed in the boat house throughout our stays there in the middle of the lake. We have done many activities such as swimming in the lake, fishing, jungle trekking where you can many species of flora and fauna, waterfalls and etc.

We also visited the aboriginal people (orang asli) there.

Here enjoy the photos!

We had a marvellous time with the Casuarina @ Meru team on the Casuarina 1 Boathouse. The team was led by Faizal & Chef Kannan. Chef fed us well & Faizal & his team made sure that we were comfortable throughout the journey. The trekking was great! The 2 waterfalls were fabulous . There was no communication available & we were totally cutoff fr the outside world which was great! The kids had a fabulous time & it was also a time of bonding with their cousins- not glued to their phones as usual. All in all, it was a great trip & I would recommend it very much. Just be sure to make reservations direct with the hotel- Hotel Casuarina @ Meru. If you go through agent, the matk up is quite substantial.You might just get lucky & get Faizal & his team!

It is the best place you can go if you looking for a place to escape from concrete Jungle. A Orang Asli Village visitation & refflessia flower hunting package is provided by the hotel around this human made Lake/Dam.

Access is only by boat across the man-made Banding Lake about an hour to reach the Sungai Enam Base Camp. Visitors are allowed overnight here. The camp uses a sustainable forest concept in its entire design of lodging and functions. Entry permits must be arranged at least a week in advance.
Lodgings of tiny chalets were built from bamboo, wood and rattan. Do not expect comfort if you are not an ecotourist. However, separate hot showers are provided by a simple system which channels water from nearby rivers. Guided trekking tours can be organised via several levels of trails, to present yourself in the dense forest rich in flora and fauna, and beautiful waterfalls. A chance to witness the abundant Rafflesia flower if you visit during its blooming season. If you are lucky you might be able to sight hornbills, deers, bears, snakes and even elephants. If not, you may encounter their tracks and salt licks in your paths. There are also separate tours to nearby indigenous villages, subject to their permission.
Enjoy the cool forest fresh air while you're deep in the forest, keep close to your guide so you won't get lost.
Take pictures only and leave only your footsteps.

Belum is a national park that is located about 2 hours drive from Ipoh. It is less commercialized in relative to others in the country. The whole rain forest is scattered with man-made islands resulted from the construction of the Temenggor hydroelectric dam decades ago. The lake is deep-emerald-coloured and the dept could reach hundreds of feet. Boat can be hired for private cruise. Some lodgings and hotels in the area provide such service too. If you are lucky, you may see some tiger swimming from an island to another. Here is also the home to other exotic animals such as tapir, rhinoceros, elephant etc although sighting is rare

It was a good day off from the digital for my friends and i. We enjoyed trekking into the old jungle, spotting rafflesia, got wet in the waterfall and speed-boating. We were supposed to visit some native village but somehow our boat broke down on the way but it did not kill our mood. We enjoyed straying in the middle of nowhere and a kind boathouse picked us up.

I would strongly recommend this for digital detox and natural lover. No, we did not spot any big wild animals.
