Belum-Temengor Rainforest is
where the wonders of nature come alive. Over 130 million years of age
and encompassing 300,000 hectares, this tropical paradise is home to a
vast number of species of animals and plants, many of which cannot be
found anywhere else in the world. In fact, scientific studies indicate
that this pristine forest, which remains one of the largest untouched
forest reserves in Peninsular Malaysia, holds enormous potential for the
discovery of more biological treasures.
Situated in the state of Perak, at
the border of Peninsular Malaysia and Thailand, the stunning landscape
of Belum-Temengor Rainforest houses over 3,000 species of flowering
plants, including three species of the largest flower in the world - the
Rafflesia. It is also the natural habitat of 64 species of ferns, 62
species of mosses, and has a lake that is home to 23 species of
freshwater fish and 5 species of turtles. The entire forest complex is
approximately four times the size of Singapore, which makes it the ideal
place for large animals such as tigers, elephants and rhinoceroses to
roam and breed, undisturbed by man.
Nature at its purest - The
unspoiled magic of Belum, which literally means ‘land before time’,
makes it the perfect habitat for 14 of the world’s most threatened
mammals, including the Malaysian Tiger, Sumatran Rhinoceros, the
White-handed Gibbon, Asiatic Elephant, and Malayan Tapir. It also makes
this forest an ideal destination for ecotourism activities, such as
wildlife watching, education and research initiatives, which support the
conservation efforts of the area.
