Canopy Walk

The suspension bridge canopy walk in the Taman Negara was built in 1992, initially used by researchers to study tree canopy ecosystem organisms that affect tree growth. During the canopy walk, besides enjoying the rainforest view from the top, tourists can access the canopy of the tree ecosystem.
In addition to regular maintenance work, the suspension bridge will also undergo upgrade work every five years. At one time, the Canopy walk in Taman Negara once reached 550 meters in length and held the record as the longest canopy walk in the world. However, for the safety of visitors, the first phase along the 220 -meter suspension bridge had to be closed. Currently, visitors are only allowed to use the second phase of the 330 -meter suspension bridge. The new 800 -meter suspension bridge is still under construction.

Taman Negara Day Trip FAQ

What is the Best Time to make a Taman Negara Day Trip?

Tourists can visit Taman Negara throughout the year. But there are activities like canopy walks that we cannot do when it rains. So March to October is the best option for tourists to take a day trip to Pahang National Park.

Can you arrange a transfer to Cameron Highlands after the tour?

Yes, we can arrange a transfer to Cameron Highlands after tourists complete all the activities in Taman Negara. It is a good plan for tourists planning to make the Cameron Highlands day trip the next day. Instead of returning to Kuala Lumpur after visiting Taman Negara Pahang, tourists can stay overnight in Cameron Highlands and start the tour a bit late on the next day.
