Perhentian Besar Island is a more laid back than Perhentian Kecil Island, and is still covered with a lush and relatively untouched virgin rainforest.
This jungle trail starts from behind Perhentian Island Resort leading towards a waterfall at Teluk Dalam on the other side of the island.
Matted with dense vegetation, the jungle is home to nature's most complex and diverse ecosystems. Plant species such as climbing vines and palms can be seen in a dazzling forms and functions, draped together to form a vibrant and interconnected habitat.
The trip to the jungle requires the full use of one’s sense to discover all the creatures of the forest. Look out for wildlife such as several rare fruit bat species, a number of forest birds (such as Nicobar pigeon, sunbirds, shamas and warblers), the dusky langur monkey, and the flying lemur.
It is an exhilarating experience hiking through the rainforest, coming in contact with nature at its most natural. Please contact our Front Office for more information.
