Taman Negara 2009

14 – 17 Aug 09

This 3 days 2 nights trip was a new experience and completed with pride. Since it was a revisited trip, I prefer to make a special arrangement with the travel agent. We took 2 days 1 night at Taman Negara vicinity. Another night will be spent at Jerantut town for other additional arrangement.

Frankly say, it wasn’t a pleasant trip due to the messy arrangement from this tour agency.The whole story started from the moment I made booking. From prices to transport arrangement, I’d my own issue with it because it’s not consistent and keep changing.

  • Towel – sweat like crazy during the hike before reach 1st peak
  • Extra shirt – to get change at your car when you’re about to go back

  • Torchlight – required if you planned to hike and reach before 7am.
  • Shoes – slippery surface during hiking up and down. Need a pair of shoes that having a good grip.
