Since ancient times, adventurers and

explorers have come to Malaysian shores,

attracted by its diverse natural wealth and

embraced by its gentle people.

Today, Malaysia is known around the world as a

destination for a host of nature-based activities

and ecotourism. From challenging rock climbing

or cross-jungle trekking at different mountain

zones to wild rafting in frothing rivers, or diving in

calm seas to parasailing in the multihued skies – it’s

all here.

More than half of Malaysia’s 329,758 sq km surface

is covered by tropical rainforests that host a

bewildering array of exotic and protected plants

and animals. There are treasures such as rare species

of flora and fauna found only at Mount Kinabalu

or wondrous

geological formations such as Mulu

Adventure and

Nature Lovers’ Paradise

Caves. Even Taman Negara, the world’s oldest

rainforest, estimated at 130 million years old can

be found here.
