It can be cheaper, if you're a backpacker or so. There's
also a youth hostal between the chalets in the resort.
Right opposite the resort, just across
the river, is a little place called "Kuala Tahan". In this
little town, which is just outside the National Park "Taman Negara",

New Strait Times. These advertisement are very profitable. Please contact the
Travel Agents and let you inform and ask them about the price of the package
deal. These packages seem fair to me.

NKS Hotel &
Travel sdn bhd Taman Negara Tour Specialist
John Orr (Australia) booked
a trip with the NKS to Taman Negara in November (rainy season). This
is, what he mailed about his trip with the NKS Taman Negara Tour
I was able to contact NKS and arranged a reasonable trip back in
mid-November 2002. Had rain once on the way up but had my poncho
raingear in the outer pocket of my pack so got covered quick enough to
keep myself & pack dry. I stayed across the river from the park at
the Ekoton Chalet (with a/c but no hot water because of a water
pressure problem). The food/drink across from the park was good very
price. I got up early and took a boat taxi across the river around
07:45. Walked into the park restaurant and bought a glass of
sweet ice tea in a tall class for RM7.00 - outrageous price!
Across the river
from the park you can get coffee/tea and banana pancake and
scramble/fried/boiled egg and mixed fruit and "squesh oren"
RM8.00 for everything on the NKS floating restaurant!!!
Anyway, I walked alone down the trail to the canopy walkway and
arrived around 08:45 to find a sign saying the walkway opens at 10:30
ha ha! Another passenger on the same boat as I walked up around 09:00
talked until the attendants opened the place up.
