Kenong Rimba Park Featured

Kenong Rimba Park is located at the fringe of Taman Negara on its eastern and northern boundaries. This green precinct covers a sprawling 128 square kilometres of pahang's tropical rainforest. Kenong Rimba Park is home to pockets of limestone caves, which have become the destination of splunking enthusiasts. The crystal clear waters that flow through the park and high cascading waterfalls are exotic backdrops to a large array of flora and fauna.

 

Fascinating Flora & Fauna

Kenong Rimba Park is dominated by lowland forests and riverine vegetation. Epiphytic vegetation such as ferns & wild orchids are abundant here, also lofty tualang tree (kompassia excelsa). Also in abundance is the gigantic ficus tree or pokok ara, which is popularly featured in many local folklore, proverbs and rhymes. A profusion of pink and white water lilies floating on scattered water bodies around the park adds to the enchantment. 

 

Wildlife

Elephants, tapirs, leopards and deers are found in small numbers. Smaller mammals such as porcupines, mousedeers, flying foxes, and river otters are easier to notice along the jungle trails. However, like in any other parts of the Tropical Rain Forest, these animals are easier heard than sighted, all due to the very dense vegetations.
