Long Trip: Birding in Taman Negara, Kuala Tahan

One of the world's oldest rainforest, Taman Negara is home to some 350 species of birds including Hornbills, Trogons, Pittas, Barbets, the Crested Fireback and the Great Argus.
The trip will entail daily trekking through jungle trails that may sometimes be strenuous but at a manageable birder's pace. This trip is not suitable for digiscoping. There will be a boat ride to get to Yong and Blau hides.
