TAMAN NEGERI ROMPIN

The State Park

Taman Negeri Rompin is among the oldest tropical rainforest in the world. It is part of Endau-Rompin forest reserve sharing with its neighbour, Johor state.  The uniqueness of Taman Negeri Rompin lies from its geology, myth, flora and fauna. The State Park’s rainforest is perhaps best characterised by its biologically rich lowland mixed dipterocarp formations, which generally predominate below 300m and heath forest. It also consists of edaphic hill forest formations, in particular the spectacular fan palm forest. The fan palms are Livistona endauensis, a species endemic to this forest reserve. The geological history of the park dates back at least 248 million years to the Permian-Carboniferous age which the rock types include low grade metamorphics, volcanics, granite and sedimentary sequence

Located at the most southern-tip of Pahang state and within Rompin, it is a great destination for the nature outdoor activity lovers. Previously known as Taman Negeri Endau Rompin, the state park has changed its name and the facilities now have been upgraded with activity and program that focusing on nature education and conservation. Visitors are able to visit new interactive and nature learning centre which is Rainforest Discovery Centre (RDC), Suspension Bridge, Watch Tower and Seri Mahkota Waterfall. Few selections of guided activities are also available which are jungle trekking, birdwatching and kayaking. The experienced guide will be your storyteller, sharing and showing the interesting flora and fauna surround you! Visitors are required to pay for admission fees as fixed by Pahang State Forestry Department in accordance with the schedule below. More details about activity can be found as follow:
