Endau Rompin National Park, Johor, Malaysia

Endau Rompin, located north of Johor and south of Pahang, is the second National Park proclaimed by the Government of Malaysia. It covers an area of approximately 50,000 hectares of rich flora and fauna, encompassing the watershed of the rivers Endau and Rompin, from which it derived its name.

This beautiful park is located 56km from pahang and visitor would have to traverse through rubber and palm oil plantation, as well as dense jungle along dirt tracks to the base camp. Peta is also the most remote Orang Asli (aboriginal) settlement in Johor

Please refer to this link on how to get there.

1. the facilities in the park was very well maintained, the facilities were recently upgraded and in my humble opinion, it is far better than many recreational areas created by many of the State Government.

2. the jungle treks are clean and rubbish free unlike the well trodden treks like kk or gunung tahan

3. the rivers are pristine and crystal clear as evidenced below

4. abundance kelah (malaysia mahseer) and sebarau at kuala marong

6. definitely an ideal get away from the city’s hustle and bustle

7. there is however a major set back with the park management; our two nights three days stay was without an electricity as promised by the park management. The generator set failed to live up to its expectations both nights.

8. this incident must be seriously look into by the park management; the incident is a major draw back for families and friends that are looking forward for a perfect hideaway.

9. beautiful upeh guling waterfalls
