The forest reserve is rich in wildlife, one of the richect in Malaysia with over 100 species of mammals and over 50 reptilian species.This wild, expanse of rainforest jungle saddling the two catchment areas creates a corridor for wild animals to cross into the Thailand jungles.
One of the most popular nature experiences. An adventure through the jungles of Ulu Muda. Overnight camps, treks, and wildlife spotting are the essential ingredients. This is one of the best ways to soak in the atmosphere of the Malaysian rainforest. For those short of time, spend a day out on the boat and treks around the wildlife salt-licks.
A visit here is only for the rugged intrepid adventurer. Hire an experienced guide and a permit is required from the Kedah State Forestry Department to go in. The forestry deparment can help arrange boats and an authorised guide for you. Entry into the area requires much planning – mental alertness and physical form is important.
