A canopy walk takes you high above the trees for a monkey's eye view of the canopy. Exotic birds fly overhead and you will learn from your guide about the plants and flowers and their medicianal uses. Make an exciting one hour journey by longtail boat across low level rapids and freshen up with a swim. As part of your jungle time you will take a trek along cleared paths, passing through primary and secondary jungle, The humidity can be challenging even though the walk is fairly easy, so be prepared to sweat! A swim in the Tahan River offers a welcome refreshment. A further challenge is to walk on (30 mins) a little further to reach a waterfall before returning in small dug out canoes.
