The forest at Endau-Rompin National Park dates back over 248 million years, to the Permian Triassic period – this is a pristine, waterfall-laden jungle teeming with animals, waterfalls and knockout views. Straddling the Johor–Pahang border, the 870-sq-km park is the second-largest on the peninsula after the much more developed and accessible Taman Negara. Not nearly as many visitors venture to Endau-Rompin, so there is far less hiking traffic but, as there are few trails exploration is limited. What you can see, however, is really quite spectacular.
There are two main entryways to the park, the principal one at Kampung Peta, accessed from Kahang, and a less-developed one at Selai, about a 40-minute drive from Bekok. No trails link the two areas so you have to choose to base yourself at one or the other. A third, lesser-used entry is at Kuala Kinchin in Pahang province, 26km from Kuala Rompin.
