Was join an outing with 30++ Natural lovers/photographers some introduction for the Belum Rainforest
One of Malaysia's premier eco-tourism destinations. The Belum-Temengor Rainforest is more than 130million years old, encompasses 300,000 hectares of paradise that is home to a vast number of unique species of animals and plants. It remains as one of the largest, untouched forest reserves in the world.

Our destination is more on Tasik Banding (South Belum) compare to the real Belum (Royal/North Belum) but then we still went to both side by boat ....
I will get start with few pictures here and more picture will be add later @http://www.flickr.com/photos/liewwk/sets/72157622534424943/
We stay @Pulau Belia where 15min boat ride from Banding Jetty and think this is a good place where locate in the middle of the south and north Belum (if we going for 1st time)
At first here was place (5 * room) that I stay for 3 day 2 night ... wow .. I never stay at this type of "room" before and we had 5 people fit in this room :D
