Jungle time - Taman Negara

Just finished a jungle trek at night in the rainforest of Malaysia. My fear of spiders is well known so was this a retarded idea? Not really.

The walk itself some would find tame, I found it a nice way to do a jungle trek at night. Paths are clear even with metal at some parts. This is no way stops what you see. In one hour we saw a huge scorpion, two huntsman spiders, a green snake and several stick insects. Bar the spiders it was really nice experience. At the lookout we even saw deer. We are a three hour boat ride into the jungle but there is a nice village by the river set up for the jungle.

I now have to debate whether to risk running the gauntlet to clean my teeth as there is a giant flying cockroach type thing in the corridor!

We also did some fun rapids and met the indigenous people of taman negara.
