The climb up to Gunung Tahan can be an exciting and challenging feat, not a picknick. Recommended time for the climb and return trip is around nine days. Requires considerable preparations and a jungle guide must be taken on the climb.

This is no large expedition, but the trip does involve a minimum of 60km Jungle treking. There are two roots to the top, one 3 day one starting from merapoh covering aprox 60km for the return trip, and a seven day trip from the other side of the mountain. The mountain is situated in the middle of Taman Negara, Malaysia's enormous rainforest national poark, and the view from the top os extremely good.
