  A wild bird in sight
by SLLiew

You can just stay at Taman Negara Kuala Tahan HQ dormitory, chalets or lodge and enjoy bird watching along the short trails or along the rivers.

There are a few high hides where you can stay overnight overlooking the salt licks where in the wee hours say around 3 am, animals like deer and the endemic black and white Malayan Tapir comes for their mineral intake. It is totally dark and so you have to shine your powerful torchlight to see the animals. The animals will think that it is moon light. Of course, you have to keep quiet. Most of the night, you lie in your bunk beds with moquito netting until someone spot an animal.

So bring your binoculars, torch light and batteries.
