One of the many highlights of a trip to Taman Negara is actually getting there. Buses from Kuala Lumpur take close to 3 hours to get to Kuala Tembeling jetty which is just past the small town of Jerantut. The bus trip itself is nothing inspiring - it is the next stage that will leave you in awe.
From Kuala Tembeling, there is a two to three hour trip up river in a long boat. Shortly after leaving the junction at Kuala Tembeling any motorised traffic noise stops - you are left to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery with just the hum of the boat and the cries of birds breaking the silence. If you are lucky you will see some water buffalo along the way.
Some people choose to take a bus all the way to Kuala Tahan, the village opposite the National Park, but I suggest the boat trip, at least one way, is well worth it.
There are several bus/travel companies offering transfers to Kuala Tembeling. One is listed below.
