Tropical Rainforest Videos from Malaysia Give You a Taste of Jungle Life


A few rainforest videos to get you in the mood for a jungle adventure.

Sometimes it takes a little push of a button to get you on nature's path, where jungle waterfalls and rainforest animals await you.

These jungle videos will provide you with some family travel ideas and let you see that nature tourism in Malaysia is awesome.

It may be difficult to find endangered species on the prowl, but the rainforest habitat has plenty of mammals, like civets and flying lemurs, and spectacular rainforest insects to show-off too.

Hopefully these rainforest videos will entice you to explore Malaysia's great nature getaways to find some wild moments of your own.

Tropical Rainforest Animals

The Fascinating Flying Lemur

Flying lemurs are just cool. Also called colugos, they don't actually fly but hang glide with a skin membrane attached to all its limbs. Only found in Southeast Asia, find these night time flyers clinging to large tree trunks. See this species at Perhentian Island, Tioman Island, Maxwell Hill and other forest habitats.

A Curious Common Palm Civet

Civets are civets not cats. They are mostly active at night and can be found in trees and on the ground. Most civets have a pointed muzzle and long tail. Find these quiet creatures in forests and plantations, including Maxwell Hill and Cameron Highlands.

Spectacular Rajah Brooke's Birdwing

This is one beautiful butterfly despite the video quality. Named after James Brooke, the Rajah of Sarawak around the 1850s, by Alfred R. Wallace, Charles Darwin's colleague, it is now considered a world class insect. Go see for yourself at Hutan Lipur Lentang and Ulu Geroh.

Tropical Rainforest Destinations

Catch A Calm Moment At Matang Mangroves

The Matang mangrove forest is a good place for anyone to get a natural education. An easy side trip from Taiping, take the time to explore this coastal habitat that supports waterbirds, fisheries and charcoal production.

Soak Up Chamang Waterfall

Nestled amid gorgeous rainforest habitat, the Chamang tropical waterfall is a jungle oasis just off the Karak Highway.When you want to escape the city or just find a travel idea for kids, then head over to Bentong for a day trip.

Cool Off At Fraser's Hill Highlands

A colonial relic, Frasers Hill is full of history and natural splendor swathed in blankets of cloud forests. Nestled in the lower mountains of the Main Range, this highland destination is probably the most beloved of Malaysia's hill stations.

View From Klang Gates Quartz Ridge

For a special hiking experience head to Klang Gates Quartz Ridge. Only 200 metres wide and made mostly of quartz, the ridgetop stretches over 22 kms. It's a tough climb but the views are spectacular. Go in the early morning to avoid the sun and find a picnic spot.
