-Would you ever do a jungle tour at night?-
What would you answer to this - pretty crazy- question?
If the answer is a big fat yes, you are reading the right article!
If you are traveling around Malaysia, just get yourself to Taman Negara National Park, in the heart of the country.
It is a beautiful and uncontaminated rain forest, 130 million years old, of a breathtaking beauty.
NIGHT JUNGLE TOUR, HOW COME?
It might sounds insane, but yes, you can join this incredible night tour inside the jungle, led by an expert local guide. They will explain to you everything about the jungle life and its wild creatures.
The tour normally starts around 10 pm and it takes 1 hour approximately.
You can book it at your hostel or via this web site:
WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO SEE?
The tour is made to show people some of the wild animals and plants! Don’t worry, you won’t encounter any tiger or bear, but definitely a large variety of reptiles and insects.
You will be seeing poisonous snakes and scorpions, giant ants, spiders, bats… I know it’s a bit creepy, but it is an opportunity that won’t happen a lot in life!
IT IS DANGEROUS?
Obviously it is not a happy-go-lucky stroll, since it’s night and you need to be a bit careful. You will use a torch to get around, since inside the forest is completely dark, and you will walk along a wooden safe path.
Just don’t make too much noise and follow what your guide says.
Nothing bad will happen, unless you touch one of these deadly-poisonous creatures! :)
Even though it can be a bit scary, I can guarantee that a jungle night tour it’s an amazing wild adventure!
