Generally, when you think about forests and beaches, you would hardly think of staying overnight in such places. However beautiful they are, some places just seem to be not worth the overnight stay. Yet do you know that when you camp out at these natural landscapes, you’ll be rewarded with picturesque night scenery and the ever-valuable silence (with occasional sounds of wildlife and nature)? Scroll down for the best camping spots you can go to in Malaysia now!
Lubuk Mecu Waterfall & Lata Medang Waterfall
Firstly, if you are someone who loves waterfalls, check out this cool place at Selangor! For your information, you can hike 6km from Kampung Pertak to Lubuk Mecu Waterfall. Once there, have a swim by the waterfall and make a camping site.
Afterwards, hike to Lata Merdang Waterfall the very next day. These two beautiful waterfalls are just a short 10 to 15 minutes walk between each other.
Address: 55, 44000, Selangor.
Endau-Rompin National Park
Coming up next is our amazing National Park. Head to Endau-Rompin National Park in Johor for the ancient old rainforests. Whilst you are here, explore the surroundings for the hiking trails and waterfalls.
Moreover, you can also drop by the native Orang Asli village, travel down the rivers on rubber tubes, and go on a night safari.
Address: Taman Negara, Johor.
Kem Sg Pauh
On the other hand, if you prefer a cooler spot to camp (not that it matters at night), this is the perfect camping spot just for you! The mountainous terrain and cool weather will certainly create your best ever camping experience in Malaysia.
What’s more, with the clean environment and friendly staffs, you can explore the hiking trails with a peace of mind.
Address: Tanah Rata, 39000 Tanah Rata, Pahang.
RainForest Camping Perhentian Island
Last but not least, an island camping trip actually sounds nice. After all, waking up next to a sandy beach and clear turquoise sea will no doubt make your overnight stay memorable.
Head to this camping site at Perhentian for the best of both worlds. You get to explore the seas by snorkelling and swimming and at the same time, hiking is also available at the site.
Address: RainForest Beach, Perhentian Kecil, Terengganu, 22300 Besut, Terengganu.
