The enchanted rainforest

Endau-Rompin Peta Johor National Park




Established in 1993, the 48,905-ha Endau-Rompin (Johor) National Park is the largest protected area in the southern half of Peninsular Malaysia. This ancient rainforest realm in north-eastern Johor is a treasure trove of biodiversity, and a critical habitat so important for the survival of the country’s globally-threatened megafauna, including the Malayan Tiger, Malayan Tapir and Asian Elephant.

There are two official entry points to the park: the Peta entrance located along the eastern boundary in the district of Mersing, and the Selai entrance at the southwestern boundary in the district of Segamat.

The Peta entrance provides a gateway to the rugged wilderness of the upper Endau valley, where pristine rivers and raging waterfalls are the star attractions. A visit to Peta is also a cultural experience, as the Endau valley lies within the customary lands of the indigenous people of Kampung Peta, whose lives are intertwined with the forest in profound and inexplicable ways. Through the eyes and hearts of the Jakun, this timeless land is filled with oral history; populated by unseen beings; and alive with the hidden messages of benevolent animals.

Top 5 Peta highlights:

  • Upeh Guling – Soak up the scenery at one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the country.
  • Buaya Sangkut – Endure the challenging trek to the foot of this majestic falls.
  • Janing Barat – Feel the other-worldly vibes of the fan palm forest.
  • Tasik Biru – Swim with the fishes in the translucent waters of the blue lake.
  • Kampung Peta – Experience authentic Orang Hulu culture and hospitality.

By car

The Peta entrance is accessed via the town of Kahang, where the Johor Parks site office is located. From the North-South Expressway, exit at Ayer Hitam if you are coming from the north, or Simpang Renggam if you are coming from the south. Follow the road signs to Kluang and onwards to Kahang.

You may stop by the Johor Parks office in Kahang for a break and to stock up on last-minute supplies at the nearby shops if needed. The turnoff from the main road towards the park is located about 7 km from Kahang, along the trunk road to Mersing. From the turn off, it is a further 53 km to Kampung Peta through oil palm plantations and the Labis Timur Forest Reserve. If you do not have a 4WD, you can arrange to leave your vehicle at the Johor Parks office in Kahang and continue the rest of the way with a local transport provider.

By public transport

Take a train or express bus to Kluang. Then hop on a local bus or taxi to Kahang. Prior arrangements can be made with Johor Parks or the tour operators for you to be picked up from Kluang, Mersing or Johor Bahru.

By boat

With prior arrangements, it is possible to get to Kampung Peta by river from Kampung Orang Asli Tanah Abang, which is located downstream along Sungai Endau. You will have need to make your own way to FELDA Nitar 2 plantation east of the park, where the Tanah Abang jetty is located. Note, however that this 3-hour boat ride upriver is not often attempted due to the time and costs involved.
