Templer Park is an oasis for travelers who want to experience the natural beauty of Southeast Asia and escape the crowds of Kuala Lumpur. This forest reserve covers some 1,214 hectares of wide, open space, and is home to scenic walking trails, towering waterfalls and bubbling jungle streams.
Visitors can spend the day trekking through the thick foliage of this wildlife sanctuary, where it’s possible to spot monkeys, hawk-cuckoo, Malaysian crested lizards and dozens of colorful indigenous birds and insects. Picnic areas are available for travelers who want to enjoy a sacked lunch before taking a dip in a quiet stream or heading to one of the park’s fishing spots to try a hand at pulling a local catch from the waters.
Templer Park is located in the Klang Valley in Selangor. It is about 6 kilometers from Rawang and roughly 22 kilometers from Kuala Lumpur. Travelers can access the park using the Rwang exit of the North-South Expressway or by taking the 66 bus from Puduraya in Kuala Lumpur.
