Located at the eastern frontier of Kedah bordering the Thai province of Yala, this 160,000ha forest is home to most of Malaysia’s large mammals and is home to 9 of the 10 Hornbill species found in Malaysia including the very rare and endangered Plain-pouched Hornbill. Also found in the area are the three man made lake of Ahning, Pedu and Muda.
Your journey will begin at the Muda Lake Jetty some 150km from Georgetown, Penang. From there you will be taken on a 1.5 hour ride on a traditional long-tailed wooden boat across the lake and up the Muda River to Earth Lodge at Kuala Labua.
Some of the activities you can experience include visits to salt licks, wildlife watching, swimming and frolicking in cold forest streams, tubing down river, visiting a limestone hill and its mysterious caves, watching birds and other wildlife. You can also just laze around the lodge grounds listening to nature’s music and being awakened by the haunting call of the White-handed Gibbons.
