Belum Forest Reserve
There are approximately 60 salt licks that are found scattered all over Belum. There salt licks are vital for the wellbing of the animals in the forest. There are plenty of potential for the operators to develop particular areas of these salt licks for ecotourism purposes. However, in order to realize this mission, much more planning and extensive research has to be done as it has been known from the past that introduction of people to the area will cause the animals to flee them their usual waterholes and saltpans. This happened in Taman Negara and must be taken note by the authorities of the Belum Reserve as well.
Salt licks are commonly found with various types of animal tracks such as the Sambar Deer, the Kijangs, Tapirs, wild boars, Seladang, Malayan Gaur, wild boars and many more. Even elephant tracks can be seen crossing the salt lick area. While being here at the forest reserve, be sure to take some moment to enjoy the breath-taking scenery and the beautiful sunset over the Temenggor Lake.
You can also visit the Terhong waterfall when you are here. It will take a 2-hour boat ride and another 4 hours of trekking to reach this waterfall. You can also choose to visit the Orang Asli settlement which is along the Sara River. The Belum forest has many other activities that you can indulge in. Some of them are jungle trekking, bird watching, camping, kayaking and fishing.
