Posted by M. A. Muin on June 8, 2010 at 2:40 AM

I've been given a chance to give lecture and field training to the University of Victoria, Canada students in the Tropical Field School Programme organized by School of Biological Sciences. It was a great experience but pity i don't have time to do herping in this magnificent forest of Taman Negara.


It started on 4th June 2010. We stays at Traveller's Home chalet, Kuala Tahan.


We make our way to the Canopy Walkway by boat and head back by trekking through the Bukit Teresek trail to Kuala Tahan.
