Ever wondered what’s it like sleeping on a boat in the middle of a large lake embracing a thousands years old tropical rainforest in South East Asia? Take a cruise to Temenggor lake on a typical houseboat!

The boat is fully equipped with facilities and trained crew, solely for you and your group. The Standard boat have comfortable cabins and can accommodate up to 16 persons. The houseboats can cater to a number of activities decided by you! If you are a fishing enthusiast, the captain will adjust the route in areas more suitable for catching fishes. There’s also the option to have bamboo rafts instead of “modern” kayaks. Normally, you paddle on bamboo rafts while standing on it, a bit like a Venetian gondoliere!

Boats have facilities on board, such a kitchen, where the staff will prepare barbecue meals or serve you breakfast, and even karaoke, in case you and your friends want to sing before going to sleep in the evening. The boat will halt after sunset and you will spend one night sleeping in the middle of Temenggor lake, entirely surrounded by the pristine forest and a starry sky. Waking up at the sole sounds of the rainforest it’s altogether a special experience on its own you don’t want to miss! On some occasions you may even spot elephants at dusk (although this is a rare occurrence) or hear gibbon calls. Thought the whole trip it is more common to spot large birds, such as eagles, sometimes hornbills.

Outfit Recommendations

● To have with you suitable shoes and outfit for the boat (it may be wet and slippery); bring mosquito repellent or your own mosquito net / sleeping bag if you wish. Although the houseboats are sheltered you may want to bring a raincoat for rain and a hat and sunblock to protect yourself from the sun.
● Only bring with you the minimum necessary luggage; the boat cabins are not as spacious as a hotel room; therefore bring only the necessary personal items you will use in the course of the cruise. You may leave the remaining luggage, if any, in Pulau Banding or at the last hotel you checked out from.
