When the Temenggor area was flooded, the local population of Orang Asli (indigenous tribes of Negrito people) was displaced and relocated to a number of villages. One of these villages, sort of a human zoo, is located on a peninsula and is visited every day by boatloads of tourists. Many of these tourists give snacks and other junk food to the kids. About 5600 Orang Asli of the Temiar, Jahai and Kinchu tribes live in the Belum-Temenggor forest.
