The Belum-Temenggor forest is located in the north of the Malaysian state of Perak, and borders with Thailand. It covers an area of 3000 km² and is the largest continuous forest complex in Peninsular Malaysia, believed to have existed for 130 million years, making it one of the world’s oldest rainforests, older than both the Amazon and the Congo. Most of the primary rainforest lies in the Royal Belum State Park to the north.
