Tak Kenal Maka Tak Cinta Ep5: Merapoh

Tak Kenal Maka Tak Cinta is our monthly tourism-themed series on Earth Matters, which aims to highlight lesser-known ecotourism spots right here in Malaysia. Done in collaboration with the Ecotourism & Conservation Society Malaysia (ECOMY), we want to take you back to the great outdoors, and experience the many off-the-beaten-track nature spots our country has to offer. 

For this episode, we're heading to Merapoh, a small town in Lipis, Pahang, which is located next to the Pahang-Kelantan border. Merapoh is one of the lesser used entrances to Taman Negara National Park, and is a popular spot for spelunking activities, and is also known for its karst landscape. We explore the teeming biodiversity, trails, and waterways of this area with Andrew Sebastian, the Founder & Chief Executive Officer of ECOMY.
