MNS Visit to Berembun Forest Reserve

Jungle trekking is not always about exploring the wild jungles like the Amazon. One does not need to go specifically go to a national park just to experience a connection with Mother Nature. There is another option that may be equally as challenging and exciting as the wild jungles, and that is the forest reserves located around Malaysia.

One such forest reserve that is worth exploring is the Berembun Forest Reserve which is located in Negeri Sembilan. Measuring about 4,000 acres in size, the Berembun Forest Reserve stretches from the outskirts of Seremban town right through Kuala Pilah. Although logging went on at the fringes of the reserve about four to six decades ago, regeneration measures has gone well throughout this area. The forest was gazetted as a protected area during the colonial times as it played an important role as a water catchment area that supplied half of Seremban’s water needs.
