Animals that live in the national park are the white-handed gibbon, Malaysian tiger, Asian elephant, wild boar, tapir, slow loris, deer, long-tail macaques and leopards. Though there's a higher chances of you meting Sultan on the hiking trail than meeting Pak Berang!

6. Visit the orang asli settlement
Endau Rompin is also home to the Orang Asli of the Jakun tribe. Find out how they survive in the wilderness and protect themselves from danger with their hunting and tracking skills. See their recreational activities and listen to their mesmerising yarns about the myths of the surrounding jungle.
7. Monster Catch
It is said that giant Toman (Giant snakehead fish) swim freely in the river around the park. In a protected environment free from any pollution, it is no surprised that the Toman will grow to some crzy size! Permit is required.
