Kuala Tembling is the starting point for the boat ride to reach Taman Negara National Park.
Kuala Tembling is a 20 minute drive from Jerantut. Most tour operators in Jerantut offer jeep rides to Kuala Tembling.
As of Nov 2006, there were 2 boats a day from Tembling to Taman. The morning boats leave around 9.00 am and the afternoon boats depart around 2.00 pm (except on Friday, when only the morning boat operates). The cost was RM 20.00 per head.
The boat ride takes almost 2 hours and can be uncomfortable as the boats are narrow wooden boats, so it is advisable to try and sit in the front so that you can stretch your legs.
