Tioman is the largest of the volcanic group of idyllic islands off the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia called the Seri Buat Archipelago. Tioman's natural beauty is its main draw. Its lush emerald tropical jungle, covering about 12,000 hectares of the island and its pristine mountain streams and waterfalls are home to dozens of unique species of exotic mammals, reptiles, birds and flowers.

Tioman's spectacular and unmistakable profile is provided by Gunung Kajang. Towering over 1038 meters high, this oft cloud-shrouded long-extinct volcano is not only Tioman's highest mountain peak, but it's also the highest mountain of any island off Peninsular Malaysia's East coast and will push even the most hard-core hikers and rock-climbers to the limit of their ability.
NOTE: Peak season is March and July - August
