Getting there and away
Getting to Endau Rompin National Park requires a few changes of vehicles, but experiencing the virgin jungle makes the hassle worthwhile.
The main entry point to the park is known as Kampung Peta. It's 60 kilometres away from a small town called Pahang (your last chance to get supplies), but the road between them is so rough that the trip will take two hours in a 4WD vehicle. If it's been raining heavily, the road may be washed out.
Hiring a 4WD vehicle from the Parks Office in Kahang to Kampung Peta costs 370 ringgit for the round-trip.
Package tours to Endau Rompin often include pick-up from the transportation hub of Kluang, which is 38 kilometres from Kahang. Kluang is served by regular buses from Kuala Lumpur (four hours, 25 ringgit) and Johor (90 minutes, 10 ringgit). Kluang also has a railway station with trains from Kuala Lumpur (five hours, 27 ringgit) and Singapore (two hours, S$16).
