Situated about 30 seconds’ from the park entrance, this is the closest accommodation to the park that isn’t actually in the park.

Owner Edward is really helpful, full of useful information and can arrange homestays in one of the surrounding villages. He also provides a transfer service between the airport and the lodge, costing five ringgit. The only accommodation available is in the 20-room mixed dormitory; although a little bit crowded, all beds are single storey. Bathroom facilities are basic, with only cold water available, but are similar to those on offer within the park.
