The island is perfect for those wanting to learn diving and/or diving for fun. I am an adventurous person and what excites me is the thrill of going on an adventure or trying out new activities that I have never done before. I was certainly hyped up at the thought of going scuba diving but a note of caution for first time scuba divers, is you have to listen and follow the clear instructions from the PADI certified Dive masters and Instructors. Never compromise on your own safety and rest assured that you are in good hands of the certified instructors at Tioman Dive Centre.

#3 – JUNGLE TREKKING

 

If you are interested in seeing some of the wildlife here on Pulau Tioman, you can join the Jungle Trekking tour by Berjaya Tioman Resort. The Jungle Trekking tour will definitely arouse your curiosity and interests of the wildlife species and some of the animals you may encounter during the tour are Monitor Lizards and Chameleons. City dwellers, be warned of the mosquitoes and these mosquitoes in the jungle are huge and “commando trained”. If you’re a magnet for mosquitoes like me with Type O blood, do not forget to apply insect repellent! Nevertheless, wear a proper trekking shoes with good grip as the trekking trail can be difficult and also slippery.

 

 

Along the trail, you will hear a lot of creepy wild animal and insect sounds coming from the jungle. While the jungle trekking can be a great experience, you need to be reasonably fit and is used to climbing and trekking. The steep ascent is extremely tough on both legs and you have to make sure you’re staying properly hydrated. The taste of water never taste so good to me as I reach the top of the jungle to Asah Waterfall.

 

Asah Waterfall Tioman

 

Asah Waterfall or also known as Mukut Waterfall is one of the many waterfalls found in Pulau Tioman. You’ll know that you are approaching the waterfall as the water is loud and soars out through the serene view of green nature. The trek up to Asah Waterfall will test your physical ability and endurance but it is a rewarding change from the sand and sea.
