Rompin State Park or Taman Negeri Rompin (TNR) is located in the district of Rompin, Pahang. It was gazetted by the Pahang State Government as Permanent Reserved Forest, under a functional class of State Park Forest in the year 2000. Covering an area of 31,797 hectares, this protected forest is sustainably managed by Pahang State Forestry Department.
TNR is a forest area that is blessed with interesting features of flora and fauna, geology and history. It has a unique natural beauty and pristine forests that are hard to find elsewhere. Among the natural resources available in TNR include 253 species of birds recorded in TNR along with 83 species of mammals including bats, 14 species of snakes, 9 lizards and 3 turtles. In addition, the forest is also famous for tourist attractions such as Seri Mahkota waterfall, Guntung Keriong Peak which is an attractive ‘plateau’ area, Padang Tujuh with its endemic flora biodiversity as well as the crystal clear streams of Ulu Kemapan and the Kinchin River.
The State Park’s rainforest is perhaps best characterized by its biologically rich lowland mixed dipterocarp formations, which generally predominate below 300m. Various accounts of The Park, however, also pay close attention to the edaphic hill forest formations, in particular the spectacular fan palm forest shrouding the hillsides of Gunung Janing, Gunung Barat and Gunung Tujuh. The fan palms are Livistona endauensis, a species endemic to The Park and its surroundings.
