Kelantan - Gua musang

The Nenggiri River flows from the backcountry of Kelantan. From the highlands it meanders its way through a series of rapids and later joins the Kelantan River at Kuala Krai. A section of the river, from Kuala Betis to Kuala Setelu, has become the playground of adventure and nature lovers. This remote area will probably remain unchanged for some years to come. Vast tracks of virgin jungle line both sides of the river broken occasionally by an orang asli settlement and limestone outcrops. Some of Malaysia's richest archaeological caves are to be found along the river: Gua Cha, Gua Chawan and Gua Jaya. These caves are archaeologically important as unlike other caves throughout the Peninsula, they have been undisturbed by guano collectors.
The most interesting way to get to Gua Musang is by train from Kuala Lumpur, Johor Baru or Singapore. From Kuala Lumpur, it takes eight to nine hours.
By road, Gua Musang takes three hours from Kota Baru and about five hours from Kuala Lumpur. T
here are express coaches and taxis from Kota Baru and Kuala Lumpur.
There are also daily flights to Kota Baru.

From Gua Musang, a pre-arranged transfer can be made to the starting point of the rafting expedition in Sungai Nenggiri at either Kuala Betis, some 40 minutes away, or historical Gua Cha, about 90 minutes via the trunk road.
