About Mersing

There are quite a few attractions nearby. If you are a nature – lover, do spend some time stopping by the national park in Johor, namely the Endau Rompin National Park with fascinating flora and fauna there. Pulau Hujong is too, near to Mersing town with approximately 14km away. It is the ideal spot for relaxation session.

Established in 1993, the 48,905-ha Endau-Rompin (Johor) National Park is the largest protected area in the southern half of Peninsular Malaysia. This ancient rainforest realm in north-eastern Johor is a treasure trove of biodiversity, and a critical habitat so important for the survival of the country’s globally-threatened megafauna, including the Malayan Tiger, Malayan Tapir and Asian Elephant.
Endau-Rompin’s beautiful landscape and rare flora and creatures make jungle trekking the foremost activity for visitors. Featuring 250-million year old rock formations and prominent sandstone plateaus, you can find unique varieties of plant life, including enormous umbrella palms, in the park. Additionally it is Malaysia’s last refuge for the Sumatran rhinoceros and is a tiger habitat – although these beasts are rarely spotted; the park’s birdlife includes red jungle fowls, black hornbills and grey wagtails.
