Berembun Forest Reserve

The Berembun Forest Reserve is located in Negeri Sembilan. It is a protected forest that is almost 4,000 acres in size and up to 3,900 ft high. The forest is gazetted as a protected area during the colonial times as it is also the water catchment area, providing half the
water supply for Seremban.

The original vegetation was dominated by Keruing, Meranti and Balau of the Shorea species which generally dominate the low lying forests in Malaysia. Logging was conducted on the fringes of the reserve and the Orang Asli Reserve Land in the 1950’s and 1980’s but regeneration has done well in the area.

Water trickled down the slopes, channeling rain and underground springwater into streams which snaked around the large granite boulders and fallen tree trunks into the Batang Penar River below.
