The Muallim district area, in Perak State, Malaysia is rich in diversity of flora and fauna. Among the many varieties in the area is the 23,908 hectare Behrang Forest Reserve (HSB) surrounded by stunning flora and fauna. The area is expected to have a variety of potential natural resources for sustainable development. To collect scientific evidence, a study was conducted to provide a potential inventory of recreational activities in the Behrang Forest Reserve area. The study found that Behrang Forest Reserve has a variety of attractive flora and fauna and is ideal for being a location for moderate and high intensity outdoor recreation activities.
