The Luminous Forest of Tambun’s Lost World

Deep within Tambun’s Lost World lies a magical Luminous Forest; an enchanted tribal village.

Imagine a life in a magical wonderland where friendly creatures come out to play when night falls. Beating of the drums breaks the silence of the night. Our heartbeat syncs with the drum at a fluttering pace as we take our first step into this enchanted forest. It feels like we are about to enter a tribal village with a story to tell.

Bridge of Luminosa

Made of authentic Malayana rafts, the Bridge of Luminosa links our world to the mystical Luminous Forest. Tribe elder Makalani was the first to cross the bridge and enter the forest.

The Malayana Family

Humalaya Malayana. The Malayana family welcomes us into the forest they call home.

Mother Sophea

Mother Sophea is a talking tree as old as the Luminous Forest itself. She is believed to have existed 400 million years ago and it was she who spread magical seeds which gave the forest its magical glow. It was Mother Sophea who allowed Makalani and the Malayana tribe to make the forest their home.

The Lights of Aiyanna

Deep in the forest, there are special flowers created by Mother Sophea.

The Lights of Aiyanna can illuminate the minds of those who sit beneath it, washing away all evil feelings and thoughts.


The protector of the Luminous Forest which will spit deadly venom at any evil doers who seek to bring harm to the forest.

Garden of Light emanates enchanting glow in the forest.

Luminous rocks fill the jungle.

This beautiful butterfly is one of the giant magical creatures in this enchanted forest.

Let the magical glow of this Luminous Forest lead our way …

Countless steps within the Luminous Forest are meticulously painted with complex patterns using UV paint.

Brave, strong and the symbol of strength for the Malayana Tribe stood guide in the forest.

Open your eyes wide and don’t blink as you approach the Wapi Springs as there is a tiger lurking.

We are captivated by the magical forest, we spent two nights in a row checking it out.  At the end of our exploration we had a hard time snapping back into reality; that we are actually within the grounds of a theme park.

Created as an expansion to the Lost World Of Tambun’s night park, Luminous Forest is open from 8pm to 10pm (Wednesday to Monday. The park is closed on Tuesdays but opens daily on school holidays).

    Heard so much about Tambun’s Lost World, really want to visit and stay there one day. Love the light and glow of the forest.

      I find it unbelievable too that this is our first time here. We’ve heard of the name of this park but never hear more about it. I always thought it is just a theme park with wet and dry park so I assume no need to go all the way to Ipoh for that.

      Surprisingly they have so much more to offer. This has got to be one of the most under-rated park in Malaysia. They should blast out more to let people know about them and what they’ve got to offer.

      I grew up in Sitiawan yet we did not step foot in Ipoh back then. Hard to believe right? I don’t think I have been to Taiping. Hahahaha.
