Taman Negara Kuala Koh is the only official entry point in the state of Kelantan to Taman Negara. Located at the end of an oil palm estate, Kuala Koh is unique as compared to the more populous Taman Negara Kuala Tahan. Kuala Koh is situated at the conference of Sungai Lebir and Sungai Koh. Sungai Lebir is the main river that joins Sungai Galas to form Sungai Kelantan at Kuala Krai.

Taman Negara Kuala Koh is part of the Peninsular National Park covering 4343 sq km which includes the state of Kelantan, Trengganu and Pahang. It is home to many unique species of flora and fauna.

Road signs with elephant were observed in the park. A scene that depicts the rich fauna in this part of Taman Negara Kuala Koh. Elephants dungs were seen on the trail to Kuala Pertang where an abandoned resort was located. Around the vicinity of the staffs quarters, there were many fruit trees. Civet cats, binturongs and mousedeers were seen scurrying when shone with torch. A stingless bees nest was torn apart to reveal the hollow part of a tree by a sun bear.

Apparently, the sun bear had ripped open the nest to savage for honey. The hanging bridge across Sungai Lebir provides easy access to the trails, Impian hide and canopy walkway. It was destroyed in 2001 when the river overflowed its bank. The hanging bridge is now repaired and one can access to the other side of the river.

There are about 350 species of birds in Taman Negara Kuala Koh. A hornbill was seen at a tree near a chalet. The calls of birds were refreshing to the quietness of the park. Cicadas were heard everywhere. Quacking frogs were heard too. On moonless night, the whole sky was filled with stars. A heaven for astronomy fans. Quite, tranquility and friendly staffs of the Wildlife officers make the stay at Kuala Koh an unforgettable trip.
