The Orang Asli are the "original people" of Malaysia. They are nomadic and build temporary shelters in the jungle. They are classified by some anthropologists as Negritos or pygmies because of their short stature. This family group is staying near Kuala Tahan. They are quite friendly and somehow smile through nightly visits by groups of tourists. They hunt tree dwelling mammals with blowguns and poison-tipped darts.
