Batek tribe living in the oldest rainforest

Orang Asli simply means "Original people" in Malay Language. The Orang Asli, who continue to live in a nomadic lifestyle in the oldest rainforest of the world, the Taman Negara, call themselves Batek.

 

Today I saw a photo from Gary Isaac and reminds me of this image from my archive which was taken deep inside the rainforest of the Tamar Negara. The mother with child was just as surprised as I was.
