In terms of plant species, the Endau-Rompin forest type consists of Lowland forest, hill forest, sub-montane forest, tropical heath forest. Some part of Rompin State Park which is Padang Tujuh area has been classified as the High Conservation Value Forest (HCVF) type 3 where it is considered a rare, threatened or endangered ecosystem. This is due to the existence of heath forest that is hard to find because of its ecosystem biodiversity and unique landscape.

Malaysia is listed as among the 12 mega-biodiversity countries in the world. It is richly blessed with flourishing biodiversity of flora and fauna that call it home. Some species are endemic and found nowhere else in the world.

The major forest complexes in Peninsular Malaysia are divided into four parts of Central Forest Spine (CFS) which are Banjaran Titiwangsa-Banjaran Timur, South East Pahang, Chini and Bera Wetlands also Endau Rompin Park- Kluang Wildlife Reserves. The term Central Forest Spine is used to describe the sensitive forest complexes in Malaysia Peninsular due to its importance and cruciality not only for wildlife but also humans.

Endau-Rompin park includes both Pahang and Johor state where it is the only large forest reserve remaining in the south of peninsular Malaysia. It is rich with biodiversity, geology, myth and culture of indigeneous people or Orang Asal (OA) that live in the forest.

The type of forest at Endau-Rompin is Lowland forest, hill forest, sub-montane forest and tropical heath forest. Each of the forest types combined have formed an ecosystem which the species evolved is high in value. For example, the tropical heath forest at Endau-Rompin State Park (Padang Tujuh area) is located at an elevation of less than 1000 metre which is scarce and infrequent to be found. The plant vegetations are also unique cause not only the plant diameter is small but the vegetation is also like a bonsai which is believed to be influenced by the factor of soil acidity. Usually, the kind of bonsai vegetation is found at higher elevation such as Gunung Tahan. Plenty of pitcher plant, wild orchid and endemic palm species Livistona Endauensis are found here too.Thus, Padang Tujuh has been classified as a type 3 High Conservation Value Forest (HCVF) due to the existence of heath forest which is hard to find considering its ecosystem biodiversity and unique landscape.

Besides the uniqueness of the plant species, Endau-Rompin is also classified as an Important Bird Area (IBA). There are 55 sites that were chosen as IBA in Malaysia. Malaysia’s IBA program is coordinated by Malaysia Nature Society (MNS) as part of the effort to promote the conservation of birds and biodiversity in Malaysia. The states of Sarawak, Sabah, Pahang and Perak have the highest number of IBAs in Malaysia. Large numbers of bird species are dependent upon this delicate habitat. Jambu Fruit Dove (Ramphiculus Jambu), Scarlet-rumped Trogon (Harpactes duvaucelii), Great Hornbill (buceros bicornis) and Lesser Fish Eagle (Haliaeetus humilis) are among the Near Threatened bird found in Endau-Rompin which need to be protected.

In terms of geological rock formation, there are three major rock types which dominated the area of Endau-Rompin. These are volcanics, igneous intrusion and sedimentary sequences that include granite, rhyolite, tuff,sandstone, shale and mudstone . The age of the rock at Endau-Rompin is estimated to be around 248 million years old which is Permian-Carboniferous age. Water flowing at the ledge of rock formations have formed a beautiful waterfall such as Seri Mahkota Waterfall, where visitors can see that the layer of rocks bedding looks like the layer of cake.
