Jahai Tribe of Belum Valley, Malaysia

The Jahai are one of the nineteen Orang Asli people groups living in Peninsular Malaysia. They are classified under the Negrito (or Semang) subgroup. They refer to themselves as Jah Jehai or Orang Semang.

The Jahai, like all other ethnic groups of the Negrito, are generally of short stature with darker skin and have more curly hair. Jahai settlements are by the rivers and lakes located in the Jeli district of Kelantan and the Hulu Perak district of Perak.

One such settlement is at the edge of the Temengor Lake located in the State of Perak.
